Meng Announces Social Security Office in Rego Park Reopens to the Public
U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens) announced today that the Social Security office in Rego Park, Queens has reopened, and is once again providing services to the public. The facility had been temporarily closed for renovations since December 12th.
The site, located at 63-44 Austin Street, serves on average more than 240 Queens residents per day. During the shutdown all walk-in traffic and appointments were handled by the three closet Social Security offices in Jamaica, Flushing and Bushwick, Brooklyn.
“The reopening of the Social Security facility in Rego Park is great news,” said Meng. “I’m pleased that the facility has been modernized, and I hope these improvements will allow its staff to better serve our borough.”
The Rego Park Social Security office is open to the public Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and on Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
All 32 employees from the facility who were temporarily relocated to one of the three other offices have returned to the location.
The Rego Park office is a full-service facility handling most Social Security matters including retirement, disability, survivors, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
Social Security offices are operated by the U.S. Social Security Administration, an agency of the federal government that administers the nation’s Social Security program.
