"I left the building crying. Then called my social worker. I have never been treated so badly in a public place. And to think, tax dollars employ these so called 'public servants'. I was accused and insulted numerous times by the SSA worker. OMG."
Margaret Burdick - November, 2019
"Rude Hispanic Hearing Guard. Not sure what kind of guard he is? You give employees a uniform with a badge and they can be SO rude! I was spoken to so rudely! I asked a simply question! The ticket says to fill out an application and wait to be seated. The application didn't need to be filled out. Why put that info on the ticket number?"

"The rudest of helpers on the front line.\nDisrespectful and unsympathetic.\nAfter waiting an hour was told we didn't have all the paperwork.\nYou'd think they would be nicer about it but the gal we dealt with almost\nTook pleasure in it.\nWe just called customer service and put a complaint on her.\nA complete incompetent, belly aching, battle axe of a women.. and that's putting it nicely!"
Bret K - May, 2019
"Most difficult website for creating an account. I entered my information EXACTLY as it asked and it locked me out of being able to create an account. Incompetent people behind the programming of this website. Get it together people!"
Adam Macari - August, 2019
"I'm glad to hear that some have had good experiences at this office but if you are Mentally disabled they are very lacking in explaining things at a level that a person with disabilities can understand. And when you press them for more clear and concise information they treat you like you've done something offensive to them.\nI'm appalled at the lack of empathy for those that are obviously in need and have nothing else to fall back on. I've actually seen glee in an individual that stripped my son of his benefits because he didn't answer their questions properly. They confused him and when he didn't give the correct answer, they took his benefit. We've been trying for over a month to get them back. But we can't seem to get anyone to listen.\nWhen will SS get some sensitivity training? They are there to HELP these folks! Not make things worse for them, things are already bad enough!!"

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.
