"I am so relieved that I went to the Gilroy SSA office. I've been there twice recently and I've been there last year also. Each time has been a positive experience. This time I had a very complicated issue that could easily have been brushed aside as it was elsewhere. However; the employee that served me took my problem on and promised to look into it. And she did! A few days later she phoned me and told me everything is corrected and resolved. Thank you! I would send flowers, but thought it better to do this public review. Five Stars for courtesy, attention, professionalism and follow through. And another five stars for the security officer who greeted everyone equally and was helpful and friendly."

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.
