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.

      Hi Jerry, thank you for your question. Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability beneficiaries and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who do not have qualifying children under age 17 do not need to take any action with the IRS. You will automatically receive your $1,200 economic impact payment directly from the IRS. You should receive the automatic payments by direct deposit, Direct Express debit card, or by paper check, just as you would normally receive your Social Security benefits. Treasury expects automatic payments for Social Security beneficiaries no later than the end of April and automatic payments for SSI recipients no later than early May. We hope this helps.

    Its nice to know that the social security is taken care of, but what we would like is when are we going to get our stimulus checks.

    Thank you. It’s rough enough that the employees there are putting themselves at risk. I thank them for their service.
    I’m kinda afraid of what might happen if things get opened up to soon.

      I, too, am very concerned that this is far too soon to “‘open up” the country. Most states haven’t yet reached their peak; many are seeing larger and larger numbers of cases every day – and we’re still not testing. Unless and until we have a unified, nationwide plan for testing (aren’t we supposed to be the “UNITED” states?), we have no business opening everything back up. I, for one, do not intend to listen to anything the Mad King suggests, either…inject disinfectant into our bodies because it kills the virus on.surfaces? Are you kidding me? And the scary thing is, he was dead serious when he said it. I’m going to listen to my governor, and the credible scientists and medical professionals, not some dementia-riddled old carnival con artist. I’m staying home like everyone else should be doing until we’re certain that it’s died down, and even then I’ll only make absolutely necessary trips until we have the vaccine.
