Remove Language of check your application status in 5 days

This misleads the public into having the perception that online application for medicare and retirement could be processed in 5 days. Many actually call the field office, and the national 800 # after the 5 days thinking that their application should have been completed. This language needs to be removed, and language explaining more actual time lines needs to be added.

Email support and customer service

To contact a social security representative, my only options are to write, visit, or call my nearest office. Email support should be another option. Sometimes the wait time over the phone and in person at the SSA office and take too long and be a huge inconvenience.
