    My dad is getting very frustrated just trying to schedule an appointment because of the long wait times on the phone. He left a message and didn’t get a response. If he goes in person, can someone schedule an appointment for him?

  2. Freddie B.

    Can you file a power of attorney with Social Security online? If not, what is the easiest way to accomplish this task?

    I quickly need a Social Security card replacement

    Why can’t I view my statement 24 hours/day? I just tried logging into my account and a window pops up saying the service isn’t offered at this time and that I need to try again during your “service hours”.
    What is the point of having on-line access if I can’t access it any time I want? Like at 10:35pm west coast time on a Sunday?

    why can you not apply for a social secuity account if you live outside the country ?

  6. AJ

    I tried for years to get back on line with out any success, I was told by SSA personnel if you do not use site often enough they drop your ability to gain access. Seems counterproductive to me, i thought idea was to reduce call ins and people at local offices?

    I would like to request a replacement social security card

    I have previously created an account, however now when I sign in the message is no account create a new one. I create a new one and it tells me I have an account, then directs me to a page to log in with a message that I do not have an account and I should create a new one. This is a circle with no end – what do I do?

      I have the same problem several times.
      I had to go into a local ss office show my identy (lisc) and they corrected it and gave me temp pw then i had to go in to redo to a pw I choose. I wrote a message on their survey. it is a problem glitch i’m not happy about either.
      ps any time you create a new pword you will see the expir. date- you must create a new pw before it expires.
