"Needed to update my tax withholding for SS. Wife and I were in out in no time. Gentleman that helped us was courteous and made sure our form was filled out correctly. Will be changed today."
Rick Evans - February, 2020
"Just came from the Office in LaSalle. The man that I talked too was very rude. I was trying to ask a question so I wouldn't make a mistake and he said everything was set-explanatory and just fill it out and send it in. At one point he said he wasn't going to waste his time and help. This person should not be working with the public people especially the older ones. I just hope everything is right when I fill it out. I also told him my Accountant said to go to the office and talk to them in person. He said 'she had no right telling me to come to the office. That was wrong. This is all NEW to me and you are here to help us. I wish I knew this guys name. I would love to report him. This guy doesn’t deserve to work there."

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.
