GetHuman-224797's review of Social Security customer service
GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Social Security customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
GetHuman-224797: Applied for new SSN for child. Received receipt saying * would come in * weeks, or to call them. Called this number* waited close to an hour for a real person* told that only the local office can handle a problem they created. No local number available on-line or on the "receipt," or from the bureaucrat. Typical government experience.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Social Security. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Social Security problem?
GetHuman-224797: I'd give them a four out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
GetHuman-224797: I'd give them a three out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Social Security's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
GetHuman-224797: For that I would say four out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Social Security customers?
GetHuman-224797: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Social Security to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from GetHuman-224797 taken from his Social Security customer service problem that occurred on November 22nd, 2017.
