Update on Social Security Offices

Earlier this week, The White House issued national guidance regarding Opening Up America Again. We are evaluating this information as it relates to our agency and are continuing to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation across the nation. In fulfilling Social Security’s mission, when we reopen offices to the public, we will provide a safe environment for both the people we serve and our employees.

As we continue to develop our plans, our offices will remain closed to the public for face-to-face service, and our employees will continue to work remotely and provide services to the public. We will provide updates moving forward and post updated information on the status of our offices, by state, at our website. Our agency will provide these updates directly, and please disregard other sources of information regarding the status of our offices.

We will continue to provide the vital service the public relies on. Please visit our website for more information about our services during the pandemic.

  3. I’m trying to get a replacement Social Security card for my 17 year old grandaughter. The only documents she has are her student ID card, report card, and medical card. I sent in the SS-5 form with the documents but it was sent back to me with the explanation that she will have to meet face to face with a Social Security rep to match her face to the documents. With SSA offices close, what other options do we have to get a replacement card? Thank you

    • Hi John, thanks for using our blog. For your security, we do not have access to private information in this venue. You will need to contact your local Social Security office for an explanation. Please look for the general inquiry telephone number at the Social Security Office Locator. The number may appear under Show Additional Office Information.

  4. This month my social security check will deposit into a bank account that’s closed.And no I’m 71 years old I can’t remember what my phone number was in 2012. And the bank has no records from that. For some strange reason oh, I’ve been with them for 42 years. Show how my bills won’t get paid and the only way I can straighten it out is by them seeing my face like they don’t know who I am. Very very frustrating. So I’m just I’m going to sit here and watch my whole financial world Fall apart because social security can accommodate my needs. Very frustrated and disappointed.again in my life I’m going to suffer and not get good service because of people who break the law and create fraud. Tired of being punished like that. I’m not the bad guy. The guy worked all his life and put money into social security hand over fist.
    Okay I’m done

  5. The fact that Social Security Offices are still closed to the public is unacceptable! What do you need to open them up? The DMV has been open and working for a month now, what are YOU waiting for? I am unable to get my issue solved online or over the phone, and I must talk to a Social Security employee in person. How long does it take you to open up the Social Security Offices? This is absolutely bonkers, ridiculous and it disregards the needs of the public. Shame on you for your lack of empathy and service to the public!

    • The common reply we get is they are making plans to protect public when they reopen. I do not understand the last updated date of this blog was on April 24th and today its June 4th. Are the plans still not developed?

  6. I have a dilemma. I just signed-up for Medicare and need to provide physical copies of my I-551 and foreign birth certificate. I have both of these.

    The SSA site strongly cautions against mailing-in these documents – plus it is a legal requirement that I have my I-551 with me at all times.

    All SSA offices remain closed thus I am unable to visit my local SSA office to present hard copies of the documents in question.

    What does the SSA suggest that I do in this situation?

    Many thanks!
