Social Security provides services to the public through 1,321 district and branch offices, most of which are leased by the General Services Administration (GSA). In September 1977, Social Security identified 36 offices that it considered inadequate and 16 offices whose space problems have been resolved after lengthy delays. In January 1978, 89 offices considered to be unacceptable were identified. Many of the space problems experienced by Social Security were attributable to delays in leasing space for office expansion or relocation, overcrowding and overuse of offices, and inadequate services.
