"Currently waiting four hours plus. Office seems to be disorganized. Staff goes to lunch between 1- 2 PM and has one person scanning all that are waiting. This way to handle the low hanging fruit requests and get them out of the way. Subsequently, instructing those with more difficult questions to wait. Then at two pm they start seeing people with their requests. Need to have lunch done on a rotation basis to keep the ch low moving."
Edward Kane - January, 2019
"Came to social security for help regarding submitting paperwork requested from a phone interview to Mr. Elvarado to be discriminated against by the front desk security guard. Brought my registered service animal with me because I was not well the day I went in. I had the proper ID. Dog was in container. I have a medical condition causing seizures and the woman wanted to know why I was disabled. I tried to hand her my service dog ID and she waved her hand away at me and said, 'I have nothing for you.' She brought out a supervisor to speak to me about the 'situation', there being none as I had sat the the back, the animal quietly laying by my side in her carrier. Way to make a bigger deal out of nothing when nobody else was even paying attention just to make life harder. Dealing with social security is hard enough as it is and then added rudeness and unprofessionalism to top it off is not appropriate."

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.
