    The worst! I have applied for a social security 5 times for a replacement and I've always been denied. Most times I call, they tell me they are not doing in person appointments yet I went for an appointment last month for them to take photocopies of my passport and license, and once again it was denied. I called today 7/21/21 for me to get a new appointment so I can bring my lawful permanent resident in since I was getting it replaced and recently got my new card and the agent I talked to, denied me ever applying for a replacement 5 times, said that I only need my passport and license to get a new card since they have the information of my old resident card, told me to just send the application with my passport and license but I have done the same process 5 times they all got denied. All agents I have spoke to have given me different information, terrible management.

    I need a replacement SS card. I was told I could bring the completed application to the White Plains office. I drove to White Plains on my lunch break. Office sign said it was open, but no access to the office was permitted. I called the posted telephone number three times, and was cut off three times, without any operator even taking the call. That's right, just cut off. I rang the bell for deliveries, and was told, through the closed door, that only one (1) person was there, handling mail, and could not handle or accept the completed application. I was told to make an appointment. Went back to my office, went online to make an appointment, and the website for the WP office had no link for an appointment. So I called the 1-800-772-1213 number and have been on hold for nearly 30 mins. Still holding.

    I have completed and electronically executed my social security benefits application online. The only remaining action I have to take is to send social security my W-2 wage form from my employer for year 2020. Can I do that by facsimile or must I mail a photocopy of the W-2 wage to a social security office?
