"Very nice people working here wait time depends on how many are before you. Love SSI 'Ticket Back To Work Program' great for any handicap who wants more out of life than sitting around."
Tammy L. Carr - August, 2018
"This is the first time in my 37 odd years of visiting any Social Security office in California that I can truthfully report of having had a great experience. The building is clean and the staff are pleasant and relaxed. There was absolutely no waiting time whatsoever. I don't know why the machine to vend queing tickets is there at all. I am just floored at how exceptionally well run that place really is."
Darren Jay Blagden - August, 2016
"I recently (4/3/2018) had a need to go to our Social Security Administration office in Crescent City,(just became of age)… what a beautiful building. Easy to locate and well thought out parking. As I approached the entrance, I noticed it had a double entry door system…just like seen in newer Banks. Finally in the main entrance, there was a security guy that greeted me, he had Black latex gloves on and was packing some heat…looked to be a Glock 20 (40 S&W), possibly 3rd generation, I didn’t ask…Anyway, security guy was NOT your run of the mill…he was and is the real-deal…he asked; do you have any firearms? Answer NO, do you have any knives? Answer YES…his response; please secure them in your vehicle sir, thank you…\n\nAfter securing my Swiss Army pocket knife and Leatherman Wave multi-tool, I returned and was instructed to login by using a very easy to read and use Kiosk. The Kiosk spit out a number (just like DMV) and I sat down and faced an informative flat screen that displayed a lot of things I didn’t know about at Social Security Administration…I learned a lot and made several notes so to research later…. I skipped the weather report, it is what it is.\n\nWhen it was my turn to be helped, I was summoned by my first name and not my number (C249)…how refreshing! I was greeted by a smiling 30ish young lady (with no name tag) that made me feel very comfortable from the get-go…genuine smiles get me every time… this young representative knew everything! She guided me through the maze of options and confusion in such a way that anyone could understand and… make informed decisions. There was even a glitch with my birth-certificate…not to worry…she navigated her Computer like a programmer and resolved that issue. Next thing I know she says; you’re all set!\n\nThis young lady displayed unparalleled professionalism, empathy and respect like I never seen before…She did provide her first name when asked, but I respect her position and will not put it here.\n\nThe security guy?...As I exited, I asked if he was local law enforcement, his response, no sir, Homeland Security…My response; very impressive and professional…his response, thank you sir.\n\nBottom line...5-star rating, I had a wonderful experience.\n\nTIP...Always bring you’re official Birth Certificate with you!\n\nBrian from Brookings"

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.
