    I dont have first name in my passport, but when I applied for SSN the card was printed with FNU in the place of first name. With FNU printed, I am not able to get my drivers license as DMV is not accepting the term FNU in the SSN card. Can you please let me know how can I get FNU removed from my SSN card.

    I've only been on SSI for 1 year I have tried many many times to call as well as my mental health worker they did not respond to her. I get the very minimum bc a woman called asked who has been paying for me. I have no family have 2 state that, family friend of my mother was willing to help me until I got my SSI benefits, this as worker made huge mistake she thinks this person pays for my food my home and I pay no rent. I had to pay all my back pay to this person now so my back pay WAS WAY OFF. NOBODY SUPPORTS ME IM 43 YRS OLD THIS PERSON GOT ALL MY BACK PAY AN STILL GETS ALL MY INCOME. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME CALLING OR GOING THERE, THEY ARE NEVER OPEN AND WILL NOT CALL ANYONE BACK. THEY HAVE 2 PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE WHOLE BUILDING. WHERE ARE THEY? WHERE IS THE HELP OR PHONES?

    I have been to the SS Parsippany office and i’ve noticed it to be very organize, orderly and workers there very helpful. I can’t remember the name who attended to me but she was great. My husband been there too and i was with him and it was the same thing. This was before covid. I really prefer to go there in person. I tried calling few weeks ago, the 1-800-772-1213, waited a while and finally somebody answered, a woman, who took my basic info (name, birthdate, ssn and reason of the call. I provided her with that and there was a pause she told me to wait and then got disconnected. I also tried applying on line before the call i mentioned above,but was asked 3 questions, i believe to check identity, but questions such as, if i dealt with this company, or if i applied for credit with this and that, those names were not familiar except for one, so my answer was no to those, then got rejected because my answers were not correct. How can I remember when it happened years ago. I was locked out for 24 hours. I did not do the on line again so i called on the phone and had that not so nice experience. I still prefer coming to the ss office.

    I called Because we have been trying to fax to your fax number and it won’t go through. Says no answer. Decided to call the 800 number and after going through the ten minute menu I was on hold for the representative and after Ten minutes someone picked up and I could hear them shuffling papers but they didn’t speak and hung up on me. No fax number on website and no ability to send a scanned document. Not good when we are supposed to stay home.

    How do I make an appointment?

  12. Mar 3, 2020

    1) there's a recording 2) the man who finally answered the phone insisted on taking my name, phone, email, and SS# before he would consider making me an appointment, and then he told me 'no appointments available for March or April, call back next week' and he would not provide his name; 3) he also would not give me any info about what to bring but said I could 'just show up' any day. This is completely unacceptable!

    This morning my friend and I went came to your Parsippany office. * First time for both of us. We didn't wait very long and at approx. 9:45am was called in to meet w/ a polite, patient young man named Cesar. He couldn't have been more helpful! He made our experience simple and 'painless.' Thank you having such helpful employees.
