Effective Monday, the Oneonta Social Security office will close a half-hour earlier each day. The office will be open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays.

According to a media release from the office, the shorter hours are in response to federal budget cuts to the Social Security Administration. Employees will continue to work the same hours, but a shorter "public window" will help cut down on overtime, the release said.

Social Security services, such as applying for benefits, signing up for direct deposit and informing the agency of a change of address, can be accessed online at www.socialsecurity.gov or by phone at (800) 772-1213. The TYY number, for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, is (800) 325-0778.

The Oneonta Social Security office is at 31 Main St., Suite 1. For information, call 432-1760.
