  1. I’ve done everything I’ve filed, with FTC ,BBB, Credit Unions, debit companies, people who lie and use your email rant on Graiglist, Sittercare.com,care.com that lie, and are alcoholics taking of senior you love and care about I give up

  2. will collect next year, sad that Congress raids the SS accounts and TSP G funds etc., stop the spending, cuts costs , not SS, SS needs to stop the limit on earnings or 15.7k (2015), many cannot survive on just SS, stop illegal Immigrants from accessing SS, it is for us citizens , without SS we cannot survive, tell Congress to increase SS for under 65 yrs old.

    • Illegal immigrants do NOT receive Social Security or SSI benefits because people have been required to show proof they are U.S. citizens or legally in the U.S. for many years. In fact, many pay FICA taxes but are unable to collect benefits.

    • Of course, there will be! As an experienced SSA employee told me over 40 years ago, the whole country would have to collapse before the government could stop paying benefits. Congress will eventually make changes so benefits continue.

  3. I need help from the Deputy Commissioner. My local office will not respond to my reconsideration letters and have blocked me from accessing their SS website. I’ve been fighting to have my benefits to be reinstated for 5 years now, And a Federal Court Judge dismissed any claims made against me. Look I really need your help. I was threatened by them before and I cannot go through that again. Sincerely, Amanda

  4. I served 45 years in serving the United States and now am getting messed over by the United States. I served 25 years in the military and 20 years in civil service. I have ran into 2 very bad situations I do not think is right. After serving and paying Social Security over those 45 years the Social Security rules say unless my wife is a United States Citizen she cannot claim from my Social Security. I think I earned it and my wife should be able to claim it when she turns 65.There are others that have not served and wives have not worked at all and are allowed to draw on their husbands Social Security. Would you please help me with this?

    My second request I am requesting help with is my wife will be able to claim the military SBP but the draw back is Social Security will take out 30% tax on it. I think that is a big exuberant, don’t you.

    Thank you very much for any help you can give me!!

  5. I think this is a great idea, because it seems so simple – the best thing is when you are in control of your financial future, and that includes small things like this. While you may not be able to control exactly what happens in the future you can put plans in place and stay in control. If it just takes a few minutes I will certainly be doing this.

    • Sophia, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us! We appreciate you using our online services and we look forward to serving you and the American public in the years to come.

  6. I was talking with a friend today who said I should be getting two thirds of my husbands ss check rather than my own. Is this true, am I entitled to two thirds of my husbands as if it is more than what I am getting? I have been paying as for over sixty years and my husband way more than that.

  7. I have tried to log in several times and even though I am retired and on SSI it does not recognize me. What do I have to do now?

    • Hi, Joseph. We are sorry if you’re having difficulty with your personal my Social Security account. For assistance, please call 1-800-772-1213. After you hear “Briefly tell me why you are calling,” say “Help Desk” for help with a my Social Security account. You can also visit our Frequently Asked Questions to read information on why you may be unable to create or to access your account. We hope this helps!

  8. I too am having trouble with the website. Today at the SSA office they helped and I got right in on their computer, but as soon as I tried at home CANNOT ACCESS this page!! Please fix this problem or close this problematic website. Have been trying for 2 months.

  9. When you call Social Security if they don’t like your question they put you on hold for another 10 minutes. Then if they still don’t like your question they put you on hold again. I’ve sat on hold for almost 2 hours today. Then the representative said they fixed the problem but he didn’t. Then when I had to call back again and requested the same help I was hung up on. Is there no Customer Service agents left to help customers in need???? The answer is no! And to your question, “Did she ever get the help she needed?” The answer is NO! She is still waiting on hold for her answer to her simple question.
