"I have had trouble with this office from the time my child was approved in March until now every time I go into the office I’m getting incorrect info had a supervisor call e today after business hours when I LITTERALY waited a hour at the office to open up and be see for the guy to tell me my issue would be handled which led to call after hours so tomorrow will be my third time going in office in one week asked supervisor to speak with someone ahead of her and she pretty much refused but I will most definitely ask for a head person tomorrow in the calmest way possible because I am very irritated with the business they give out."

"I spent over 4 hours sitting in the Columbus, GA SS office to apply for retirement benefits. When I checked in @ 8:55 am, the automated device ask if you're hearing impaired. I checked 'yes.' I wear hearing aids in both ears and have difficulty hearing in quiet environments, much less a busy, noisy office. Some numbers are posted on a screen in front of the room. I watched it for over three hours and my number never appeared. Finally, I approached a window and was told 'we called your number at 12:20.' That would have been about a 3 1/2 hour wait. I was told to take another number and wait, which I did. I sat there some more and finally went to a window and begged the lady to help me as I had to be at work at 1:30. Thankfully she helped me but was obviously put out. \n\nI was so disappointed at the lack of concern and failure to accommodate my disability (why didn't they just post it so I could see it?) that I wrote the ADA and copied the SS office in Columbus. I've NEVER HEARD A WORD FROM THE COLUMBUS OFFICE AND THIS WAS OVER THREE MONTHS AGO.\n\nThe ADA responded and pretty much said, 'there wasn't anything they could do about.' Our tax dollars at work."

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.
