Social Security Opens New National Support Center

Social Security has just announced the opening of a new National Support Center (NSC).   The state-of-the art data center is more modern and energy efficient with enhanced disaster recovery capabilities and will meet the agency’s anticipated IT workloads for at least the next 20 years. The NSC meets industry and federal data center standards.

The National Support Center (NSC) will maintain demographic, wage, and benefit information on almost every American. The new facility will replace a previous data center and allow the agency to take advantage of modern technology. Construction of the new facility was made possible through $500 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) of 2009.
