Social Security HQ in Woodlawn in line for $150M renovation

The U.S. Social Security Administration headquarters in Woodlawn is slated for a $150 million renovation.

The funding, contained in the recently enacted consolidated federal appropriations  measure,was announced Tuesday morning by U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, SSA acting Commissioner Carolyn Colvin, Rep. Elijah Cummings and other officials.

The money is for the design, engineering and construction of a renovated Altmeyer Building at the agency’s headquarters. The renovation will allow the 10-story building, which was constructed in 1959, to address health and safety issues, meet current accessibility standards and improve space utilization.

The Social Security Administration employs 63,000 individuals, including 11,000 at the headquarters in Woodlawn.
