    Glad I live in Scranton. Their office is so much more effecient than calling the Federal office, not to mention they answered my call in 15 minutes. Talked to a rep named Mike – very nice, helpful & effecient. Will keep the Scranton phone number saved. Really GREAT PEOPLE !

      I have been trying to call you for the last 2 weeks, and the only message I get is due to call volume we are unable to answer your phone. How do I get through if no one answers?

    I was on the phone with Social Security yesterday for 45 minutes, and basically got no answer. I called the local Scranton office, and a very nice woman (did not get her name) told me that I could come down with my documents and they could print what I need right away. She also told me where I could park. Very helpful!!! Now I know to call the local office.
