Your 1-800-772-1213, is no good. My wife has tried calling it several times this past week, only to be put on hold over a hour twice, she finally gave up. This sucks and is totally unsat, only 1 number for thousands of people trying to contact you. Why can't you call a local office and make a appointment?

Want to call and talk to someone regarding continuing to work and drawing my Social Security. Is there some I can ask without taking time off from work to come in?
Thank you

The number for the Bellingham office either rings busy or stated it is unavailable strange since it was active before. Been trying to change direct deposit information. No response to email sent to main address. Frustrating and scary

I have been trying to contact the Bellingham office on Alabama St. and the telephone number given is unavailable from Canada.
Reason: change of address notification regarding benefits - rather annoying.

My benefits keep being reduced at a crippling rate. I have written but received no response. The wait time is 50 minutes for phone call. I would like to make an appointment at the Bellingham office to come talk about this. Please email me.

I have been trying to call the Bellingham office from Canada to set up an appt. The toll free numbers don't work from here. Although the Canadian system applied for me, I still need to come in, it's really frustrating to be unable to set up this appt.

I started an application in March 2014, and later cancelled the application until now. But, I can't get on the online application, it keeps saying sorry. I am ready to apply NOW. Can someone please call me and let me know what is going on as soon as possible. My work phone is 250-382-5131 United States Customs and Border Protection, at Victoria Preclearance Canada, and my cell is 360-220-2393 and my home phone is 250-474-1296. Or email me a [email protected] preferably or [email protected] Please respond.
Thank you, Ria Hokanson

I had a phone appointment for 1000 on the 11th of July. This appointment was moved from the Wenatchee office. I gave them a new phone number so I am thinking they did not forward it to your office. 250 637 1456. Case number 573-70-9616.
