"I am use to being in the social security office for hours on end but today I went in and came right out 20-25 mins late. I was grateful for Mr.Williams who was very understanding, kind and patient with me. Being 8 months pregnant, I’m often pressure to hurry up and move faster. However, I was so very glad that he didn’t rush me, force me to hurry or make me feel bad about my speed and comprehension. I am grateful for that Chicago heights location."

"Going into any government office is not my idea of a good time. But I was especially dreading this place because of the previous reviews. I needed a new social security card after getting married. I didn't have to wait more than an hour and had the pleasure of working with Mr. Washington. He was professional, pleasant and obviously very competent at his job. I appreciate the stellar service!"

Thank you for taking good care of my needs as a payee. Keep up the good work seems some of us always just want to complain, tear down others& play the role of the victim constantly????"

"I received excellent service. I didn't mind the wait. Because its for me. The service that was rendered was very informative. I was applying for my social security benefits. The customer service rep. Had patience and was open to my question and concerns. People should realize that we live in a large Metropolitan City. And the office has to service over a hundred people a day. Being angry don't make the Wait shorter or pleasant for you."

What should I do if I get a call from a potential Social Security scammer?

Scam calls from Social Security have increased, particularly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These fraudsters might claim there is a problem with your Social Security account, benefits, or number. They will often solicit or demand some form of payment in exchange for resolving the problem.
If you receive a questionable call, hang up and immediately report the call directly to the Office of the Social Security Inspector General. As new scams emerge every day, it’s critical to stay informed of the latest scams in order to keep yourself and your finances safe online.
