    Very unprofessional staff don’t know how to do their job.

  2. Jun 28, 2021

    Since the beginning of the pandemic I can understand how all community services and agencies have closed, but the simple fact that many stores and agencies are re-opening you'd think that things would have become easier for those seeking help to complete task. Even then with simple task such as needing to get a replacement of a SSN card should have been made easier. Not everyone is comfortable with sending the replacement forms and original copy their state ID by mail to the office. Not everyone is able to complete this task online due to errors or not having a computer. Making an appointment shouldn't be this difficult. If SSA usually experiences a high level of calls, then more staff should be put to work. I've been recommended to call 3 different numbers to be able to schedule an appointment to obtain a replacement of an SSN card. I was last given a number to schedule an appointment. I've call this number more than I can count, waiting for several hours which resulted to the background music stopping and hearing nothing but silence or waiting for hours while the music stopped and then the phone was continuously ringing. This is very time consuming. I went to the office, in where I was told to schedule the appointment by phone. Why couldn't they have assisted me in scheduling the appointment right at the office or why can't this be schedule on the government website. This is ridiculous.

    On May 10th I applied for a new social security card to add my middle name. On the 19th I received my documents back to me. But I still haven't received my new card. They said it will take 10 to 14 days. Where is my card. I'm getting married and you are getting on my nerves.

    I have been trying to set up an appointment for 3 weeks now and every time they keep telling me a different story as to when to call for an appointment at the Bronx Card Center. Every representative have a different lie they are telling people. They don't understand the frustration people are dealing with trying to get an appointment. I was told I need to start calling at 7:30 am to get through which is another lie. I have been on hold well over 7 hours and no one answer then the phone cuts off and you got to start all over again. I called the Bronx card center this morning 5/25/2021 at 8:30am and I got the woman on the phone and she said there is no appointments. I told her that I was informed that the representative said to call back to check for appointment. She said there isn't any appointments going to be giving out. I try to explain to her that is not what the other representatives are saying. She is terrible and she should not have a job giving people false information. This has been the worse process I have ever seen in my life. Do the Governors know the type of people working in these places behind the phone. Why is it so hard to get an appointment. This is a matter of me keeping my job and this are the run around people get it is just so unfair.

    I have been trying to set up an appointment for two weeks! Last week, someone actually answered and informed me that I have to call back on 5/10/21 as there were no more appointments and new appointments will be available that day. I call bright and early and to my surprise someone answered again. I was told that there were still no appointments available and to call back 5/12/21. As I am writing this review, I am still on hold for 23 minutes. I wish I could use the online system for a replacement. I have tried and when I submit, a screen pops up that says they are unable to create an account with the social security number given. This is so frustrating. I think it is disgusting how they treat people. These rude workers may not need a social security replacement cards one day. However, they will need something from somewhere. When they try to call, I hope they are given an equally hard time if not more. Disgusting treatment.

    Nobody is answering phone, I have been trying to book a in office interview for my SSN but nobody is helping me out with this, a lady picked up phone today, she was Rude for no reason and after listening to my request, she put me on hold for more than 45 minutes & never came back. I don't know what to do. I tried all the numbers but nobody could help

    Im getting extremely frustrated. No one answers the phones. How am i supposed to make an appointment. This is really holding me up on a lot of stuff in my life right now.

  8. Apr 2, 2021

    No one ever picks up the phone no matter what time you call. If the offices are closed for in person and no one picks up the phone, how can anything get done. I've been trying to reach someone for over a month. This is ridiculous. What do the workers get paid for if they aren't doing their job? Why is no one monitoring this?

    Do I need to make an appointment to come in and get a social security card? if so how do I go about it.

  14. Sep 25, 2020

    I have been attempting to get a name change done on my account since AUGUST. Every person I have spoken to has been very nasty and unhelpful. I now have no ID, none of my original paperwork. I was just told 'I don't know what to tell you' with the loud sound of TV cartoons and children in the background while I was being spoken to on speaker phone (that is the norm now when you call). This has been the most horrific experience. Yes I understand the backup because of COVID but why do people who need these things for work to KEEP their jobs have to hear that as an excuse. This is taking WAY too long and no one can provide me with an answer as to why.
