Have made multiple calls over two plus months and one visit to the Columbia District Office. No one ever called back with a response to my question as stated by a representative. Decided to try one more time today before going outside SSA for assistance. Contact person was Ms. Brunner and she was superb. Had the technical knowledge to address my question and took action on the information I provided. A truly outstanding employee and deserves recognition. Can't say enough about her technical knowledge and professionalism.

Security Guard Officer at the entrance name Marion (African American) that worked on 4/03/19 at 9:30 am was very rude and disrespectful. She took 15 mins On searching me while my shoes were off the entire time on the cold dirty floor. I was so irritated with her. Before I was free to put my shoes and grab my items I asked her what was her name so I could report her about my experience.please speak with her on this matter. I’m very disappointed

I drove to SS office in Columbia, SC during my lunch hour to get my name changed on my SS card after getting married. I had difficulty finding parking and finally drove up 4 flights in a parking building before finding a unreserved spot to park. After walking through traffic to the SS bldg, going through the security scan, up the elevators to the office, I fund approximently 100 people all sitting, waiting to be seen, in a small room, so standing outside the room. The security guard told me all had signed in and were waiting to be seen. He said I could make an appt online. I am on this site now, still looking to find out how to do that, after 15min I still have not found it. And the parking bldg charged me $8 for the 15 mins I was there. Definitely not a nice experience. Please give me specific instruction as to how to make an appt online.
