"I have heard horror stories about the waits and lines. Did not experience any craziness. Didn't have an appointment but was still able to be in and out in about 45 minutes. The security staff were friendly and had great attitudes and Arnie our field officer was polite, courteous and efficient. We did get in line a little before they opened at 9 which I suggest doing if you can. All in all, very positive experience."

"The outside line leads to an inside wait. Expect to be here for about three hrs OR call and schedule an appointment."

"I recieved Excellent service when I went through my disability a few years back!\nThen I went back to work full time and messed up my benefits! Two years later & I will be going back in in worse shape than i was! I keep putting it off because i really wanted to be able to work & not be disabled! I am grateful for this program and the people who are doing their job!"

"Security guard very rude. Wouldn't let my son , who I had picked up from work to go with me, because he had his Constructuon clothes on and told him he had to wait outside. He was very rude to me and when I got my ticket number, there weren't any vacant chairs left , so I was standing by the wall and he told me I couldn't stand , I told him there weren't any chairs left and he said well you can't stand. An elderly man offered to sit on the floor and he told him that he couldn't sit on the floor. I asked him how long the wait was, and he told me a minimum of 2 hours. A very nice couple said they had been there 3 hours and there was still 15 people in front of her. I told him I would have to leave and come back another day, and he got upset and told me that I had wasted his time going thru security if I wasn't staying. \nI have never been treated so rudely in a government building. Earlier I had been at the court house and security was very friendly and fast I had gone to department of licensing and very friendly, was surprised to see so much security at the Yakima social security office and have the security guard so high on themselves that they treat you like you are some kind of outlaw. If I had gotten the arrogant, rude guards name, i would report him. I came home, waited an hour on the phone and was treated so nice and professional. I told him about my experience and he couldn't believe that a guard could be so rude."
