    I tried making an appt. ref a letter I received reducing our ss monthly payments, advising we had 60 days to appeal. An appt. was not available within the 60 day period but I was advised to get to the SS office b4 8am & they do take people without appts. We arrived at 7:45am only to find out that the union office does not open till 9am. The temperature is 17F & doors are not open. Not good!

    I'm applying for Disability Benefits, and I went to this hellhole because I got a voicemail on a Friday "reminding" me of the appointment I had that Monday; which I had never made. I went anyway, and was directed to the literal rudest human being I have ever encountered, who informed me that I was there was because I had indicated that I wanted to apply for SSDI too. I had not, having already determined that I wasn't eligible. The woman informed me several times that I was lying. She then told me that she was *required* to fill out an SSDI application for me, but that it would be rejected. So I had to answer a bunch of irrelevant personal questions (e.g. "How much money does your boyfriend make?" and "Do you ever refer to your boyfriend as your husband?") while this woman sighed and/or argued with every answer I gave. At one point, she asked me what my disability was, and when I told her (Major Depressive Disorder, Social/Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and hypersomnia, which had lost me my job), she *rolled her eyes* at me and sighed again, just to make her contempt for me as clear as possible. Eventually I was dismissed with a "go away" hand gesture. TL;DR: If you have no choice but to go to this miserable little place, do not expect to be treated like a human being in any way whatsoever.

    Social security sent me a notice that I had to pay back all of the benefits that I received last year. I filed for benefits late in the year and they said that I had made too much money and was not allowed to have the benefits, so I would have to pay them all back. I felt that this was untrue, so I went to the office to see if I could get a resolution. The first person I saw told me sorry that's the way it is, go home and pay the bill. I asked to see someone else. He was not thrilled with that but put in a request for me to see someone. An hour later I got to talk to someone else. She told me that I was correct that it was a computer error and I owe nothing. How many people are sent home to pay the bill when they don't have to. Be careful, not everyone at this office knows what they are doing.
