"Great experience. Arrived at 8:45am. About 15 people ahead of me in line outside. The doors opened at 8:55 with instructions of how to proceed. Checked in got a number and was out by 9:18! The electric screen keeps you aware of how soon you’d be seen. Great process! When I left there was no line. You would have walked right in. \nEveryone, people in line and workers, were all friendly and helpful."

"I visited this Social Security office on March 9 and I received the most amazing customer service in any government agency ever. I made an appointment and was called promptly when my appointment time was scheduled. Lexa P, the amazing officer provided me and my wife with incredible support and her coworker Melissa assisted with our Medicare cancellation by talking with our insurance company insuring that by cancelling Medicare we would have no issues under our insurance policy. Lexa P completed our cancellation and also my initial request for spousal social security expeditiously and provided the utmost customer service. My social security check was deposited into my account 3 working days later. This is the customer service support we all want and need and Lexa and Melissa deserve recognition for their extra effort to help those navigating these process. Thank you,\nEd"

"Really amazed at the speed of service. I arrived 15 minutes before they opened and the line was already extremely long out the door. Yet they were taking people in already and getting them signed in. I only waited maybe half an hour before my number was called and then it only took a couple minutes to do what I needed."

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.
