"Parking is easy just have to know the office in in the Brick building next to the swells Gatho Bank. Been here 3 times for the same thing: trying to finalize my approval for disability granted on 12/6/19. Was told I’d get a call back w in the next two days from a representative Ito finalize my paperwork that would be Friday or Monday. I received no call either day. I went down there my 2 x only to be coldly told that 2 letters were sent to me and she actually said she sent them to me and I didn’t respond. I politely told her I did respond by coming down here last week only to be told I’d get a call instead because this process takes a lot of time and that’s allocated by appointment only, mind you I had an appointment. She didn’t listen and said I can schedule you an appointment or we can call you. I opted for an appointment the following week I went to my appointment and the representative said I didn’t have an appointment but a representative can call you tomorrow what’s a good time? I explained my plight he apologized and set my call appointment the next day. That day no call came I’m now going on a 4th trip to Whittier Social Security to finalize my paperwork w no appointment scheduled I’m hoping that might change my luck."

"Very satisfied with my recent visit (07/25/19)to this location. Didn’t have an appointment, just walked in for a name change and got my number called in within 45 minutes and in and out in an hour. Not bad at all without an appointment . The person who served me was nice and helpful. Happy with the time spent. The security guard needs to learn about the customer service though."

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.
