Social security offices still closed to the public nearly two years after the pandemic began

Social security offices are not expected to reopen until April, despite the fact that other public authorities are now in the process of personal service.

Social security offices throughout New York have been closed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. In central New York, residents are struggling to receive adequate social security assistance.

Jeanna Marshall of Nedrow says she spent a total of 48 hours on the phone trying to get answers to over thousands of dollars in social security checks, which she never received, according to CNY Central. When CNY Central contacted Social Security, Chase Bank and Congressman John Katko on her behalf, payments were reportedly resumed shortly after.

Marshall plans, like many other social security recipients, to visit the local office as soon as she can upon reopening.
