Social Security Field Offices May Re-Open Soon -, SSA

Word on the street is that the Social Security Administration is considering a return to face-to-face service at its field offices around the end of March, two years after closing in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Barring any further pandemic relapses, then, the limiting of on-site service to narrowly-defined  “limited, critical situations” is expected to come to an end. Between now and the official reopening announcement, of course, interaction with the agency remains restricted to fax, phone, and/or online access as described in the SSA’s “Conducting Business with Social Security During the Pandemic” guide published during the lockdown.

Procedures for requesting in-person appointments until the full re-opening takes place are outlined in a post on by Greg Heilman; however, the SSA has established caveats on availability based on “…staffing as well as the local health and safety conditions” according to the post. The post also contains a link to a Twitter post emphasizing the Social Security-related functions that can be handled via online access. Check out the article here…
