Post #1 of 8
My husband and I live outside Xalapa in Veracruz. We would like to apply for our social security. When I went to the online official government site, it said we couldn't do it online from MExico, but would have to go to the Mexican Embassy. They gave an office which no longer seems to exist. We have emailed and called and been told that we can only speak to someone between 7 and 8 in the morning or between 3 and 4 in the afternoon. We have tried these ours multiple times, have only gotten message machines on which we have left messages, and have not gotten callbacks. My husband finally lost his temper at the live operator at the Embassy who told him he wasn't responsible. He wouldn't direct him to a live person.
We use my stepson's mailing address in California for our US mailing address. Would it be legal, does anyone know, to use this for our social security address?
And has anyone figured out another way to do it here in Mexico?
Many thanks ahead of time for any help you can offer.
