"This office is well managed. Fast service, and pro-active in assisting customers. I have had two occasions to go to this office for assistance. Both instances, outstanding. Associate Willson assisted most recent visit. He was very helpful, quickly provided necessary information."
Gerald & Carol Carson - September, 2019
"Very helpful got in and out. Fast"

"The employees of this office are discriminating against me and my autistic son because they refuse to do their job and I called them incompetent! They lied to me saying they took care of the situation when they didn't. They refuse to transfer me to a supervisor and they never call back when I leave a message. They made a mistake and now we are suffering because of it. They refuse to admit wrong doing. Very unprofessional!"
Arlean Ocasio - December, 2019
"I dread contact with this office full of rude and disrespectful employees.\nEach time I am forced to deal with this office my stomach is tied in knots since it takes nearly monthly calls and/or visits while attempting to accomplish obvious and easy solutions. I have been refused access to my files, court hearings and information to determine the accuracy of my benefit as part of an international claim. When in their facility I am profiled and talked 'at' in coarse, nasty tones. I would rate this office zero if I could. I would rather drive the extra miles to El Paso if they would release my file to them. As it is, I must endure a 110 mile drive each way since the local office has been closed. I feel they could care less about my hard earned benefit."
Dr. Mark Faulk - November, 2019
"Got there at 9:20am on a Friday to do a name change. Horrifying residual memories of long lines at SS office in Southern CA, so expectations were low. But a nice girl gave us a number, told us where to sit, and we waited. We were in and out within 25 minutes. Our clerical guy even smiled at us when we left - like, a genuine smile."
Liliana Christiansen - October, 2019

How do I report a death?

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.
