I was supposed to have an appointment on 03/19/2020 due to COVID-19 I never had this appointment.

The social security office is closed due to COVID. It is absolutely ludicrous to expect people to mail in forms of identity in one envelope. I asked the agent, "So, I have to write my social security number on the form and mail you my passport. Then, I just pray that it lands in the right hands?" The agent responded, "Yes, you have to mail those forms. We don't accept copies. We do not have a drop box" The office has not received any guidance to when they can open safely. It's weird that government departments are not deemed as essential. It is now September 2020. I think they should be able to open with masks, hand washing upon entering, and a limit to people in the office. Clearly the government is not that concerned about fraud and our safety. I am very disappointed.

I called the downtown Milwaukee office to see if I can make an appointment to talk with someone part signing up for Medicare Part B. None of the options applied so I had hoped to be directed to an operator for further assistance. Instead, the call was ended. If it is possible to set up an appointment, that would be very helpful vs sitting at the office until my number is called. However, if doing this is not an option, what time of day is least busy to come so i do not have to wait too long. Thank you.
