    I need a replacement card...application or appointment in Boca Raton Fla office

  2. Jan 22, 2019

    I have been in public service for 30 years, first as a public relations professional than as a public school teacher. I know what it is like to deal with the public, and the necessity of being both both patient and professional. Today, my experience with your representative L was one of the singularly most unpleasant encounters in recent memory. I was told by a social security representative this morning by phone, that I could complete my Medicare application online. They walked me through it by phone, because I did not have a password to do it online, and then informed me that I could proceed to the local office to present my W-2, and my ID and be interviewed in order to complete the application. Apparently, I was badly misinformed and the SS representative I spoke with by phone was a completely incorrect according to Ms. L. According to her, no application for Medicare can be filled out with assistance by calling social security. Fine, but she informed of the above in the most insulting and derisive terms. She treated like I was a complete idiot, or a child, at one point saying, "Don't say another word about your phone call!" She didn't have the courtesy to answer my questions. She gave me the option to make another application online in the Boca office, even though I told her I was having a password issue. Her reply, "You can do it without a password," is completely incorrect. It requires a SS password to make the application. I left more confused than ever and considerably upset. There is no cause to treat another human being so unkindly and disrespectfully. Perhaps you need to screen your employees more carefully. People come there to receive help, not abuse.

    The office personnel at the Boca office are friendly and very helpful. I've done both scheduled and walk in appointments. For scheduled appointments I have to wait for at least 50 minutes on the phone for SS to give me an appointment about 1 month or more hence. (They don't always give you a call back option.) For a walk in appointment, my drive to the office is short, I arrive at least 30-45 minutes before the 9am windows-open time to get my walk in ticket, then wait about 30 minutes to be called. All the staff are pleasant, and I get my questions answered and in writing right then. One major improvement to the process would be online appointment registration or a local office phone number to schedule appointments.

    I waited 1/2 hour to fix a wrong address on a social security number.There was a large line, but I got a number. They were organized and I was out of there in only 1/2 hour. I would recommend going to this office.
