PITTSBURG, KS.--- Friday, November 15th will be the last day the Pittsburg Social Security Administration Building will be open. A forum for the community to voice their concerns was held yesterday, two months after the decision to close the office had already been finalized. The community is now being urged to prepare for the changes coming in the near future. After November 15th, the Pittsburg office is instructing residents who need assistance to go online or call their toll free number. If you'd like to talk to someone in person, the three closest offices are in Joplin, Nevada, and Independence, Kansas.
