"????????????\nI think we all should appreciate the social security administration! We might not like everything about the functionality of local offices, but my experience with them is good! They've always been helpful with every concern I've had or my wife's concern as it relates to our disabled son. I have been there when people don't have the basics they need to receive information about themselves or their benefits. Then they get mad at the staff. I've seen people shovel their cars out and pile the garbage in the parking lot after they leave the office. I would imagine that it is some of these type of people that complain about the office workers and they're like or dislike of them.\n✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️"

"Staff was very rude. Saw one of the employees talk disrespectfully to an elderly woman who was having a hard time understanding because she did not speak English. they need to work on their communication skills. Please don’t waste your time coming to this office. Staff is also very unfriendly, unorganized and unprofessional."

"Went 2 x this week. First lady has a smile, was so friendly. I didn't get the news I wanted, but she was so nice I couldn't be upset. The other one I said good morning to, (they were open only like 30 min) and I got a grunt. Wanted to double check on what the first friendly lady told me before and all she did is say that's not true, then I said how does it work and I got ' I wouldn't know.' How can you be so miserable of a human when working with people that are there for you to help them!"

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.
