I was working in the USA between the years of 1997 to 2001 paying all my taxes, pension and medicare during that time. My surprise was that since I haven't completed 10 years working in the USA, my pension or aid cannot be granted and all the money I pay goes to the USA. USA do not return the money paid for the pension or medicare. Now my question is how much is the total number of workers who are in my situation and how much are the millions of dollars that the USA pockets. The other surprise is that the agreement that supposedly has with Canada does not influence anything so that the pension is calculated based on the existing agreement. In other words, it's all political straw. If you read this review take your precautions because none of the money paid by you will be returned if you work legally in the USA.
I walked all the way down to the office and arrived promptly before 3:00 and it was closed due to Covid 19 I presume. RUDE. I need my SSI $2,442. in my JP Morgan chase account as I' am struggling. I have negative $72 in my JP Morgan chase and zero dollars in my credit union. I faxed in the documents Feb 4th and the 18th. Along with a letter of appeal.

My wife applied Medicare on Jan 4th. She is still waiting. I don’t know why it takes so long for the Medicare. This kind of process should be computerized and automatic already. We really wastes our tax money for the bureaucracy。
Original documents are being sent through regular mail without any form of tracking them. My originals are lost and they are refusing to replace or take accountability. They are blaming the post office and I was told I should have requested my documents be sent through secure mail and paid for it (I sent it through certified mail, but they don’t even have a tracking code). This is completely unacceptable.
It literally says on the faq page on the SSA page if calling to schedule, reschedule or cancel an appointment to call that number.... A girl named Felicia answered and said that they don't handle scheduling appointments. I pointed that out to her and I asked "what are you guys used for then?" And she hanged up on me... The incompetence and unprofessionalism in the place is unreal! Nightmare to deal with these people within our own government.
Rejected my elderly mother's benefits case because they could not find the raised stamp on her certified marriage license. Nightmare-level incompetence, utter morons. They don't return calls. Cost hundreds of dollars and hours of time and failed attempts at contacting to fix.
Robots are fine but cannot respond personally besides having ghoulish voices in providing security codes. My problem: no social security card, long gone. Replacement cannot be done online. Go to your office. My offices (Phoenix AZ) are all closed due to the pandemic. Catch 22 is do this but you cannot do it. And the process obfuscating, confusing, annoying. Is this our government in action? I fear it is. It's not even worth one star.
My husband was diagnosed with an advanced melanoma of the skin. Las Vegas, Nevada-Social Security worked very fast to approve him, but he died 13 days ago. There was some pay given that he was entitled to. They are an absolutely compassionate group! If you are truly unable to work due to a disability, Social Security will work hard to take care of your needs. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for the speedy way my husband's case was handled.
After a really bad stroke the hospital filed on my behalf. Judge approved me Nov. 2020. The review board picked up my case, months later another hearing, with judge approved again and I still can't get no help from these people.
I called this place so many time because it is where I drop off my document for a name correction. I called and verify the right document. Send it in and got a mail from them saying that they got the document and will verify it. And will take up to 4 weeks. It's been a month and a half and still nothing so I called and the man I was talking to his name is Carl or Carlos said the only document he sees is the one from April. I had to send in my document twice because they made a mistake the first time. For real...Carl or Carlos said he will call me back the next day and he will look for my file but nope never did.
I called again and I know for sure same old Carl or Carlos was the person again. Same voice people I know. He asked me the same questions. I ask me if I send in the right document and I said I did and I also verify with someone in the office by phone. Than he told me he works at the Madera office and he doesn't know. I ask if him is there someone there or a supervisor I can talk to and then he hang up. Super unprofessional and I hope he get fired! I called again and the machine said the all representive are busy at this time and to call again later. I cannot afford to keep having to send in my documents again and agin because of their laziness and bad workers. Those are important documents not copies but original and I need them!
