Trying to get through to this office is an exercise in futility if you do not have the name of someone in the office. This is the worst automatic call router I have ever seen.
Hello, I am trying to get a benefit letter that shows my benefits from December 2018, The letter that is online does not show that. i went in to customize my letter and no back information is there. It is only the current letter. I tried to print up the payment details and it doesn't show my name. I have tried to take a screen shot with the information and my name will not print.

You hear stories about how hard it is to navigate social security. I went early to this office and was second in line when the door was opened. I was assisted my a very helpful and informative women named Alice and was done in 20 minutes. I don't know if the the day was unusual or if Alice was unusually kind, but I found it painless.
