"Just received disability around February 3, 2020 and my first notice had me approved but received $0.00 on further looking at the notice it had my twin brother and his address on the page.\nSo I went to the Albany office were I was told I was getting $2.00 because of my worker’s compensation payments.\nMe thinking something was wrong with me getting my brother information something else had to be wrong.\nSo my second visit to the Albany office is when it gets crazy I was told that they calculate my payments and I was told I make double of what I get from Workers competition. When I tried to explain I was told that the computer calculates the payments and that I get paid sometime 3 times a month. They also refused to look at my paperwork saying that they already got it from Workers comp.\n\nAfter feeling that this Albany office it not willing to listen or take their time to look into people issues I decided to go to the Hudson, Ny office..\nGlad I did because the worker and a supervisor was more than happy to look into my complaint and they noticed that my workers comp payments was being Calculate twice. \nBut now the Albany office is in control of the recalculation and is requesting the Workmen’s Comp. paperwork from my attorney after already having it.\nNow I have to wait up to 60 days for them to \ndo what?\nI would like to speak with the The director of the (Albany) office. \nBecause this needs to be Expedited.."

"Went recently to get a replacement card for my daughter. Wait time was long because of the number of people. Once my number was called it was very quick. I only needed my daughter's school ID and/or her current health insurance card plus my own photo ID. I also needed her birth certificate to change some information, but that was not needed to get the replacement card."

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.
