Social Security Offices Reopen Their Doors to the Public

Social Security Offices Reopen Their Doors to the Public

It was recently announced that the Social Security field offices, which have been closed since the start of the COVID pandemic, have reopened their doors on April 7th of this year. In-person appointments for the general public were limited to those without food, medicine, or shelter. Some offices accept walk-ins while others require an appointment. To save time and energy, SSA encourages everyone to utilize their online ssa.gov website that may provide the information you are looking for.

Be Aware of Long Lines

Online and telephone services are still an option for avoiding long lines at the office. To avoid waiting in those lines, SSA strongly suggests:

  • Scheduling an appointment
  • Calling an office
  • Utilizing their website

You can also check the status of your application, get an instant benefit verification letter, or request a replacement Social Security card online through a my Social Security account.

Health Requirements Still in Place

Safety measurements remain in place because most Social Security offices serve people with health vulnerabilities. Requirements include wearing a mask and continuing to social distance from others. The offices’ busiest hours include early in the morning, early in the week, and early in the month. SSA advises planning your schedule to avoid those times and being prepared with all documents you may need.
