    I sent an application form SS-5 together with my US passport to update my citizenship with your office via USPS. The document in the priority mail arrived at your office. Later, in about one week, I received my US passport from your office. But today, I received your letter stating that I haven't given you the documents to show my US citizenship status. I wonder what happened when you first see my original SS-5 and US passport.

    I avoid going to the Newark NJ office due to ONLY how expensive the parking fee are..went to the Clifton Nj office...AND IT WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE IN MY lie..Iím in my 50s n went to get my husbands SS card replace. From the moment you get there you are treated like youíre say the least..from the security guards or cops wanna be...Iím not even sure because I have police officers, state troopers, marine officers in my family and thereís always a protocol on handling people....those two old man there are in my opinion ..hummm.?....I honestly can find an adequate word to describe them other than racist towards anyone that was looking for help. They just yelled at everyone..I got the impression that they got off on a high trying to act that they were greater than any god. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE AND REPULSIVE. FELT SORRY BECAUSE MAYBE THEIR LIFE MUST BE SUCH AN AWFUL AND DARK LIFE...KINDNESS GOES A LONG WAY AND IT DOES NOT COST ANYTHING. I TRUYLY BELIEVE IN KARMA. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. THEY NEED TO GO BACK FOR SOME BASIC TRAINING. IT WAS A SAD SITE. BUT I WILL FROM NOW ON GO TO THE NEWARK NJ OFFICE...I RATHER PAY ANY PARKING FEE AND THEIR STAFF ITS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND POLITE...INCLUDING ALL OF THE REAL COPS AND SECURITY PERSONNEL. THAT WASMY EXPERIENCE AND MY OPINION.

    Hello. I need to become a representative payee for my disabled brother ASAP. He is currently living with me. His estranged wife, who lives in another state for the last three years, is somehow getting his check and keeps it for herself, while I am footing all the expenses. My brother has no money or assets of any kind, and is unable to work. He is unable to travel with me to the office, although he can converse over the phone. Please let me know what I need to do in order to change this as soon as possible, I tried to schedule an appointment with the Clifton NJ office, but the earliest appointment I could get was for March!
