Larson Welcomes Social Security Advisory Board Report on Field Offices, Highlights Importance
Hartford, CT – Today, House Ways and Means Social Security Subcommittee Chairman John B. Larson (CT-01) welcomed a report from the Social Security Advisory Board (SSAB) on Social Security field offices, “Decisions Regarding Field Office Closures”.
“This new report from the SSAB underscores the importance of Social Security’s nationwide network of over 1,200 field offices, which had 43 million visitors and received 58 million calls in fiscal year 2019. Field offices provide vital services to people seeking access to their earned benefits! It is critical that seniors and all beneficiaries have access to them. I will continue to work to ensure Social Security maintains a robust network of field offices and continue to fight against office closures, both in Connecticut’s First District and across the country. I thank the SSAB for producing this important report and Rep. Gwen Moore for her leadership in requesting the SSAB’s review,” said Larson.
