"Long wait (about 2 hours) if you walk in to file for benefits.\n\nThe employee who helped my sister was knowledgeable, helpful and consistently kind.\n\nAs with most federally run agencies, they have 19 cubicles, but only 7 or 8 staffed with employees to help folks.\n\nThe new thinking is file online or wait on hold for a phone representative (Again long waits on the phone on hold).\n\nGood luck if you go to this location in person for benefits. We got it done but I heard many complaints and grumbling while we waited!"

"I think it is better tho wait on the phone for ss if the brick and mortar facilities are giving wrong info. If yippy have a smart phone and need to provide documentation i recommend finding a free fax app and submit documents that way. There is a fax app that gives 10 free pages. Just make sure the photo of document is absolutely clear before you hit the accept button to send fax. I did it from my home at 8 pm. Utes i spent 90 minutes on the phone, but it was with a competent person."

"The gentleman who has been security there for quite awhile is great. He is friendly and helpful.He does his job with a good attitude. \nThe SS workers at this location can be a mixed bag for sure.\nThe worker who helped me on my last visit was worth their weight in gold. Some of the workers seem to do their job in an adequate manner. Other SS workers I have dealt with at the Noland location have been unpleasant, unhelpful, unkind and downright arguementative.\nI know the job has to be really really repetitive and I'm quite sure they run across all kinds of personalities, good and not so good. Despite that, I go to the SS Noland location for help and info. When we come in that door we should be afforded the right to be treated as humans at the very least. We should not be talked down to, made fun of ( this has actually happened to me ) or made to be felt bad or ashamed at our circumstances.\nThank you"

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.
