Ever had trouble finding the Social Security office in Tuscaloosa? It’s not easy to find if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

The social security office has a clunky “office locator” tool on their website. It’s almost not worth the trouble.  However, if you’re looking for an office other than Tuscaloosa’s you can find their locator here.

How to find the Tuscaloosa Social Security Office

The Tuscaloosa office is located in the Federal Building on University Avenue.  If you can see this building, you’re in the right place.

If you need directions, click on this Google Maps link: 2005 University Avenue, Suite #1200, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35401.

Enter through the front door, even if you park around the back.  Once you go through security, you will take a right.  Almost immediately you should see a sign for the Social Security office.

Parking at the Social Security Office

There is a lot of street parking both on the block surrounding the Federal Building and up and down University Avenue.  However, most of the street parking is limited to two hours.  Parking is frequently patrolled.  If you stay longer than two hours you are likely to get a ticket.

Behind the Social Security building there is more street parking that does not have “two hour parking” signs up.  There is usually a space or two to be found behind the Tuscaloosa office.

If you’re concerned about finding an empty space or the two-hour limit, you might try the parking garage.  The Tuscaloosa parking garage is on the far side of Government Plaza, the park on the Southeast side of the Federal Building.  Parking in the garage is free and is not subject to the two-hour limit.
