"My wife and I both had the joy of working with Rhonda as we needed to decide if the time was right to apply for our Social Security Benefits. She was so helpful in pointing out all the options we had available to us. I never would have been able to make the informed decision I did without her help. I cannot stress how important it is to make an appointment to talk with a specialist before you make a decision about your benefits. If it happens to be Rhonda, so much the better for you. Thank you again Rhonda, for all your help."

"What a wonderful experience I had @ the office off Perry Robinson Cir, Lansing, MI. Wait time was not that long. Ms Lee made me feel very comfortable and provided me with a lot of information. Even called me at home, at the time we designated, for some vital information (that I forgot to bring in). Everyone was kind and pleasant. Was in and out in just over an hour."

"The slow talking and snide remarks like not needing to spell my name, and the hold times we're kinda ridiculous. I'm not mentally challenged and don't apperciate being talked to like an idiot."

"Was fortunate to be in Lansing Michigan last Monday October 15 for a morning appointment that ended early. I decided that I had enought time to go by the local Social Security office on Perry Robinson Circle to order a replacement SS card. Even though I had no appointment my wait time was short, When I was at the window the I was informed that I should file for my Social Security also.\n Once again a very short wait time 'til I was called. Less than one hour later I was in the system!\nMy case was handled by David W who was very courteous and Very patient with my many questions.\nOnce again David thank you for the positive experience of getting signed on.\n\nSincerely Terry Brennan.\n\nP.s. just received my SS card in\nthe mail today!"

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.
