All Social Security field offices are cutting their hours to save money. The department made the announcement on Friday and says the 30 minute reduction goes into effective August 15th.
That means instead of 4pm, local offices will close at 3:30. Cutbacks in Congress were blamed for the reduction. The department says most services don't actually require a visit to an office and can be done online or on the phone.
