Social Security Offices Re-Open For In-Person Services
After two years of operating online with their offices closed to the public, Social Security Administration offices are now open for in-person services including those without an appointment.
“Thoughtful planning and preparation have shaped our process to restore in-person services,” said Acting Commissioner Kilolo Kijakazi in a press release. “Social Security employees are dedicated to serving the public, and we are ready to welcome the public back to our offices.”
Customers who walk in without appointments may encounter delays and longer waits at offices. The administration strongly advices visitors to schedule an appointment to save the hassle of waiting. Phone appointments are still available to assist clients as well. To those who has access to online services, the Social Security Administration encourages to use their website instead.
“Be aware that our offices tend to be the busiest first thing in the morning, early in the week, and during the early part of the month, so people may want to plan to visit at other times,” said Kijakazi.
