Q) I am trying to check the status of my sons Social Security card Every time I call and stay on hold for 40 minutes I get hung up on I cannot get through to the office and it’s been approximately 3 to 4 months that I have been waiting for his card
A) If you are having difficulty reaching the Social Security Administration (SSA) to check the status of your son’s Social Security card, there are a few steps you can try to get in touch with them:
Visit the SSA website: The SSA website has a wealth of information and resources available online, including information on how to apply for a Social Security card, what documents you need to provide, and how long it typically takes to process a request.
Call the SSA toll-free number: The SSA provides a toll-free number (1-800-772-1213) that you can call for assistance with your claim. Try calling during off-peak hours when call volume is lower.
Contact your local Social Security office: If you are unable to reach the SSA by phone, you may want to visit your local Social Security office in person. You can find the address and hours of operation for your local office on the SSA website.
Check the status online: You may be able to check the status of your son’s Social Security card request online using the SSA’s “my Social Security” account. You will need to create an account if you do not already have one.
If you continue to have trouble reaching the SSA, you may want to consider reaching out to your elected representative for assistance. They may be able to help you get in touch with the SSA and expedite the processing of your son’s Social Security card request.
