"I brought a client here yesterday and she had a horrible experience. The individual my client spoke with started questioning how she came into the US and denied helping my client. I thought maybe there was a misunderstanding, so I tried speaking with him myself. He refused to speak to me without her. He would not assist her even though I had been to this office with her multiple times in the past and the other individuals assisted her. He was rude and made my client feel very upset and unsafe. When I asked for a supervisor, we waited for over an hour and no one came out to talk with us, so we left."
Casey Hokes - January, 2020
"I've been to this location twice, one for myself and once for my dad to update our citizenship status. It was an absolute pleasure to be served by Mr. Barnett both times. The wait time wasn't too long even with a lot of people present. I'd definitely recommend this social security office location."
Basit Ali - October, 2018
"Very knowledgeable, friendly, and professionals. Atmosphere nice, restrooms clean."
Maria Ramirez - February, 2020
"No parking. Rude staff. Super long wait times. They don't respect the citizens."
Bill Palmer - November, 2019
"The wait is usual for any Social Security office. There are times that are busier than others so prepare for that. I come here for my son and compared to the ones in NYC I can tell you there is a big difference. There is a security guard at this location that greets people as they walk in, will allow you to hold his arm as he walks you out, and is just so polite. He is the reason for the 5 stars."

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.

and you can apply directly there. However, you will need to provide original documentation in order to create an account.

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.
