I’m not even getting started, and already dealing with “The” Social Security office is a pain in the “________”. Call it what you want. Why does it seem everything connected with the government, especially “online”, is marked with difficulty. That wasn’t a question. Seems like nothing works smoothly or how it should.
I went to set up a “My Social Security” account; entered all the personal information, gave myself a username and password……….then got a message: “There is already an account set up for this user”, not username, but personal information. So, I attempted to sign in! I filled in a few questions to retrieve my username; to be sent to my email. I was ask 3 simple questions: What is my email address, my SS number and my date of birth. All questions of which I know the answer. Right! I got an immediate “Please correct this information” response. Really???/%#&#!!!!
First of all, if I did in fact in the past set up this account, the only email address I would have had at the time is the one I inserted here. Guess what, I know my own SS number and I think I know my correct birth date. This should be about the easiest line of questions I should be able to answer and that THIS agency should be able to confirm. NOW I GET TO VISIT THE SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE. No problem, its been awhile.
Many years ago, I had to correct the year I was born with SS. I thought, maybe they still have it wrong, so I inserted that year in and tried that……..NOPE!
Good luck y’all. Have a great day!
