"Warning: This location does NOT take walk-in's. Apparently the main office is not aware of this, as I was told to walk-in after calling the 800-number. Additionally, the security guard was the most unfriendly person in the office, so that was an excellent first impression. Definitely government-run."

"I had a very bad experience with this office. I applied SSN for the very first time on January 7th and got my card on 15th February. It took one and half months to come to my adress. I faced enormous difficulty to view /rent appartments because in every place they asked for my card. I called several times and finally the problem was solved. I dint expect this type of harrassment wit such a vital document that too in my frst time experience."

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.
