    What a joke no service at all, I have spent 90 min waiting getting hung up on, nothing! I would fire the person in charge of service! I am going to drive down to the office.

    It's a real shame. The person in charge of this department claims that he had to close down the office to protect employees and clients. I see many people on almost a daily basis struggle trying to get their problems fixed but the social security department has done a lousy job taking care of even just the most major problems. You go to their website, it asks you to call them, you call them and wait for a long time and they ask you to bring all kinds of documents, you go to the office and they're closed, so you call them again and they tell you ' oh, we only accept documents on Monday, you go there on Monday and they make you wait on a long line for several hours just to take your paperwork. Now that they have your paperwork who knows how long it will take until they take care of your problem so 'good luck'. The truth is this: Closing all offices is just a way for them to cut their budget and save revenue, if they really cared about people, they would have more people working and helping all these poor people who have been banging at their doors on a daily basis, feeling frustrated and lost tremendous confidence on the leaders of the social security department. Restaurants have opened up, and so have many other businesses, why is it that the social security department still has their doors closed and are not willing to help those who are in real need and need their support now more than ever. Get your act together social security administration!

    Over the past week, I have tried to fax a request for reconsideration to my local Long Beach office but the line has always been busy. No one has a fax anymore, I have asked everyone I know. I found a fax machine, but then no one has a land line. I went to the UPS store, but I have 25 pages to fax and their machine makes them upload all the pages, and THEN dials and when it is busy they have to start again. I have tried on several different days to call my local office, and I am waiting on hold and then I am hung up on. I need guidance on how to get the request for reconsideration to my local office in a different way, and I cannot find anyone to talk to. I am an autistic woman, doing this to help a friend with kidney disease who is overwhelmed with pain, and between the two of us, we can't find a human way to navigate this system to turn in a form in a timely manner. I am afraid that because it is taking so long her claim will be denied and I do not know how to ask you for help. This is challenging. It is great to say call directly to ask a question, but my calls keep getting disconnected. What am I supposed to do about this?
