"I helped my wife apply for Medicare Part A benefits via SSA online back in November 7, 2019. She received a letter from the Birmingham WSU office requesting additional information which she provided in November. We have heard nothing since we provided that information to Birmingham SSA in November - complete silence. Called the main SSA number. They told us that saw the letter sent to us requesting more information - but could not help her. Called the Birmingham WSU office provided by the SSA rep. The phone rang for 45 minutes and no-one answered. What is going on? It has been over 3 months to get the application reviewed. Why isn't our medicare enrollment issue being handle by our local SSA office in Washington PA?"

"We went here to get a SSN denial letter (used for applying for a driver license). The staffs were friendly enough (expecting retail-customer-service level here is probably unreasonable). Got in and out after a bit more than 1 hour. The official even helped us to clear the name discrepancy due to form I-94 error."

"I have been trying to make a payment with this place since November of 2017. I have contacted them on numerous occasions. They NEVER ANSWER. I wish I could go to my local social security office in GA. Much more professional, and efficient. I contacted my local social security office complaining about this place. They tried transferring my call here and They couldn't even get through! Anyone working here needs to be fired. Plain lazy if you ask me. Yet, I am getting letters in the mail saying make a payment. I WOULD IF YOU ANSWERED THE PHONE!"

"I was provided a number to call to make payment for overpayment for SSI. But no one has answered. And I keep receiving letter about garnishing and threats about payment. I would love to pay but I can. Whenever you call it rings twice and then waiting music. And then automatic system say representatives are busy, try again later. And when I do, same thing hi happens again"
Jennifer Flambert - June, 2019
"Have been calling for 3 days to try and make an overpayment payment by telephone, each call says to call during normal business hours which i do and they never pick up the phone, the machine keeps saying all reps are busy which doesn't make sense when you've been calling over 13 times without ever speaking to anyone in the 3 days. If you want us to make our payments then maybe set up a better system to do so!!!!!!! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!!!"

How do I report a death?

Funeral homes typically handle reporting of a death to the SSA. However, you will need to provide the funeral home with the deceased’s Social Security number for them to do so. Note that deaths cannot be reported online. If you want to report the person’s death yourself, call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. You also visit your local Social Security office in person.

What should I do if I get a call from a potential Social Security scammer?

Scam calls from Social Security have increased, particularly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These fraudsters might claim there is a problem with your Social Security account, benefits, or number. They will often solicit or demand some form of payment in exchange for resolving the problem.
If you receive a questionable call, hang up and immediately report the call directly to the Office of the Social Security Inspector General. As new scams emerge every day, it’s critical to stay informed of the latest scams in order to keep yourself and your finances safe online.
