    Have called at least 4 times to the Effingham office, but have been disconnected and told that I need to call again later. I need to have an in-person appointment to change my name and am unable to do so online!

    They don't even deserve one star. I took my disability report to them in person and they lost it. Then when I complained they took it over the phone. Now I get a letter and a second request for the report from SSDI threatening to take my benefits if I don't comply!!!!! This office is incompetent and are under investigation. No accountability! Makes me sick.

    Just got off the the phone with a rather rude woman. She seemed extremely disgusted in my call and was very short and kept interrupting me. Unreal
