    This place has been a nightmare to deal with even for a simple name change. They repeatedly did not give me all the information in regards to documents that I needed, they have no way to do it online, they have no way to call into the local office, and you have to stand outside and wait and hope that someone sees you at the door. They have no outside drop box. I rushed over when I finally got my last needed document and showed up before 4pm one day and stood outside for 10 minutes. At 5 minutes past 4, someone finally showed up and they were unwilling to take my documents and walk them inside, literally 5 steps to put them in their drop box. Lazy workers!

    I have to cut my hours at work to get my disability and if I cut my hours I'm not going to make enough to pay bills and buy food till I get it. You shouldn't have to cut your hours till your on it because cutting hours makes people at risk of loosing their housing and etc. They need to change some of their guidelines. Social security is a joke and should be shut down. They don't give you what you rightly deserve. They lowball you. There workers don't know how to do their job. They told me I had to reply so I did and now they tell me since I didn't repeal to it I won't be able to get my back pay. I tried to repeal and you told me I had to reply. Not right at all. Don't know how to answer the phone either.

    I have been waiting 3 years to get survivors benefits. My appointed rep hasnu2019t returned a call in 3 years as well as losing paperwork!

    Phone is always busy. They could at least put one on a wait and call back. The customer Service number stated that they are too busy and hiung up on me

    I have never encountered a more insidious group of bureaucrats who are bent on denying an applicant with judicial responses that have nothing to do with the matter. Deliberately basing a judgment on a non-relevant occurrence while putting my very life in harmu2019s way for not only a disability decision but completely ignoring my SSI application even though Iu2019m older than the current retirement age. Even being an honorably discharged disabled veteran has not been of any advantage.

    Office is NOT open. Signs posted on the door instruct you to call for an appointment. Online instructions say to go to the office to get a replacement card due to name change. So frustrating and a waste of time! I could've mailed the documents a week ago and not wasted my time driving to the office only to be greeted by a locked door.

    I was told, when I called ahead that I could do a walk-in but after waiting 45 min was told he couldnu2019t help me and needed an appointment. I explained my side and taking the day off to get it done and now being told I couldnu2019t be helped today. I got upset and asked to talk to someone in charge. He goes behind his cubicle and they start talking about me. He was talking to a female that should know that we can hear them and she wasnu2019t saying nice things about me/my situation. She told him it was up to him and he did do my interview and I thanked him and told him I was sorry I was upset but people should be trained on answering questions on the phone. He told me I could have been talking to the Kansas City office and they have different rules. I want to thank that young man as he went above his duties today to help me out. You have an excellent employee working for you. The lady he was talking to should be more nice and for Gods sake if you are going to talk about someone keep your voice down or go to a closed room.

    We are in the end phase of this outbreak. We need local offices open. I thought essential workers where supposed to continue working. Local SSI offices are the appidamy of essential.

    I spoke with 2 different people and ended up with conflicting information. The first person I spoke with was knowledgeable and very helpful. The second person gave me opposite information to what the first person had given me. Very disconcerting

    My daughter is 19 years old, schizophrenic, and intellectually disabled. It has been close to a year since my daughter's case was won. We have yet to receive any correspondence or benefits from Social Security. I follow up with the office on a weekly basis. NOTHING EVER HAPPENS. My husband and I have paid an unbelievable amount into the social security system over the past 40 years. What is wrong with this picture??????
    real men think like men Brown
    They are lazy and would lie to you in a new York second. All of them need to be fired and replaced with people that will actually do their jobs
