Social Security office changing hours

Published 12:00 am Saturday, July 23, 2011

Beginning Aug. 15, 2011, the Andalusia Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. – a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday.

A press release from the agency stated that the changes are in response to Congressional cuts to the Social Security budget. While employees will continue to work the same number of hours, the statement said, the changes should reduce the amount of overtime.

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 or by dialing the agency’s toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213.
