In a brief note to customers delivered just before Christmas Social Security let it be known that they would not be sending their staff back to offices on January 3, 2022, as had been planned earlier in the month.

The original re-entry plan was revealed almost as the Omicron variant of Covid 19 hit these shores. Its effects have evidently, and quite rightly, convinced the management to hold off on opening the doors to customers at this time. There is now no set date for a return.

Therefore, we’ll enter the new year operating in the same way that we left the old, and that means we’ll keep to phone calls, faxes, and scheduled appointments.
