Media Relations

Providing accurate and timely responses to media inquiries is part of our job as a government agency. We also view the media as a community partner in making the public aware of our services. At the same time, SSA must balance our obligation to the press with our moral and legal obligations to protect our clients' rights to privacy.

All media inquiries to SSA must be cleared by the Public Affairs Office. Please submit your inquiry via e-mail. Detailed inquiries are welcome, and at minimum should include the following:

  • Topic of your inquiry;
  • Publication or broadcast deadline*; and
  • Your e-mail address and at least one telephone number.

You may also contact the Public Affairs Office at (510) 271-9100 or fax (510) 271-9120.

*It is SSA's policy to respond to all media inquiries. While we will make every attempt to meet your deadline, due to heavy caseloads we can not guarantee a response within a specific timeframe.
