    Like everyone elseu2019s experience with this place during the pandemic, I called nearly every day for months just to stay on the line for 2-3 hrs and then get the call dropped. Maybe they changed something in the new year because I called again earlier this month and someone answered within 15 minutes. The one who answered told me that I could get a replacement card by mailing in my application and documents (I have very limited documents compared to most people so I really tried to get an appointment but they refuse to give appointments for replacement cards, no exceptions). So I mailed my application last week, got it back with no replacement card. Just my application (crumpled and very ripped by the way) and my other documentation with NO explanation as to what I did wrong with the application, if anything. Donu2019t bother trying to get a replacement social security card here, itu2019s literally impossible.
    I had a horrible experience calling several local offices 1866-.. phone numbers - they were always busy! I decided to stop by this office near 161st in the Bronx and I'm sooo glad I did. Typically, you need to reserve an appointment so there's a chance you could be turn away! I brought my filled out application for the service I needed and the proper documentation for proof. The security guard in the lobby was friendly and the one by the office entrance was very patient and not under stress since there wasn't a large crowd. That helped a lot! The lady at the window was very professional and took care of me without a problem. Good luck to you and BE PREPARED before you go.

    The secretaries NEVER answer these phones NEVER its not right. They will turn the phone down or put u on hold for over an hour. They never ever pick up they will have u listen to a busy signal or silence. The secretaries are mean and they dont like to assist by phone. Not good at all. When i waited for my hearing to see a judge i noticed how the secretaries would get attitudes when the phones rang and ignored calls or hung up its not right. What are they getting paid for?? To be mean and grumpy?????

    Today, January 20, 2022, me and my wife have been trying to talk to a representative in order to make my baby's Social Security Card.nTwo people trying to get through for almost 2 hours now between waiting, being disconnected and try again. It is unbelievable how no one picks up the phone.

    The worse social security officer you go in person they wont accept you and tell you need an appointment. Then you call to make the freaking appointment but no body never picks up the phones and if they do they will wait for them to hear your voice and then cut the phone call.

    To make an appointment try to called at least 10 time every day after 2 weeks got one person. In my life I donu2019t have bad experiences like that. And also in this 2 weeks got 3 persons 2 time man and 1 time woman, I guess the man was the same person and both of them was super bad.nI think they need to replace by security.

    This office is the worst. They send you letters to call them with a deadline, I have been calling this office for days and no one answers just waiting on the phone for an hour then it hangs up. How can I get anything resolved when you canu2019t even speak to someone.

    Hi, Iu2019ve been trying to make an appointment for this Bronx location, for months. I need a replacement social security card. I know itu2019s only by appointments, so I have been patient, and respectful. The representatives, keep Directing me on a endless cycle of wrong numbers, in which I then, I give up. Months, maybe a year, of misdirection. Iu2019m definitely concerned and defeated. I would appreciate if anyone can help me, get through. Thank you. Stay safe, and God bless.

    I know itu2019s the pandemic but Horrible service for requesting a social security card replacement. Slow service and No one will answer the call. And takes a long time to speak with a representative.
    Juan Delacruz
    Worst place in the world, I went to apply for the social security and filled out all the documents, the person who assisted me on the offices told me that all documents were fine and that the social security supposed to be delivered in 7-10 days, after 3 weeks I called and they told me that my information is not on the system, they wasted my time and did not check the application, THE PERSON WHO ATTENDED ME DID NOT PROVIDED ME ANY RECEIPT NUMBER OR CONFIRMATION ABOUT THE CARD, IF YOU GO ASK FOR IT, BECAUSE THEY ARE PLAYING WITH THE PAPER AND NOT DOING THEIR JOB.

    I thought this is supposed to be a government office? I sent them my documents and I expected for them to sent it back to me safely but all I got was a TORN LETTER saying theyu2019re returning my documents but no documents in the package.

    I need new social security card for my kids I been calling for months no answer this is crazy over months. No appointment no phone answer they hang up phones. They need to be investigated. People need their cards.

    The office is still closed to the public, you must make an appointment prior to going there. Itu2019s so difficult to get an appointment. I had to call several times. Sometimes I waited for hours only for the phone to be disconnected and no one picked up. After getting an appointment itu2019s quick and easy I went in and was out within 5mins since I only had to update the information with my social security card.
    Edinson Ramirez
    You guys play with people time, worst place to call, hours and hours to set up an appointment and no body answer, thatu2019s unprofessional, when you go physically to the office they donu2019t allow you to get in or set an appointmentu2026..
    Sheila Jones
    I really hate this place you called they put you on hold and than hang up on you they have you in the office for hours something need to change Iu2019ve been calling because they wonu2019t give me a appointment they sent my brother a letter stating that my brothers Social Security Card will come in The mail that was February 14, 2022 we are now in March and we have yet to hear back from them

    I have been calling from 2 weeks to get an appointment for social security number but nobody answers the call. When I sent my documents through mail they returned it by saying you need a in office interview appointment, which I'm trying to get but nobody answers the call when somebody did took my call she was very rude and asked me to hold up for hours before hanging up. This is totally shameless behaviour.
    Just a heads up this is the only place that I know that handles lost social security cards in the Bronx area. It was a little difficult to find if going on #2 train, but once I was pointed in the right direction, it was okay. Got there and filled out form and I was out of the building, quickly.

    I called Social Security office and they made me wait on the phone for 15 minutes and then when I got connected they didn't answer my phone.

    It's hard to get a replacement card because the offices are still closed. Doing the phone and getting doctors' letters are hard for people to accomplish. There has to be a better solution to the problem. Thank you
    Thomas Conway
    It is December and I can't get a hold of anyone in the office. Been calling everyday since October 10th and nothing.

    Was in this office today to submit my naturalization certificate and reapply for new sss card and it went smooth. Thanks to ms miss coria who gave me the appointment and mr lizardo window 18. Within 15 minutes my transaction was done. Great staff from reception thru security guard. God Bless and be safe.

    I donu2019t like their new process over the phone. If they a government building they can set schedule appointments for visitors. Mailing it can be problem to, they can messed up and forget to send back you correct documents. I am go to see how this goes.
    I have been trying to reach them for days they let the phone ring and ring these are disabled people they are ignoring and this is their only income
    Stacy Zill
    i have been calling for days so i can schedule an appt for a replacement card. have waited on hold for over an hour each time before phone disconnects. it's you job and answer your phones.
    Just SlicedCheese
    I've been having a horrible time doing my case review this year and even though their office is to blame for mixing up my paperwork they are threatening to cut my only source of income. If I could give them a ZERO I definitely will.
