"I'm used to having to wait in these offices F O R E V E R. The wait at this office isn't nearly as bad and so far almost all of the people I have had to deal with have been very helpful and pleasant with the exception of only one person. That is quite remarkable all things considered. Everyone else has gone above and beyond to be helpful!"
Charlie Hibner - September, 2019
"Really quick and easy! And the girl that helped me was cute too Lol! Should've asked her for her number but didn't wanna hold people up"
James Miller - August, 2019
"Extremely rude and dismissive. They never get the information correct the first time, resulting in even more visits, calls, and paperwork. Horrible people to have to deal with."
Michele Horne - July, 2019
"Very, very dissatisfied with the Lake City FL OFFICE. They lose paperwork, can't get in touch with them. Was told by LC office Supervisor, Ms. Cheek, that she would call me back and never followed through on her word. LC OFFICE should be closed, Gainesville FL office does their work for them. Good way to save some federal funds and give them to the offices that are legitimate."
Mark Putnal - February, 2019
"Horrible I had to come back three times to get a social security card for my kids, there birth certificate was NOT a form of ID as well as shot records and the forms I had. I kept getting nasty stares from the security guard. And it took over an hour each time to just talk to someone"

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.
