Ribbon Cutting Re-Opens Rockaway Park Social Security Office
Community leaders, elected officials and residents joined Acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn Colvin and Regional Commissioner, Beatrice Disman in cutting the ribbon on the rebuilt Social Security office at 113-06 Rockaway Beach Boulevard.
The office had been closed for more than six months due to fire, flood and other damage sustained during Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. On Friday, May 10th, it was officially re-opened.
Adding to the festivities were musical performances by the Waterside Children’s Studio School- PS 317Q band
“The re-opening of the Rockaway… field office will restore our service to residents of the Rockaway Peninsula, many of whom were severely impacted by Super Storm Sandy,” said Colvin. “The return of this office to the Rockaways represents the Federal government’s ongoing commitment to our communities.”
The Rockaway Social Security office serves all the communities of the Rockaway Peninsula and Broad Channel.
The office will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Photos by Kevyn Bowles, Laura Deckelman and also courtesy of Social Security.
