The Social Security Administration offices -- both local offices and hearing offices -- do close periodically for weather events. Recently, a high number of closures have occurred due to the extreme weather conditions.

Office status can be checked at

Nevertheless, ALWAYS be sure to get confirmation that the Social Security office is closed prior to missing a scheduled appointment. For those with scheduled hearings, you should obtain confirmation from your attorney or a hearing office staff member prior to failing to attend.

Stay warm out there!
