I am an exchange student, and I did not get SSN number yet. However, I wonder I should have SSN number to make Florida ID card.

I retired in August 2018. Several months prior I had applied for SS benefits. However, on October 2, 2018 I went back to work earning more than is allowed under the SS program. I have filled out form 521 and made repeated phone calls to the SS office here in Tallahassee, but i keep receiving monthly checks. Please stop the checks!!! I will gladly pay back what has been dispersed to me if you would only stop sending more checks - PLEASE!!!

My purse was stolen and my child's social security card was in it. What do I need to bring in to apply for a new card?

The "helpful" questions are the dumbest things I have ever seen. None of them are actual issues and the wait time is ridiculous while on the phone. There are thousands of people in Tallahassee alone, get some frigging help in that place or put down your damn donuts and pick up the phone

I, along with a capacity crowd, waited for over 2 hours to speak with a representative. My mother recently passed away and she was the payee representative for my disabled brother. I was attempting to be established as a payee representative as I am his only living relative. The rep that I spoke with never gave her name. It took about 45 minutes to process my request which I had already filled out before coming to the office. She then told me that I needed to set myself up as the payee rep for my brother at the bank where he was getting his automatic deposits. She didn't bother to tell me that I needed to wait until I had the appropriate form indicating that I was accepted by the administration as a payee rep. So I went to the bank and of course they couldn't help because, guess what, I didn't have the appropriate form. Nor did she say if I would be receiving it in the mail. Because of my mother's passing, SSI did not send his deposit and I am without any means to continue his care until I get it. Some of us really don't know what to do and need things CLEARLY explained. It's very difficult sitting in that office for hours waiting for your number to be called only to be "helped" by someone who said she "needed a break." Unfortunately, I will have to return to your office, wait again for a ridiculous amount of time, and hope that the next person I deal with is more competent.
