The Towson Social Security office will move on March 6 to 28 Allegheny Ave., the Social Security Administration said Tuesday.

The current location, 110 West Road, will close at 3 p.m. March 2. No service will be available on Monday, March 5.

Office hours at the new location, which officials said is more convenient to public transportation, will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and free parking is available on the fifth floor of the Washington Avenue parking garage.

Officials said many services — such as those offered to people applying for benefits, replacing a Medicare card or obtaining a proof-of-income letter — are offered online at http://www.socialsecurity.gov and do not require a visit to an office.
