    I work in a restaurant in Wallingford I gave them my social security number and in the two fortnights they give me the payment roll I get another number from my social security terminals, I asked them to correct my number and they did not. What should I do, how do I verify if they are providing me correctly.

    FEMALE REPRESENTATIVE AT THE NEW HAVEN BRANCH WAS SO RUDE AND CONTINUED TO OVER TALK ME AS I WAS TRYING TO EXPLAIN. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DISRESPECTED. THIS AGENCY IS SUPPOSED TO HELP PEOPLE AND NOT ACT AS IF THEY ARE DOING US A FAVOR!

    What a bunch of low class Security Boys with little man syndrome!! Today, January 14, 2020 at 12:30 PM, I walked in to the building to go to the Social Security office. I am on crutches and had to take my boots off. I completely understand and I did!! When it came time to put them back on I asked for one of the many empty chairs over by their “station”. I was told they could not walk over there to get it for me, because they could not leave their “station”. I had to sit on the floor to put my boots on and then try to get up off the floor with my crotch in a hip scheduled for replacement surgery in four weeks. All I can say is IGNORANT!!!! POWER TRIP!!! PATHETIC LITTLE SECURITY GUARDS!!! I guess it is important to you to show your “POWER” over a 60 year old woman, on crutches, as YOU CLEARLY DO NOT WEAR THE PANTS IN YOUR OWN HOME, or YOU WOULDN’T BE TRYING SO HARD TO FLEX YOUR MUSCLES AT YOUR PATHETIC JOB!!! I think it was THE LORD, JESUS CHRIST who said.... What goes around - comes around! MAYBE...... SOME WILL TREAT YOUR MOTHER/DAUGHTER THE SAME WAY, ONE DAY!! ALL IN PAY BACK FOR YOUR LOW-CLASS MINORITY MENTALITY & IGNORANCE!!

    Today I waited an hour to be seen. Mr. Hewitt called made back and made every minute I spend waiting count. He was professional AND personable, smart AND funny. He handled my situation with ease and left me feeling buoyant. What a difference from what I had been expecting. Please make sure his superior knows this. He is definitely one of your top employees. Thanks, Nina

    I visited the New Haven Social Security office in the fall (November), 3 months prior to my February birthday. I expected my first benefit to arrive this month (March). When it did not, I called the toll free number on the Medicare Premium Bill and was informed that I had not filed a claim. The agent we spoke with at the office was a man in the back office of the New Haven department. Please advise., as I am awaiting my payment.
