Every time I call this office the wait time is at least half an hour ,sometimes more than that. There’s one lady, she is not helpful and very rude. It’s been more than estimated time to receive the card and still they are not actively looking into it. People’s jobs are dependent on ssn, these people don’t understand the urgency. Very disappointed.

If you have trouble reaching someone at the East Orange Social Security or if you contact someone and they don’t want to assist you, please file a complaint by Mail Write a summary of the incident in question. Include the incident's details, the date and office address where the incident occurred, and explain why you feel you were mistreated. Include your name, contact information, and Social Security number, plus the name of the person that treated you unfairly. Send the complaint summary to: The Chief Administrative Law Judge; Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. Follow up on the complaint by calling 800-772-1213. The representative can give you a status on the case. It may take several weeks before the complaint is investigated. Online Go to the SSA's Complaint Form, which can be found in the "Resource" section below. Click on the "Complaint Form" link. Complete all of the fields. Enter your email address, select a subject (Service issues, for example), and enter your complaint in the subject field. Your complaint should include your name, address, a summary of the incident or issue, the SSA office address, and your contact information. Then submit the complaint. I hope this helps. We must hold the employees of SSA of East Orange, NJ, accountable for their behavior. How the office opens and no one ever picks up the phone, and then when you finally get someone, they pass you off to someone else without informing the client they would be transferred. New hires are not completing documents correctly. The supervisors are close friends with the staff, so no one ever gets reprimanded. It's sad, and this location needs honest, compassionate, reasonable employees for this location. People that want to work. I hope I was able to help someone with this information. Please remember to ask for names so you can have evidence of your call. All calls are recorded, so make sure you are recording for your records as well. Document all communications with SSA.

We are British Citizens and I sent my son's application for a SSN, expecting a denial letter that we could take to the MVC to apply for his permit. This application was sent by Fed Ex to you on August 13, 2020 signed for by A Walker.This application was sent together with his passport and birth certificate, which means that as a 16 year old foreign national, he has no ID in this country. Ive been calling the office for more than 3 months with no resolution. We are desperate to have this resolved in some manner.
