Social Security to Resume In-Person Services at Local Offices April 7

Apr 4, 2022 / By Elaine Floyd, CFP ®

The Social Security Administration has announced the resumption of in-person services at local offices starting April 7.

To avoid waiting in line, they strongly encourage people to use their online services or to call and schedule appointments in advance rather than walking in without an appointment.

Offices tend to be the busiest first thing in the morning, early in the week, and during the early part of the month, so clients may want to plan to visit at other times.

Clients can call the main number at (800) 772-1213 to ask questions or schedule an appointment. Phone lines are less busy before 10:00 am and after 4:00 pm local time. Wait times are shorter later in the month.
