Today marks three months from the day that I'll turn 65 (Nov. 20). So I decided to call the Social Security Administration to make sure I'm taking all the steps to let them know that I want supplemental insurance if/when I retire (no current plans to do so in near future). After a brief trip through phone tree, I reached an automated voice who told me that the early morning hours and the first of the week are the heaviest times for Social Security calls -- and that no one was available to take mine. Thus, begins my trip into that netherworld of Senior Citizenship. I won't go softly into that good netherworld of aging.
Question: Anyone out there have trouble getting ahold of Social Security?
