"I don't know about the other reviews, but I've always found the agents to be quite engaging and willing to do what's in their power to help. The ONLY reason I'm holding back from 5 stars, and this is NOT the agent's fault, is because some training is needed on crucial programs like the PASS program, etc. which helps you earn to save for goals without affecting benefits. ALSO, detracting because of the Appointment backlog. It seems appointments should be preferred over walk-ins and yet you have to wait a month to get an appointment... it kind of defeats the purpose. Again, though, never had a bad in person experience."

"Surprisingly not a long wait at all. In New York I waited up to 2 hours to be called. It is what it is."
Arlene Valentin - January, 2020
"Employees are rude, hours are inconvenient (e.g., 9a-12a Wednesdays? For what practical reason, honestly?), wait times long, atmosphere is as unprofessional inside the agency as it is dangerous outside of it... Agency needs more efficacious managerial oversight. Definately don't recommend unless you have the patience of Job and time to throw away."
Qmh Haqq - June, 2019
"I have never experienced a problem here. The workers are very nice and very respectful considering the amount of people’s they services daily. Very fast and informative. Come with all your paperwork and perhaps copies. Ask them for copies of what you have filled out. This will CYA in case your paperwork is lost by them."
Essie Keenan - October, 2019
"People are rude, slow and don’t really care about people that they serve. They don’t really master well what they are doing. \nWhen you different windows, they tell you different things. In that case, you don’t know what to do. You have to go there a number of time before I could what I need. \nThey have to be retrained, specially a young lady who thinks she owns the window where she sits."

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.
