"Everyone was so friendly and efficient! I maybe spent about 30 minutes at the office, and they made the process painless and easy"
Jorgie Makowski - October, 2019
"The wait times are of course extremely long. They have no method to the numbers they call. Their employees randomly close their windows for 20 minutes at a time. The lady that helped me was fast and efficient which was incredible, but it's been months and I don't have a new SS card like I needed. She never actually put in the paperwork. So I have wasted yet another day at the social security administration. But what can you do? Looks like I will be headed back. I do like this location over the Gravios road location as the employees here are a thousand times more competent and they have more room."
Kayla Riddle - June, 2019
"The people who work there have always been helpful and friendly. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of the long wait times."
Matt Higgins - September, 2019
"AWFUL. I walked in and saw there were at least 50 people seated waiting at 10:30am on a weekday. There were clearly not even close to enough windows open to service the number of people waiting. I asked if it was always like this of it there was a best time to arrive and was told the line starts well before this office opens and continues all day. They are extremely understaffed so be prepared for a massive wait, meaning those with a job will need to take PTO as they have very limited operating hours."
Lindsay Doonan - October, 2018
"Expect long waits. I've put in 5 hours trying to get my child's ss card. Sometimes it's standing room only. Everyone's very nice, but long lines. I've been there morning (line forms before opening) and mid-afternoon. Good luck!"

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.
