"I've had the (learning) opportunity to visit this location several times over the past 2-3 years. The lines are long and slow .. no surprise there, but:\n1) inside waiting area and bathrooms are immaculate\n2) clerks are always very friendly, and often competent and helpful\n3) parking is plentiful, as long as you drive over the curb and park in the dirt lot just to the North\n4) the clincher: the security officer. He's seriously amazing in how he manages the flow of customers. He was incredibly helpful, patient, and competent. He seemed to intuitively recognize which customers would need extra help understanding/hearing when their name/number was called, and would watch out for them and help when needed. I saw him do this repeatedly, over multiple visits. It almost appeared that he actually remembered everyone's name who was currently waiting. I think everyone who has visited this location in the past year should get together and buy this guy a Christmas present. He really makes the visit far more tolerable."

"Mr. Sean Alexander Is Very Good At His Job. He Promised To Follow Up And He Did So. He Is Very Professional And Ssi Should Be Very Proud In Employing Such An Exemplry Professional. He Has Heart And Understands The Hardship That Everyday People Go Through To Survive And Not End Up Homeless. Also The Security At This Location Is Very Organised And Helpful Especially Officer C. Rolf He Is Very Thorough.... Both Are Super Cool People"

"Security guard was very patient and polite. Window 7 on the other hand had a rude, ignorant piece of work. Apparently people still discriminate over appearances and that's disappointing, especially for a professional government office... Update, lawyer went back in with fiance. Attitude was completely adjusted."
Moses Jay - July, 2019
"Amazing and wonderful! I expected to be put on hold for an hour listening to the world's worst music. A human answered right away. I expected to make an appointment, have to go there and, of course, be told I didn't have the right documentation and have to return at some distant date, yet to be determined.\nNone of that happened. I spoke with an incredibly kind man named Joe who answered my questions, had information I needed mailed out to me right away and just like that, I was enrolled.\nI am not making this up. The whole experience was remarkable for its efficiency. Thank you, Oceanside Social Security."

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.
