    I visited the San Marcos office on Monday, July 2, 2018. The guard at the entrance did a nice job of identifying those with appointments and processing all others. Once inside, it was a quick process to talk with an agent who determined the reason for your visit and direct you to the person who could help you. I was called within a few minutes and helped by Brett who was efficient, knowledgeable and very helpful. The experience exceeded my expectations and I wanted to commend the office on the overall experience.

    I paid a visit to the San Marcos office to submit the certified death certificate for my husband and it went so quickly to have the clerk xerox for a copy and return the original to me. I was pleasantly surprised that everything went so quickly. Kudos to the San Marcos office. It’s a well run department.

    Very positive experience at the San Marcos. I did not have an appointment, but the wait time was tolerable, not lengthy at all. All is organized, especially the calling for clients system. Jerome at my window was friendly and handled my paperwork efficiently. I was out of there a “happy camper “.
