"The worst place ever, the person who helped me is not patient and responsible. Disrespecting for the elderly and unfriendly to non-English speakers."

"This is the place to apply for social security benefits, long wait, they are not knowledgeable of the law. You have to do your homework and prepare yourself. Very rude staff, they are not helpful. We had to waited so long and the lines are long. Some are nice n helpful."
ERNEST SIEW - July, 2018
"Not that this office care but this place is juat horrible.\nHorrible wait time. Basically. The whole day.\nLack of man power and very lazy and unprofessional employees.\nThere are many elders here that need to get attended and should Not have to wait a full day to be seen, especially when making an employment.\nThey do not rotate breaks appropriately leaving only one employee to handle everything.\nNice to know where my tax pay goes."
Gan Eden - June, 2019
"I have yet to experience any terrible service. Everyone who works there is very patient and are great at answering any questions or concerns pertaining to ssi or SSA, I have seen translators there, so that they can provide good service to everyone. The line moves fairly quick. I would of gave 5 stars if the parking was better."
Len Hern - December, 2018
"If you want to apply for something for the first time (like SSA, SSI) and you don't have an appointment, you need to arrive very early like 6:30am to 7am because they only do a limited number of applications per day. Come prepared with all documentation ready so you don't have to come back. Bring something to eat, drink, read because it takes 5 to 8 hours.\nService has been respectful all the times I've been there. \nI wish the ticket monitor was better designed (like the DMV or Medicaid office) because it can be confusing for those who can't understand English quickly. And if the tickets were spoken on foreign languages (esp. Chinese, Korean, Spanish) that would reduce a lot of headaches there."

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.
