"Worst parking I’ve ever seen, park and then make everyone walk around the building. But don’t worry they are nice enough to give the government employees inside parking out of the rain and not walk around the building. Obviously don’t care about the rest of us peasants as long as we pay our taxes."
Dominic Ottaviano - March, 2020
"I'm always worried when visiting government run facilities cause I had some unpleasant experiences in the past. But, this place completely changed my mind. I had to come here 3 times and was satisfied with my experience every time. The people here are really efficient since the wait is not too long and I had the pleasure of being helped with three excellent staffs who gave me their best in helping me with my issues. Overall a great experience!"
Steven Xu - February, 2020
"Very friendly, very clean, very fast. I was putting off a trip thinking it would take an hour or 2 and I was in-and-out in less than 15 minutes! Catherine helped me and I couldn't be more pleased with her professionalism. The only problem I had was with the parking. Parking is sparse and tight."

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.
