    Are the offices open for in-person appointments?

  2. Apr 1, 2022

    How do I make an appointment at the Ann Arbor office?

  3. Mar 2, 2022

    Can I go directly without appointment to request my SSN? Is the fist time that I do this procedure Thanks

  4. Nov 23, 2021

    Just spoke to a gentleman on the phone who was incredibly kind and helpful!

  5. Nov 15, 2021

    This is a good office for assistance and information!

  6. Sep 10, 2021

    I sent my license and birth certificate to your office to get a replacement ss card. I haven't received my license nor birth certificate back it's been almost 3 weeks.

  7. Aug 3, 2021

    I have received a few phone calls lately that my SSN has been used for illegal activity? I keep dismissing as spam, but just wanted to double check with a Social Security office to be sure.

    I am writing to record my thanks to Jennifer Taylor at the Ann Arbor Social Security Office. Today she helped my husband and me fill our out social security applications. She provided all of the information necessary to make critical decisions about our social security payments. Jennifer was friendly and knowledgeable and made the process amazingly painless. I had heard great things about this office and can now add my voice to the chorus of happy citizens.

    I have been waiting for my social security card since last year. I have not been able to contact anyone at the office in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I can’t get work, my wedding was postponed because I need a social security card to apply for a marriage license.

  10. Jul 15, 2021

    Applied my SSN. I was on the waitlist to get an in-person appointment. And after 4 months, I called and they said you are already passed and your phone cannot be reached. I was shocked because everyone can call my phone. It was fine. And they kept saying there must be some issue on your phone because we cannot reach you. Why can't you have an online appointment system? Well, on that day, the woman forgot to make a copy of my passport so I needed to come back again. Then she told me to wait for 5 weeks. Now two months have passes. I haven't received anything. I double checked several times when I applied for the address. I am pretty sure it was correct. Why can't you just get an online system to let people check the status?

    My daughter's dad is on disability, there is a court order that he has to pay me $300 a month for the last 5 months you have been only sending me $82 dollars he didn't care how I raised her I don't care how he lives now. I just know that he suppose to pay a certain amount every month and you're not by buying those rules. It's not fare to me.

  12. Jun 21, 2021

    The fact that the office is not open and you all Are making it hard so hard to retrieve documents I need. I spoke over the phone about my sons social security card several times and someone sent me our an application the representative didn’t give full details and due to her lack of communication my application didn’t obtain all documents needed to get the social security card for my son’s. The fact that I wasn’t informed about missing information until I called a month later to speak with a representative about the delay she told me my application didn’t have all required information to issue the social security card. I’m upset because I called and planned this out two months in advance to assure I’d have the social security card when I needed. Why didn’t anyone try and reach out to me or at least send it back and that would have let me know something was wrong. But to think I was waiting on the card to arrive and the whole time it was never processed. Smh I’m very disappointed you guys need to get back to work and open the buildings up.

  13. Jun 1, 2021

    Hi! My husband and I recently got married almost two weeks ago and I’m wondering what our next steps would be to change my social security card with my new name.

  14. Jun 1, 2021

    I have joined as a employ at the University of Michigan and I need to apply the SSN for complete my process. I want to know the procedure to further process and the documents requirement. Could you please let me know how to get the appointment?

  15. May 24, 2021

    Hello, I was wondering if the Social Security office in Ann Arbor Michigan on Research Park Drive is open yet or appointments?

  16. Apr 6, 2021

    Again another month where these employees at social security office don't do their job, I called for the court to double check my child support and they said that this is all on social security's and they never lowered it so social security promotes deadbeat dads, never count on social security to ever help you get your child support Bill, this is no joke.

    I need to pick up a award letter

  20. Feb 9, 2021

    What are the hours for the dropbox?

  21. Feb 4, 2021

    Got wonderful service answered promptly and gathered my info In a discrete manner thanks

  22. Jan 18, 2021

    Agree with the post below. Taking several months to return identifying documents is unacceptable. I was also a victim of fraud recently and find it ironic that I was robbed shortly after turning in my personal documents.

