Social Security Opens Alternative Office
In addition to the assistance being provided at the FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers, Social Security employees will provide additional service to area residents.
Working Tuesdays and Thursdays at the office of State Assemblywoman Michele R. Titus, Social Security representatives are now available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"We're very excited to provide additional service to those who really need our help and we will continue to seek other community facilities where we can provide similar services to Rockaway residents," said John D’Agostino, Social Security District Manager for Far Rockaway. "A special thanks to Assemblywoman Michele R. Titus for making this possible." Titus’s Far Rockaway office is at 19-31 Mott Avenue on the 3rd floor.
Again, starting this week, Social Security representatives are available Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1931 Mott Avenue, Suite 301. People may also call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 for general information, or visit Social Security online at www.socialsecurity.gov.
The alternative office is necessary, officials say, until the office at Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Beach 113 Street is fully repaired, something that may take several months.
