FAQs Regarding Form 8955-SSA - When creating a substitute Form 8955-SSA, what font type and size should be used for the data?


The Social Security Administration recommends a fixed pitch font, preferably Courier or OCR A Extended. 8-Point for all text fields and 9-Point for all numeric fields will allow all displayed data to remain within its respective box on the form. If using a different font, please be sure that the size of the font does not cause the displayed data to exceed the space provided on the form.
