    Dear Sirs and Madams,
    Your system’s automated security questions contain information that doesn’t match any of my home’s documented “Credit Reports”. So for the past three years, my wife has been unable to create her own “My Social Security” online account.

    And all messages sent to your staff requesting their help, made through my own existing online account, have yet to receive any reply.

    Because she’s about to become enrolled in “Medicare” (on her 65th birthday; less than nine months from today): My wife is now left with no other choice, than to submit her retirement claim form to your department the old fashioned way–via USPS hand-delivered mail.

    But what’s been most frustrating about my trying to help my spouse sign-up, herself (using your alleged “15-Minute Enrollment Process”), has been the fact that it’s now been broken for more than THREE YEARS!

    And we’ll never be able to match our proper answers to any of your asked “Security Questions”; As long as your staff keeps relying upon their own mistakes, to compare them.

    So you might want to think about beginning a process that will allow your clients to contest any “Credit Report” errors being used by your own department.
    (Similar to what they’re now allowed to do; Through those other agencies, that actually created those original reports).

    Respectfully Yours,
    Bruce Robert Hammill

    The 1.6% helps “somewhat”. I live in a Retirement Mobil Home Park and the space rental increases by 3% every year. That 1.6% only covers a little over half of the increase. I think we need some help for the other 1.4%.

    Through the years I’ve used dozens of dating websites of various kinds. In my reviews and blog posts, I am more than happy to share all my experience and insights I’ve accumulated. Read more reviews.

    I have prolly called at least 5 times trying to get them to help with an online account. Every person I talk to gives me different reasons, dates, when I can apply, some say 9 months some say 4 months one said 3, and just yesterday I was told I can’t even make an appointment now, cause it will take a month, so according to them I will be able to apply for SS. I have called Experian, as they directed, as that was one of the reasons I was told I can’t create a log in. I give up!!
