"I just want to know why they are open Wednesday’s from 9-12. Who goes to work for three hours? What sense does that make at all. The one time i was able to get away to handle something with them, they are closed. They need to have office hours in general that are relative to the public."
Lindsey Englebert - September, 2018
"I was prepared to wait a long time, but I was in and out in less than 15 minutes. The security guard at the front was very friendly and helped me figure out the order of operations (start with the big grey touch screen machine to get a number, then sit and wait). The lady who helped was very nice as well. "
Linda Thomas - August, 2016
"Clerk was condescending and gave me attitude while I was truly patient and polite.. very frustrating!"
Mark Nelson - March, 2018
"The wait time is a little long and when they sent me my paperwork, some of the verbal information they got from me had been completely reversed; but they have been very patient about my paperwork being returned late because my illness effects my eyes and consintration. Most would have already denied my case. They even sent copies of each packet in extra large print."
Jessica Phelps - November, 2016
"This is the slowest and least helpful social security office I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. It took them over a year to get my children's benefits going even though I have been established for 8 years. Then they screwed up and sent the retro benefits to the wrong child... It's been a year since I filed the appeal and STILL no word on a decision. In short THIS OFFICE SUCKS!"

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.
