"I had an appointment and was in and out in 20 min. The representative who I saw was knowledgeable and was able to take care of everything. Only thing I would change is the parking (really tight and limited so get there early). Overall very pleased."

"I felt racially profiled by the security guard. I watched this female security guard come at me with a lot of venomous agression. When I entered there was one person who was being screen but I was at least 15 feet away I was told by the security guard to get out of the building in 100 degree. The next 3 people to enter were all white and the were greeted professionally and seated 4th person after me was black male same aggression! You tell me??"

"I went today around 1:15 and ended up having the place to myself, no other people waiting.\nThe lady I spoke with was wonderful. She explained exactly what i needed to do and how to do it. She answered all of my questions. She gave me extra info as well. She was wonderful, i just wish i got her name! I was number A182."
Belinda Webb - September, 2016
"Honestly if you want to be stuck in the void, it's the place to be. No one to notice you, listen to you or help you. \n\nBe prepared for averted eyes, poor body language and no customer service. I'm not sure they're human. Kind of soulless and destitute. Typical govt workers.\n\nMy real rating is 0 stars."

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.
