service was as expected. totally crappy. the line never ends for government employees in a role like the clerk in window 2 on the morning of 6/25/2019 and since the actual, or wishful, citizenry of the United States of America isn't purchasing a product or service, there is no incentive to provide anything that could be described as 'customer service.' I's rather wait outside before an office opens, than inside after so I arrived at 8:30. I was the third person to get a ticket from the kiosk. The officer at the kiosk was helpful to the persons in front of me and cordial to me. He asked if i had the form i would need filled out already. I did. Door number two opened and the attendant quickly dispensed with one of the persons in front of me. My turn. It's 9:07 I'm victim number two. I approach the window and politely state that I am seeking a replacement card for my minor son and put the pre-filled form down. Addendant looks at me, a pause, then yells "boy, you must still be asleep this morning!" and pushes my form to the side. Says nothing else, just looks at me. More pause. I repeat that I need a replacement card. She says "the sign said you needed to have your id ready to give me first!" I saw no sign, but I have everything I need at the ready ready, so i give her my license. She looks at my form and my license and says " do you have a 'sealed school transcript' or signed 'shot record.' Frankly, I don't know what a 'shot record' is. I ask "a what?", a 'shot record' she repeats. I say a what? She says "a SHOT RECORD! A.DOCTOR.SIGNED.IMMUNIZATION.RECORD!" I say no, I have a birth certificate..she interjects with a snapping "thats not an identity record!" A school ID? I say. "NO" a report card? 'NO' a bank account statement "NO, I need to see either a shot record or a sealed school transcript!" ... Takeaways: 1. the get-a-number Kiosk should have a note that says "please present ID first", the TV screen with number being served is good second place to put it. Everyone that comes into the office is forced to look at the kiosk. The only other thing they're guaranteed to look at is the indicator of when it's their turn. 2. it's 2019, have an online appointment booking system. Even the CT DMV has this! You have to really want it bad enough to be worse than the DMV. Just be better. 3. Fire the attendant in window 2 this morning. Fire that woman and let her go work stocking shelves in Ocean State Job Lot she can do as slow and crappy a job as she chooses, bitch all day about it, provide 'non-help' to the hapless losers that cross her path and collect the pay and benefits her effort deserves 4. Do not list "school ID" as a suitable form of ID if it will not be accepted 5. Provide clearer detail about what a 'school record' is or a 'health record' is on the website 6. Expand office hours , or stagger office hours, as 9:00 to 4:00 is a difficult window, especially when the website has misleading information about required documents and no way to make an appointments 7. Identity theft is running rampant. This office runs at the speed of 1990. The only advancement ids the 'take a number' kiosk. Automate this process and obsolete this loser's job. keep the best, ditch the rest 8. For giggles, when I got on this website I called the Ansonia CT office to make an appointment i've been on hold the entire time 9. the thing I'm most upset about is that "School ID" is listed as a suitable form of identification on this website for the task i wanted to accomplish with the SS Administration office this morning...and it was deemed not acceptable. Sight-unseen 10. I can imagine anyone will ever read this, and I cant exactly take my business elsewhere, but I feel a little better

How long would it take to get by mail my Disability Benefits Award Letter?
An award letter, AKA award notice, is what shows that a claim for benefits has been approved.
The Award letter is usually mailed to the recipient within a few months of Social Security approving their benefit application.
The Social Security office does not have an established deadline for mailing the award letters. Some claimants will get their letters even after Social Security has issued their first benefit payment or earlier than that.
The wait is longer if your case was decided on a hearing.
