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 https://www.ssa.gov/agency/emergency

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!