  23. Jan 4, 2021

    I was recently married and dropped off my documents and forms on November 23rd to have my name changed. I called around December 15th and was told that the office is about a month behind in processing documents and that they would send tracking information when they process my documents and mail them back to me and that should occur before the new year. It is now past the new year more than a month past when I submitted my documents for processing and I haven't heard anything about my status update. I called the office again to get another status update and the phone wouldn't even ring. After several redials I was able to get to the menu, but when they tried to connect me to a human it said I couldn't be connected and it just hung up. I tried calling again and got a loud screeching noise instead of a ring. I am very concerned as I was required to submit several original copies of identity documents and I would like those to be returned as soon as possible. Additionally, I have to complete my name change in other places to ensure that my tax information is all correct for this year with a consistent name and I am unable to do so without having this step completed first. I 100% understand some delays due to COVID, but this much of a delay is unacceptable when I have information out there that could cause identity theft.

  24. Dec 17, 2020

    I had a phone appointment this morning at 11:30 and no one ever called me. I then tried to call the Ann Arbor office, and could not get through - it never even rang.

  25. Dec 8, 2020

    Request for Reconsideration of my MAGI, I like to make an appointment in the Ann Arbor office to get clarification. thanks.

  27. Sep 27, 2020

    We have an au pair from Austria who is a new MI resident. She is 19 years old and has her international license. She will be here for one year. Does she need a MI driver's license, or will the international license suffice? We are quite confused on how to go about obtaining her a license and if it is required by law.

  28. Sep 11, 2020

    I need a Denial Letter for my wife so whe can have her driver's license I believe is the SSA-L676 form. Could you please tell me what to do? Regards

  29. Aug 26, 2020

    Excuse me. I would like to get SSA-L676 to get Driver’s license. What should I do? Please, tell me .

  30. Aug 13, 2020

    I called today about a number of issues and spoke to a Ms Morgan. She answered all of my questions clearly. She explained things that I had difficulty understanding. She was patient with me and very thorough. I very much appreciated her time and help. I wish I could request her in the future! GOOD JOB MS MORGAN!!

  31. Jan 30, 2020

    Hello, i have applied a social security number on Jan 2,2020. but i still not receive the number card. Please help me make sure the SSN have sent to me.thank you.

  33. Aug 8, 2019

    Why did I have to wait so long for to call you. Also your web sight did not accept my password and it was it. I tried several times and it just simply didn't take it.

  34. Jul 19, 2019

    I called 1-800-772-1213 in order to make an appointment at the Ann Arbor Michigan social security office. I had to wait over an hour for a call back. The woman who finally returned was extremely rude. She said that she could answer my questions on the phone, and I said that I had complicated questions and wanted to meet with someone in person. She was hostile and impatient and said she did not have the ability to make an appointment and that I could only make an appointment online. I told her that I had not been able to make an appointment online and could she help me to make one. She got angry, yelled at me, and hung up! So now I have to start all over again. Now it looks like I’ll have to wait on hold for another hour, which I cannot do as I have family responsibilities to attend to. This is very upsetting.

    Just went today to sign up for my spousal benefits and had the same outstanding service my husband, Paul, experiences yesterday. Paul really appreciated the help he received from Tanya and I had an equally positive experience with Megan. Thank you, Social Security office! So nice to be well treated and handled in an efficient manner!!

  36. Mar 26, 2019

    need appt. at local ofc., no msg. allowed. directed to call back. how is this helpful?

  37. Jul 23, 2018

    It has been almost two (2) months as I sent the SSA-561-U2 form. I have not received any response from SSA. By Law, the response was due no later than 30 days since the receipt of my letter. Thank you.

  38. May 5, 2018

    They sent my SSN to a wrong address. I tried to make a phone call to inform them but never get through. I don't know why this phone system exist...Worst experience ever

  39. Mar 27, 2018

    Ridiculous. Can't call a local number for an appointment or to ask a question! Waste of my time. The federal number is insanely stupid, sends you into a loop that makes no sense and doesn't allow you to talk to anyone until you've answered questions that are completely irrelevant to your questions or needs.

  40. Dec 9, 2015

    The recording used by your offices needs to be updated. I've been trying to get through your 1-800 number for days, and the messages keep repeatedly saying the same thing. I never got through, and twice I'm told I'd get a call back which was under another clients name. Yet if I don't report on time, you want to penalize me. Please update your phone systems.

  41. Nov 9, 2015

    The security guard needs a few classes in customer service. Rude, not helpful, lazy, and it is obvious he hates his job (but liked the power trip it gives him).
