"I’m writing this review on the behalf of my dad. He visited this office to find assistance for his benefits without appointment and was directed to use the computer windows. He was directed to window #20 where a very helpful young man by the name of Mr.Cuevas was able to kindly guide him through and answer the many questions my dad had. My dad left feeling super appreciative. Thank you, Mr.Cuevas!"

"I've used this social security office to handle family affairs over the past 4 years. It's well kept and clean. Get there first thing in the morning if you are a walk in because it gets pretty busy and the parking is limited. There is a metro bus and a local shuttle (Flair Dr shuttle) that drop off on the corner across from the office. You can catch the shuttle at the Metrolink station. Keep in mind that some days have shorter hours. When you arrive you will have to check in at an automated kiosk. It has several languages available for check in. You will then wait to check in with a clerk to state your business. Lastly, have a seat and listen for your name to be called. There are nice bathrooms on-site. Special note: you cannot talk on phones or listen to them out loud in the waiting area. They are extremely strict with that rule. Take headphones and step outside to speak."

I've been in this office on numerous ocassions, both as a Walk-in, and a Client with a previously made Appt. My SSI paperwork has always been processed accurately and explained to me in a careful, thorough manner. For this i'm grateful! Thkx"

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.
