FAQs Regarding Form 8955-SSA - On the Form 8955-SSA, for what purpose can I check the “Special extension” box?


You must only use the “Special extension” box for extensions announced by the IRS  such as extensions for presidentially-declared disasters or for service in, or in support of, the Armed Forces of the United States in a combat zone. (See the instructions “Other Extensions of Time to File” for more information.)
