"It was quick with beautiful customer service. Thank you Ms. Westbrook. Even the guards were very helpful. Thank y'all."
Fabvia Howard - August, 2019
"The Social Security office in Baton Rouge LA off of College Drive has to be the worst example of a government ran agency. My mother recently passed and I did not want my father having to take care of everything while he is still in the grieving process. We arrived at 830am and was met with a line of people down the sidewalk. The initial person we interacted with made an error. DUE TO HER ERROR, we have been here for over 3 hours. The security guards were the most helpful individuals AND THEY ARE NOT EMPLOYEES of the SSN office. Everyone we encountered was rude except for these ladies. People were waiting for hours as the 'professionals' of this office were talking amongst each other versus servicing the taxpayers who they should be servicing. In closing, I requested to speak with a manager and have now been waiting an hour and a half to speak with him/her. Having been here for 3 1/2 hours you would think someone would try their hardest to remedy a stressful situation but alas, the manager doesn't seem to care about the taxpayers sitting in their lobby."

"I came here without an appointment and it was fast, i was out in less than hour. i had all my papers and the Lady was pretty helpful. if you are going to do some paperwork go in the morning and be ready jut in case you need to wait for a bit, but everything is fast ."
Edith Guillen - February, 2019
"I checked in and indicated at that time I was there for Medicare only. I waited for a little over an hour. When my number was called I went to the window to start the process of getting on Medicare only to be told that there is no one available to serve walk-ins. What? I waited over an hour to have them tell me they could not help me? Very poor system of caring about and respecting people. If nothing else, they could put a sign up on the check in computer telling people they have no one available to register people for Medicare on that day."
Bro. Dwight Kenney - November, 2018
"The lady that helped me was great. I had been there previously and made an appointment to see her again. Was there for less than 20 minutes and had my issues resolved."

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.
