Social Security Offices Will Close Early

Beginning on August 15, Social Security offices will close 30 minutes early each day. For example, an office that is usually open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. will now close at 3:30 p.m.

You do not need to visit an office to complete most Social Security services. Apply for benefits, sign up for direct deposit, replace a Medicare card, obtain a proof of income letter, or change your address or telephone number at www.socialsecurity.gov or by calling 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).
