"I usually get in fairly quickly without an appointment. The staff are very helpful and almost always can resolve my problem in one visit. They try hard to explain the options clearly so I can make the best choice."

"I don't know why people are complaining about the guard. He is there only to perform his Security Guard duties, there is a big sign which says the security guard is not there to answer questions. To me he is always very courteous and smiles and says Hello. This location is a 5 star in comparison to the one in Fort Myers. Try going there, if you think this is bad. I have always gotten a courteous and swift service. Yes, you have to wait for your number to be called, however there are a whole lot less people ahead of you than other places, once you are called, they take their time to answer all your questions at the window and try to help you to their best ability. All in all, the best experience in a 70 mile radius."

Navigating the Social Security Office during COVID-19
Today, applying for Social Security benefits or a card can usually be handled online or by phone, without
needing to make an appointment at your local Social Security office. We break down the answers to some of the
most frequently asked questions around navigating Social Security from home.
Which Social Security benefits am I eligible for?
Your Social Security income is made up of 3 potential benefits. Your earned benefit, your spousal
benefit and your survivor benefit. The eligibility for each of these benefits depends on a number of
factors including your income, marital status, and length of marriage.
Find out the benefits you are eligible for and what your income with our 2-minute quiz.
For most people applying for benefits, you can apply online or over the phone, and skip going to the office altogether. Use a checklist to ensure you have all the information and documentation you need to apply.
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.
Our guide on Social Security survivors benefits helps to navigate your options in order to make the most of what you are owed after a death.
If your Social Security card is lost or stolen, you can get a replacement card free of charge.
Log into—or create an account on —

and you can apply directly there. However, you will need to provide original documentation in order to create an account.
Our guide explains what you need to replace the card.
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.
