Social Security Administration

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that administers Social Security, a social insurance program consisting of retirement, disability, and survivors' benefits. To qualify for these benefits, most American workers pay Social Security taxes on their earnings; future benefits are based on the employees' contributions. (Source: Wikipedia)

Perhaps you are working for the SSA or interested in working for the SSA. Here is a forum to share your experience with the SSA.

I’m fairly new to the agency (approaching 2 years). My significant other has landed a job on the other side of the country and I want to move there with him. What is the process of hardship transfer (will I even qualify for it?) and what all will I have to do to get that going, assuming I can do it.

I'd suggest you contact someone in your Regional Personnel Office to obtain SSA's current procedures for this situation rather than asking on a message board that seems to be frequented by very few current SSA personnel.

Consult the PPM (Personnel Policy Manual). Or, the short answer is simply ask your OS or supervisor. I did a hardship transfer in 2014 when my spouse relocated, and it was quite easy. But, knowledge is empowerment, so check the PPM so you have context.
