"I went here today to get my father a replacement social security card. Got there at 8 and there was a line but not too long. Took about 20 min to get inside. When inside the process went very smoothly. My case was processed by Ms. James who was professional and very pleasant. My experience was definitely a good one."

"On July 23, 2018. I went to the office to replace my social card to unlimited. I got a ticket number 596. did not wait long. What I want to mention is Window 12A on this day. Unexpectedly I met a Chinese Speaking representative. A male with a pleasant attitude. He helped me and communicate with me. Thanks for his help.\n\nOne more thing I want to mention is that this period of mine is a new start in life. I could calm down to be an American but not a temporary visiting alien.\n\nThanks for US Government and My judge Mr. A.C. He is one of best immigration officers. My judge went over all my submitted documents so seriously and clearly checked all the points. He even knew where is the wrong explanation. All My documents are about to thousand pages. It is challenging work to be a decision maker. He made the decision on the base of TRUTH and JUSTICE. He deserves any good rewards for his dedication, responsibility, seriousness. I would like to follow his work attitude, try to be an appropriate person to any social position which I will treat it as deeply meaningful and important. I had a heart of gratitude. pray for judge Amit.C for his Goodness condition.\n\nI will be a perfect person. Love people with a compassionate ❤️ heart which is more stable and truthful than the superficial emotion. Contribute my wisdom and energy to better the society. \n???\nFrom jing Zhao —an orphan from China, experienced lots of hardships for personal belief. finally accepted by the US. Government?"

"Don’t make decisions on visiting somewhere based off of these reviews! Lol. My husband and I went to apply for his SS card last week and were pleasantly surprised with our experience especially after reading these reviews. We arrived around 2:30 P.M. and the security line was long but it moved pretty quickly and the guards were friendly. We were called within 20 minutes to see an agent and she informed us that I could also get my name change done on my SS card, I thought I would have to translate my marriage certificate before I could get that done. So, we got back in line and were called within 10 minutes to see another agent and were out the door 5 minutes after. Overall the place seemed very organized and everyone was pleasant! We didn’t feel rushed at all despite being there so close to closing and on a Monday."

How do I report a death?

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.
