Limited Hours Makes it More Difficult to Meet in Person With SSA Employees

Did you know that the Social Security Administration is making it more and more difficult for you to take care of business face-to-face?  In fact, the SSA has reduced the hours it is open to the public to save money, closing earlier each day, and has begun closing its offices at noon every Wednesday.  In addition, over the last fiscal year the agency spent millions of dollars in taxpayer funds on overtime alone, and still has not been able to keep up with incoming cases.  The Congress has clearly indicated it will not appropriate anywhere near the funds SSA was provided under the one-time stimulus allocation, and additional overtime hours are likely not forthcoming.  Clearly, the situation will get worse before it gets better, and those who have applied or will apply for disability benefits should recognize that fact.
