    On March 11th I came to your office to get a social security card for myself and my daughter. I received hers and did NOT receive mine. Since everything was closed down due to the pandemic I tried your online service to just get another one and it kept refusing me. So I waited some more. Once June hit I started trying again. This time I constantly called the 877 number you are always posting and it does NOTHING but ring and ring. I've literally called you 106! times!! I need my card so I can get another job! I'm not making enough working one with cut hours and I'm losing my home! I was hired at a job that would literally save my family but my old card isn't acceptable from water damage sustained when my wallet was caught in a fire. You tell us to call the 877 number that YOU DO NOT ANSWER! Your online service doesn't help people with my issue!!! Answer your phone please!
