SS office announces reduced hours

By Staff | Aug 5, 2011

MARTINSBURG – Effective Aug.15, the Martinsburg Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday.

This shorter public window will allow agency workers to complete face-to-face service without incurring the cost of overtime. Congress provided Social Security with nearly $1 billion less than President Obama requested for the budget this fiscal year.

Most Social Security services do not require a visit to an office. For example, anyone wishing to apply for benefits, sign up for direct deposit, replace a Medicare card, obtain a proof of income letter or inform us of a change of address or telephone number may do so at www.socialsecurity.gov or by dialing our toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.
