Soon as you ask a question itu2019s as if you interrupted his whole life . Then when I asked for an in person meeting so I donu2019t have to do this two more times, he hang up in your face for u201cbeing rudeu201d Well thanks to Jason Iu2019ll be submitting my information a THIRD time due to his lack of knowledge of HIS job.

    This office messed my name up after I got married and changed it (the dropped my middle name). The only way to fix their mistake was to send/drop off my drivers license. So after a week without my drivers license, I get a piece of mail saying my documents have been returned and are in the same envelope. No license or my original social security card with my full name. Turns out the office LOST both documents. And when I try to call to deal with it, I get the same worker that just transfers me to someoneu2019s voicemail that never calls back.

    Person who answered the phone was rude and short. Didn't give enough information and acted put out to have to help me. They have failed to keep records and send out needed information and letters. First said they had no record then turned around and said it was processed yesterday after I asked to speak to a supervisor.

    I'm kind of torn on how to rate this. My wife went to collect on her late father's Social Security they were due, and was told they needed an investigation and would get back to her. 4 Months later, we went back, and had it taken care of in an hour. We were told if you don't hear back within a month, the person dropped the ball, so come back.... this is the reason I chose to leave this review - to inform people of this, if they get the wrong person.

    The Rent a cop won't even let you talk to someone for help and info. So now I'm waiting in 102 degree weather talking to a worker on the phone in that very building. This is what's wrong with the new lake Charles office.
