"Nice place but Way to Small. You sit knee to knee and shoulder to shoulder with people. I know they have money so why don't they make the office bigger."
Arika R. - July, 2019
"My husband changed his name after we got married and these guys changed his middle name without telling us it wouldn't be legal to change his middle name without a court order. Now my husband doesn't even have a legal name and it's a whole mess. I am extremely disappointed in them and wonder about there competence"
Sierra Valentine - March, 2019
"I've been suffering from a disease for a year and a 1/4 now, attempting to get disability multiple times to no avail. Went there today (Wednesday) not knowing they closed at noon. The staff and security guard was extremely rude to my father and I. The security guards first comment towards my Dad was 'what business do you have here? Why are you here?' While i was in pain passing bloody stool in the bathroom. My Dad told him that his disabled son was in the bathroom and he shut his arrogant, ignorant, inconsiderate, rude mouth. That guy needs to reconsider his profession or just get fired. Worst experience with licensed 'professionals' that work for the state I've had in awhile, and people wonder why I dislike our government. A democracy is supposed to take care of our people, but here in Lewiston Idaho they are doing the exact opposite. This establishment is horrible -999/10. I hate what they do. I hope they read and pay attention to complaints so they can fix their stupid facility and get their stuff together so it can actually serve it's purpose in helping the disabled and poverty stricken people of the valley. You guys suck, change something, because right now, your system is a failure on every level."

"I went in yesterday to get some stuff changed expecting them to be open like normal business offices, but they closed at 12 on a Wednesday! Why?! Then I went again today before work, my only other time this week that I can, and they had an hour wait which would have made me run late for work. They really need to fix their hours and get a bigger building so people aren't waiting outside for an hour. If I didn't need to get this done I wouldn't come back here."

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.
