I will be 70 on April 21, 2019 and want to start receiving my Social Security benefits (I currently only receive Spousal Benefits). I prefer a morning appointment at the Covington, GA location. I have tried calling 770.728.1031 but have not received an answer or option to leave a message.

I am very disappointed with the staff at this office. After being on hold for over an hour, I finally was able to talk to a representative; however, at 4 p.m. the representative hung up on me. I assume this is because the office had closed. It would have been nice for the person to at least "good bye". Please work on your etiquette!
