The Hill Op-Ed: Time is money: Let’s open Social Security field offices, not close them

I write to share with you the
Op-Ed below that recently appeared in the Hill expressing support for passing legislation to protect the American public’s access to Social Security Administration (SSA) field offices.  The article raises a number of points about the importance
of these field offices to our constituents.  I urge you to cosponsor my bill, H.R. 7146–the Maintain Vital Access to Social Security Services Act of 2018, that would require the SSA to take certain steps, including seeking and considering public input, prior
to closing a field office.   For questions or to be added as a cosponsor, please contact Chris Goldson in my office at chris.goldson@mail.house.gov
