"Wanting to avoid the Fairfax office where my husband waited 2 hours outside and 1.5 hours inside, I went to the Culpepper Office. I waited 1.5 hours inside. The employee that helped me was kind, patient and helpful. She said there were only 3 employees that work at that office and wait time has increased since folks are avoiding the Fairfax and Manassas SS Officies. I arrived at 12 noon, so, I am guessing, the employees took turns with lunch which may have added to the wait time. One issue that arrises is trying to make an appointment. She said, one of my issues, would need an appointment but SS only makes appointments 60 days out. After checking the Fairfax Office where I would need to go, all the appointments were taken and she would put my name on a waiting list. Now I am hoping and praying I will get called or emailed when an appointment opens. I was able to sign up for SS for myself on the website at home that appeared to be easy."

"I came all the way out to Culpeper to avoid the office in Manassas, since I read how horrible people are treated in Manassas. \n\nThese ladies, at Culpeper, were super fast, personable and top notch. I was in and out in just a few minutes. \n\nIt was raining heavily so maybe that kept the wait time down but they were fast and caring. \n\nThere is street parking but also a parking lot right behind the building for bigger vehicles."

"We waited from 1:20 to 3:10 to be helped- the entire building was FILLED when we first arrived patiently waited until us and a gentleman were the only ones who weâ€™re still waiting 5-6 people came in after everyone else had left. After asking the security guard why no one was being called for 40 minutes he said it was due to only certain employees being able to certain things. Turns out FIVE out of the 6 employees working went to lunch. 2 other people were still called before us. Never coming to this location again (the lady who handled my replacement was very very nice and polite)"
