"This place needs to change some of it’s employees. It’s like running a gauntlet of people with bad attitudes. The first person you talk to in the lobby needs a vacation bad. Obviously been doing this job way to long. Don’t get me wrong, some of these workers are very professional but I don’t know how they keep their good outlooks around such pessimists. Sorry for the bad report but one really needs to be in a good mood to deal with this place. Good luck to you and yours. Remember to stay calm at this office. A thumbs up would let me know someone read this review ??."

"This place is a joke. I got there at 3:50 and took a number. When 20 minutes they called me to tell me they were closed and to file a claim I had to be there an hour before closing. I think that if you arrive prior to closing and a take a number you should be waited on and not get the run around. Plus the information I received is inaccurate.The employee told me that I would need to file a claim to see what my benefit would be as I am a widow. I later learned that she could have given that information without filing a claim, Our tax payer dollars at work.Find another office!!!!!"

"I went there for a change of address I had to wait three hours. Some of the customer services at the windows have attitudes problems also the guard's at the door they talk to you if you are a criminal or they think they better than us."

"Everyone was nice. Ms Williams was wonderful to talk to and explained everything i needed to know. All state agency's should be this way."

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.
