How can I make a appointment to come be seen at the office to apply for ss ?

Anonymous - Nov 2, 2020

I went to your branch office to get my new SS Card with my maiden name on it, and the INEPT person at the counter helping me complete the request submitted the request with my previous married name on it..

I've lost my social security card and would like to replace it. As a resident of Oregon, I'm unable to do it online. Is it possible to get a replacement from the SSA Office in person? If not, how do I replace my card?

I am on disability and have been a victim of payee fraud by Integrity Plus and now a person who is withholding my funds and preventing me from going to the Dr. as needed and only providing me $40 to live on for 4 days . I have a neck and back injury which I need to manage regularly, I do not have brain damage and am competent to manage my affairs. I went to the office and and filed this request. I ask for your assistance to process this quickly. I have contacted Senator Ron Wyden's office, payee fraud and mismanagement is a federal offense and needs to be exposed and resolved. Thank you Michelle Wingert 503-351-1285
