The Social Security office in Rego Park is up and running once again.
Renovations to the office located at 63-44 Austin St. forced its closure last December, making the hundreds of daily visitors have to travel to other offices around Brooklyn and Queens – including Jamaica, Flushing and Bushwick.
“The reopening of the Social Security facility in Rego Park is great news,” U.S. Rep. Grace Meng said. “I’m pleased that the facility has been modernized and I hope these improvements will allow its staff to better serve our borough.”
All 32 employees stationed at the Rego Park office prior to the renovation returned upon the office’s reopening. The full-service facility handles all matters including retirement, disability and survivor’s benefits as well as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for qualified individuals.
The office is open five days a week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon.
