    I am having problems to get a SSN card at SSA at Rockville MD. I provided all my documents. Two month ago I discovered calling at Rockville agency that THEY LOST ALL MY DOCUMENTS. So I started the process again providing all my documents AGAIN and the man told me I will receive the card in my home in two weeks. And Today I had no information about my case.

    I have tried to get in touch with an actual person for the last two days, calling multiple times. The system just keeps making me wait for 15-20 minutes, and then hangs up on me. What business would do this? I have incredibly important questions to ask about documentation I submitted online, but SSA is telling me to submit the document before 20 October, or else.

    Hi, I'm an au pair and I would like to have an appointment to get my Social Security Number. I have been calling to the Rockville office (is closer to me) but I haven't had any answers.

    Hello, I will like make an appointment

  5. Jul 26, 2021

    I just tried to call three times plus another time the other day and all four times I was hung up on. Unacceptable. This is the only way to make an appointment so they need to start answering their phones.

    I am contacting through here as I have talked to one representative on the phone after waiting on the line for 15 minutes and he hanged up on me. The reason of my call was because I am trying to get an appointment to get my social security number as I have just moved to the country. When the man asked me for my address, I provided him with the address that I have registered at work which is a friend's house (Arlington). Unfortunately I havent yet been able to rent a place so, I tried to explain to him that the reason why I was trying to get an appointment at the office in Rockville was because 90 % of the time, I am staying at my boyfriends house which is near this office. He automatically started telling me that it could be problematic with the Post Office and that it could be a problem, he mentioned that I needed to register my address with the Post Office or something of the sort? ...he complained that I was not listening when I was actually trying to ask him to clarify what he was explaining to me and see what the solution would be. Bottom line: I need to get an appointment to get my Social Security number and I would ideally like to do it in this office and not in Alexandria but I am not clear now if i can get it in any of them.

    Today I called the office to get information regarding my sponsor benefits and the staff a lady how answer the phone was very rude, she didn’t let me to explain my situation and rise her tone of voice. If the office is close and the phone is the only way why the social security don’t training their staff to be mores respectful and answer nicely. I was waiting long time to get this. Now I know how social security works. SO BAD!

    I have been put on hold each time I called Social Security, Rockville office. After going through all the prompts it puts you on hold for a Representative for 10 minutes and call is disconnected,

  12. Feb 9, 2021

    Officially one of the worst customer service in the world! They cannot accommodate non English speaker and gives people hard time to anything done. People are extremely rude in the office. Had to call in several time to try to different people but everyone is rude. What is the point if you cannot do anything in the office. They won't allow people to make appointment. I was trying to make an appointment for my father whom doesn't speak english but they say, 'No you cannot'. PLEASE JUST CLOSE AND STOP WASTING PEOPLES MONEY.

  13. Jan 28, 2021

    One comment I would like to make is to this office: please refrain from hanging up on people before the call is over. It is very unprofessional.

    Good Afternoon, I called the Rockville SSA office to inquire if I am able to organise an interview once I receive my EAD from USCIS. The lady that responded was short throughout the entire call and at times irate. I asked to confirm the information that I could not schedule an appointment until March, at that time, the lady I was speaking to abruptly terminated the phone call by hanging up, without finalizing the call or asking if I had any further queries, which I did. I understand this is a busy time for all and that COVID has made it hard for many to do their jobs. However I was courteous on the phone and at no time short or rude to the customer service representative. I am happy to provide further details on the call if required. This was most unwelcome and absolutely unnecessary, especially in a time like this.

    I am trying to report my husband's death and apply for survivor benefits. My phone calls get disconnected after long wait periods. I would like to make an appointment to talk with someone. How is this done?

  16. Jan 12, 2021

    when the people are older need to be more patient and authorize their family to talk with the agent. We called the phone twice and we were waiting for an hour without a result. It is too much time.

  17. Dec 22, 2020

    I tried to call twice today and waited for over 26 minutes just to be disconnected. Not able to leave a message...

    I am 82 years old and permanent resident and I want to apply for medicare

  19. Nov 12, 2020

    The Rockville office of the SSA is one of the worst. They still can't tell me if they are in possession of my important documents. I am going to have my lawyer contact the main office.

  20. Oct 6, 2020

    To anyone reading this, avoid the office in Rockville. Go to another state if you have to. I submitted an application for a new social security card for my son in January and have now been waiting nine months with no updates. I've been calling and trying to reach someone for months and the operational supervisor running this branch does not answer the phone and does not return voicemails. I just tried to call in to the office and after waiting in the queue for ten minutes, my call was disconnected. There is something seriously wrong with this branch. Nine months I've been waiting and I can't even get through to anyone that can help.

  22. Sep 10, 2020

    Are you open for in person visits? I just received a Social Security Statement, and the birth date listed for me is incorrect. I am applying now for retirement, and need that birth date issue resolved.

  23. Sep 10, 2020

    Are you open for in person visits? I just received a Social Security Statement, and the birth date listed for me is incorrect. I was born January 20, 1959 - not February 20, 1959. How is this error to be fixed? I am applying now for retirement, and need that birth date issue resolved.

    I recently applied for and began to receive monthly social security. I forgot to subtract and apply a percentage for taxes. Is there a way to do that on line, or if not, I would like to request an appointment at the Rockville Maryland office. Thank you

  29. Aug 20, 2018

    It is August 19, 2018. My son and I showed up at the Rockville SSA office at 1:55. Window 4 seems to be the only window processing replacement cards. She has done four - FOUR - in over an hour. This is absurd. She keeps leaving the window for ten, fifteen minutes at a time. We expected a wait, but that wait was at the very least doubled by the woman at window 4 essentially not doing her job
