PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- The Social Security office in Pittsburg will close Nov. 15, sending employees and clients to Joplin.

Jewell Colbert, spokeswoman for the Social Security regional office in Kansas City, says the Pittsburg office is closing because of cuts to the agency's budget.

The office's 12 full-time employees will be asked to move to the Joplin office.

Colbert says residents and organizations in Allen, Bourbon, Cherokee, Crawford, Linn and Neosho counties in Kansas will obtain services from the Social Security office in Joplin.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/17UgspR ) between 400 and 500 international students, researchers and scholars at Pittsburg State University also will affected because they need a Social Security number to work.
