New Hours for the Social Security Administration

Effective August 15, 2011, Social Security field offices nationwide will close to the public 30 minutes early each day. For example, a local Social Security office that is usually open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. will close daily at 3:30 p.m. The new hours will provide cost-cutting measures for the local offices.

"While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow us to complete face-to-face service with the visiting public without incurring the cost of overtime for our employees," said Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security. "Congress provided our agency with nearly $1 billion less than the President requested for our budget this fiscal year, which makes it impossible for us to provide the amount of overtime needed to handle service to the public as we have in the past."

Luckily, most Social Security Services do not require a visit to an actual office, as most can be done either online or over the phone. And, as our clients know: We'll deal with the government; you have enough to worry about!
