    I called inquiring about in person appointments to legally change my name after being married with the Oceanside SS office. I was on hold for about 10 to 15 minutes. When I was able to speak to a representative he was very abrupt and rude over the phone. His tone of voice almost sounded confrontational and I've never before had an experience like this with any customer service or support representative in any situation ever. I honestly had to establish to him that he can not speak to me that way and that he was being really rude given I am calling to ask a legitimate question. I am deeply dissatisfied with my experience.

    Prior to my 65th birthday I went to the Oceanside Social Security Admin Office for medicare option election and apply for medicare card. At that visit I was advised and agreed to make telephone appointment to discuss the available medicare options and that they (SSA) will call me. Unfortunately I have to visit their office to inquire why SSA did not call me. It turned out SSA incorrectly recorded my contact information. So at that visit, I completed the option election and it was promised the medicare will be mailed to me in about two weeks. The two weeks past but I did not received the card. So I went back to their office for the third time only to be advised the wait time is more than two hours and it's faster to get a replacement to call an the 800 number. I called the 800 number and after 70 minutes waiting and in less than three min conversation, the clerk said the card was mailed - but I did not received it. So replacement card was again ordered, the clerk said it will be mailed in about four weeks. Its been five weeks since my conversation with the clerk and I have not received my card. So I the 800 number again and again I have to endure the automated response. After five frustrating contacts with the office, it's unbelievable inefficient the office is.
