Provide local offices for in-person assistance

At the Office for the Aging, we constantly have people coming in to ask us about Social Security benefits. We do not have that expertise, and refer people to the 1-800 number. But people tell us they can not get the answers they need by calling the 1-800 number or looking on-line. They want to discuss their individual situation with a real person one-on-one. There is no SSA office in out whole county, so many folks have to travel 30 miles or more to the next closest office. It is a real hardship for many..
