Post offices in areas of West Virginia most affected by the recent snowstorm are holding Social Security checks for people who live where service is currently unavailable.
"We're doing everything we can to help get these checks to our customers," said Larry Wagener, manager for the Appalachian District of the U.S. Postal Service, in a news release. ". . . Our carriers are doing a great job. But their safety is a big concern for us. We greatly appreciate our customers' patience," Wagener continued.
Customers should call their local office before making the trip, he said. Valid photo identification with an address that matches the home address must be presented to receive the mail.
