"I recently came here to get some paperwork sorted out, and Mr. Tín and Mrs. Kim were both very friendly and helpful. They worked quickly and knew exactly what to do. I was extremely pleased with their service. Thank you so much for your help, Mr. Tín and Mrs. Kim!"

"WOW the customer service I got from Mr. Chung was unbelievable! He was rude, arrogant, and extremely condescending. There’s two signs in particular that was a bit confusing. From the outside, there’s a sign indicating to wait here for non-appointment so I hesitated to pass that line to enter the office. When I did enter, there’s another sign indicating to take a ticket & go to window #5 & #6. It’s my first time coming here so I wasn’t sure which sign was for appointment vs non-appointment. When I was outside a nice lady pointed to the ticket machine. As I was getting my ticket, I heard a loud conversation between a man & a security guard complaining why everyone can’t read the signs. Unfortunately I walked pass that sign after getting my ticket and started looking straight up at the number monitor like if I was at the DMV (lol). Unfortunately Mr. Chung was watching me the entire time & decided to approach me in a very aggressive manner. In his loud tone he paraded me in front of everyone to ask MA’AM, WHAT DOES THE SIGN SAYS?!!! He then rolled his eyes at me & mocked me to the security guard as he walked me to window #5 for screening. I was completely mortified & shocked at his poor behavior. It was not only uncalled for but extremely unprofessional. Not sure why he treated me this way. Maybe bc he was having a bad day & was taking it out on someone or maybe I was an easy target for him. Who knows?! All I can say is PLEASE PLEASE take another job if you can’t deal with people in a respectful ways. As for the gal who assisted me when my number was called I want to say THANK YOU for being so sweet & helpful."

"Majority of staff is great and knowledgeable, but some are plain racist, rude, and arrogant. If someone is smoking pot in front of the office, they don't do anything. But if someone clearly disabled ask a simple question, they almost beat him/her up. This particular office needs improvement."

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.
