Social Security Administration

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that administers Social Security, a social insurance program consisting of retirement, disability, and survivors' benefits. To qualify for these benefits, most American workers pay Social Security taxes on their earnings; future benefits are based on the employees' contributions. (Source: Wikipedia)

Perhaps you are working for the SSA or interested in working for the SSA. Here is a forum to share your experience with the SSA.

I did not apply for NY, I applied for southern jersey and have multiple friends that applied for NY. We all got the same generic email basically saying we were not selected at this time etc. We're assuming it's due to the hiring freeze placed on SSA expected to continue throughout FY17.

Hi HippieManStan - the thing is, I also received a letter saying that I was found fully qualified and my name would be passed to the employing agency for consideration. It didn't say I wasn't selected, it said I was referred. Do you think this means anything?

Hi upstateny, I too received the same message on Friday. I'm very confused. I think we are moving in to the next stage, but I'm not 100 %.

I am a little wary of hope, but it seems like we are. I have heard that they occasionally do 2 rounds of hiring. I know some offices have reported to be under a hiring freeze but I do not believe this is country-wide for all offices, or if it is, perhaps the upstate offices have just now been approved to hire additional people before the new fiscal year?

It seems odd that others would have received notices saying they were not selected but we got referrals if we are NOT being moved to the next stage - but then again, I have no idea!

I am hopeful. I would think we would get a notice similar to those in other post about not selected but made it thru panel and etc. They can select up to 6 months from closing date. Crossing my fingers and toes.

When would hiring process for FY17 begin? At about the same time of the year this year did? I get to have my supervisors bugged again, yay! lol

Has anyone tried to call the number listed on the job posting for more information? I have tried to reach a person there, but just got an automated message saying that they would not give status updates on applications. I'm not even looking for a status update so much as an explanation as to why I received an NOR when I know the office I applied for has already hired their people - basically I just want to know if that office is even hiring more people, or if this is just a delayed bit of paperwork that doesn't actually represent a possible job opening.

Has anyone else tried to reach HR, or had any luck getting more information?
