West End’s Social Security office moves to Southwest


The U.S. Social Security Administration has replaced its local office at 2100 M St. NW with a spot near L’Enfant Plaza in Southwest.

The new location, 1300 D St. SW, opened late last month to replace the Northwest site. In a news release, the agency notes that the new site is within two blocks of two Metro stops — the L’Enfant Plaza station on the Orange, Silver, Blue, Yellow and Green lines and the Smithsonian station on the Orange, Silver and Blue lines — and is served by two bus routes. The new office also has greater privacy in its reception area than the previous one, the release states.
