    Trying to get a appointment for my SS

  3. Apr 14, 2021

    After 3 days of my calls not being returned I called the 1-800-772-1213 and a very nice lady answered the call and assisted me right then and there with my concerns and questions. I do understand that local SS offices are busy BUT I had received wrong information from the local office and told they would deny my claim if I did not send in documents in a timely fashion. I did send in the documents but had no confirmation they had been received. I did not want my claim denied. The lady's name was CJ and she was very helpful and told me that my documents had been received and were in process.

    I cannot get anyone to answer phone at this office, after pressing the two or three numbers they tell you to press, it hangs up, Someone at this office needs to check this please. I am turning 65 in May and I do not need Medicare Part B as I am still fully covered under my husband. I mailed in the form I was told to fill out, but have received NO confirmation that this office received it.

    I need to talk to somebody about getting my social security card

  6. Dec 24, 2020

    Early in November our family found out that we did not receive our stimulus money because my social security card said 'not good for employment'. Since being a permanent citizen since 2006 and working for our school district since 2009 it never occurred to me that that had to be changed. So on November 4 I called our social security office in Orangeburg and Mrs. Carmicle gave me patiently all the information I needed to get it changed. I send my paperwork is asap. In the weeks that followed Mr. Gallman took the time to keep me updated about the process and right for Christmas I received my new card. IN spite the difficulties due to the Corona Virus and people working from home I feel very well taken care off in a professional manner and want to thank the people at our local social security office. Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

    The service that you get at this office is terrible. They say they want to help you, but that is far from the truth. Ms. P. Green has to be the most difficult person there to work with. She is very unprofessional and does not know her job. All she does is play games. She needs to be evaluated for her performance on dealing with the public. More training is needed ASAP. My whole experience with her has been horrible. PLEASE HELP THIS HER WITH HER SOCIAL SKILLS. Not a people's person at all.
