SSA is now offering our most requested forms for download in both Postscript and Portable Document Format (PDF). PDF files are printer independent that can easily print a duplicate of the original publication using any graphics printer (i.e., laser, inkjet, dot-matrix or plotter). The PDF was developed by Adobe Systems, Inc. and allows the user to print a publication close in appearance to the original printed version, preserving typography, columns, charts, tables and graphics.

To read and print a PDF publication, you must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed on your PC. Adobe Systems, Inc. permits the Social Security Administration and other organizations to offer this software to the public free of charge. You can download the Adobe Acrobat Reader version suitable for your system from the Adobe Home Page . Remember to enable the "Load to Disk" capability of your WWW browser prior to downloading the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
