    This office is the worst. I have been there 5 times gave them the same information they needed to process my payment n they won't do their job, no one is ever available to speak to its so inconvenient, and they need more help, they keep saying I didn't drop off the paperwork or they don't have what they need I'm so frustrated.

    This place is a joke, I called ahead of time because I was coming from a town over an hour away. I brought all of the documents they told me to, and finally after an hour and 45 minutes my number was called, and to my surprise I was told I needed a verification number.... I just got married, and this is supposed to be a happy time in my life, changing my name, and becoming a wife. So tells me to go to a different place in a different town, instead of informing me that there is a 5 minute online course that will give me the verification number I needed. After driving to the other town which had a 3 hour wait and realizing that and going back after filling out the online course I looked up, I walked in with my number right up to her and she has the audacity to say 'I don't care what you have, or how long you waited or drove to get here. grab a new number' and by this time there is already 30 more people in the waiting room.... I have a job to, and I do it well. You should be fired.

    Tried calling the office to schedule an appointment for a lost SS card. Was on hold for a few minutes, and then the recording said the office was too busy I'd need to call back later and hung up... Nice.

    I have never been on the receiving end of so much disrespect as I was today by OO from this office. I understand it is a difficult job but that is not an excuse to treat people so poorly. If you have a recording of the conversation please have a listen. It is a good example of how one person can tarnish the good work of so many others.

    Received a letter notifying of an appointment. Tried calling the office to reschedule, but unable to reach anyone. We left a message asking to call back as she was listed as the contact on the letter. We also tried calling back multiple times but her extension keeps cutting off, and the general number for the office keeps ringing with no one answering.

    Hello, I work as the receptionist for a social service company, and we received a call from one of your employees who was incredibly rude to me. The number on the caller ID was 952-806-9949. I could not understand his name. But the moment I answered the call he was so rude and practically screaming at me. I told him I was the receptionist and would need to transfer him to one of several people that take care of our SSI. He continued screaming at me until I transferred him. I'm not sure if this is his direct number but he needs to be aware of how he treats the people he's calling. The way he talked to me was not okay no matter what business he works for. Please remedy this. Thank you.

    After a very long wait after having the call ended, i finally reached a woman who kept inverting numbers I gave her. When she finally understood that I needed to set up an appointment, she offered an appointment on March 28, at several different times and before I could confirm my appointment, I was cut off once again. Although she had my phone number she did not call back. By that time i had spent over 30 minutes trying to get this set up. This was extremely frustrating.
