Iowa Field Office Remains At Risk

    From the Clinton Iowa Herald:
The Social Security Administration office in Clinton is in danger of being closed again. ...
The office ... was on the chopping block four years ago when SSA officials said they would close the office by June 1, 2008, and consolidate operations with the Davenport office.
That merger was ultimately scrapped after elected officials and residents raised concerns about elderly or disabled residents’ travel restrictions and discomfort with 1-800 phone numbers and the Internet.
Few details of the current closure proposal are available. U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, sent a letter to Jewell Colbert, the regional communications director for the Kansas City Regional SSA office, asking for more information. Vulich said he had not received any further explanation of when or why the office is being slated for closure.   ...

u know they could train people to do simple faxing of documents to a ss office at the medicaid office that is still in most cities maybe also they could have all the government offices like ss, medicaid and hud in the same building would be so much easier than having to drive all over town.
