"I came here without an appointment I didn't wait long about 30-45 minutes. Much to my surprise. I was quick in and out the staff were friendly and courteous. This was a very good office. I didn't find anything wrong with it even the bathroom was clean."

"For a government entity, they are highly inefficient with sensitive documentation, they frequently misplace paperwork and claim they never received said paperwork to begin with. (Even the actual Security officers made verbal note of this) They have filthy air filters and a barely functioning AC unit for being located in a desert. They can get it fixed. They are also poorly staffed. \n\nWhether its incompetency, or mismanagement, the staff needs replacing, training or additional oversight."

"The absolute worst service I have ever experienced in 22 years of being a federal employee. You can't even get inside a publicly owned federal building. They made each person stand outside in 100 degree temperatures and wait to be served. No shade, no water, and no representative other than a Guard that would call for the next person. I will be filing a grievance with my congressman over this."
Jack DeYoung - June, 2017
Navigating the Social Security Office during COVID-19
Today, applying for Social Security benefits or a card can usually be handled online or by phone, without
needing to make an appointment at your local Social Security office. We break down the answers to some of the
most frequently asked questions around navigating Social Security from home.
Which Social Security benefits am I eligible for?
Your Social Security income is made up of 3 potential benefits. Your earned benefit, your spousal
benefit and your survivor benefit. The eligibility for each of these benefits depends on a number of
factors including your income, marital status, and length of marriage.
Find out the benefits you are eligible for and what your income with our 2-minute quiz.
For most people applying for benefits, you can apply online or over the phone, and skip going to the office altogether. Use a checklist to ensure you have all the information and documentation you need to apply.
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.
Our guide on Social Security survivors benefits helps to navigate your options in order to make the most of what you are owed after a death.
If your Social Security card is lost or stolen, you can get a replacement card free of charge.
Log into—or create an account on —
My Social Security,
and you can apply directly there. However, you will need to provide original documentation in order to create an account.
Our guide explains what you need to replace the card.
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.
