IRONWOOD\'S SOCIAL Security office is moving from its old location, on Cloverland Drive, to the Ironwood Memorial Building on Tuesday.

The relocation is being undertaken as a cost savings measure.

Workers from Angelo Luppino Construction, Iron Belt, Wis., remodeled the third floor space to accommodate the Social Security Administration office. The federal government will reimburse the city for the remodeling costs paid to the company.

Office hours will be Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

On Wednesdays, the office closes at noon.

Many Social Security services do not require a visit to the office.

Residents wishing to apply for benefits, sign up for direct deposit, replace a Medicare card, obtain proof of income or inform Social Security of a change of address or telephone number may do so online at socialsecurity.gov or by calling 800-772-1213, or TTY 800-325-0778.
