"Stopped by to grab an application for the 66 year old homeless man who lives behind my house. Apparently, you are expected to wait in a 40-minute line for a blank application. I guess nobody cares enough about customer service to make them available by the front door.\n\nUPDATE: Glad I didn't wait in line. I checked the SS website for a printable form for my homeless neighbor to fill out AND THERE ISN'T ONE, just an online application. I guess old homeless people are expected to have computers. FAIL"

"Slow to get people inside the building unorganized dont reccomend coming tio this place. Doors open at 9 yet its 9:08 and they only let 2 persons in"

"I went around 1 the line was not that bad like a 10 minute wait. It's like the airport so you have to empty your pockets and take off your belt then go through a metal detector. For my SS replacement a ID or driver's ID is enough to get it mailed."
Daniel Dominguez - February, 2020
"Went there without an appt to request a new ss card due to name change and was pleasantly surprised at the staff efficiency. Although I helped within 30 minutes, it was clear some requests have a longer wait. Make sure you have all needed documents required for the transaction you are processing. Also, since this is a federal building they check your personal items and all customers must go through a metal detector before entering."
K C - January, 2020
"Long lines, especially in the morning between 9am and 12pm. Actually, there is people waiting in line before they open. Avoid the long lines by using their online services."

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.
