    The young lady that I spoke with was very helpful and provided me with a number and the correct questions to ask when speaking with the local SS Office. When I called the number she gave me the recording comes on and just says try your call later. It never lets me leave a message or speak to anyone.

    I really wanna know why do yall so rude in that place. They need to give people job like this that they have a passion for, cause if you have a passion for something, you will treat it like your baby. No home training, no phone professionals. Thats when it shows education aint just it, You have to have a drive not just a degree saying you qualify for that because you study it and some people just done with there wisdom, but anyway good luck with these no home training employees in this place.

    I personally brought my son in to your office in 2019 and he still has not received his social security number. Now my granddaughter, was born August 4, 2020 and she still hasn’t received her social security number. What is going on with your office? Why are you not mailing out these social security numbers? This is a very important document that is needed for jobs and taxes.
