    It hardly took me 2-3 weeks to get a new SSN issued after 1 week of landing to US. This office is super convenient and efficient. I got a next day appointment over the phone call and the person explained everything like what all forms I need to carry.

    Just came here to drop some papers in a drop box. Security guard name hol gun was very very very very rude. Unprofessional and uneducated. He shouldn't be in this job. I always tell people if you don't like your job. Don't do it .

    Using COVID as yet another excuse not to be available or provide service that we are required to use. Amidst the million signs posted on their closed doors (complete with misspellings and contradictions) is evidence of very real frustration.

    The experience with this particular office was exceptional and smooth. The telephone agent was amazing. Public agencies should learn from this officen(Response to the reply: The gentleman answered our call at 9:23am this morning)

    I'll arrive to the US in June and I need my first time SSN urgently. Somebody told me that you do not accept international travelers unless they are 2 weeks in quarentine. Is that true? Thank you

    About 3.5 months, Mountain View Office did nothing about providing a SSN number (first time) and one fax to this office.. it happened in two weeks like clock work. Wish Mountain View office learns a thing or two from here.nThank you to all staff in SSA Redwood City!
