"The service is excellent."
Carmelo Salguedo - March, 2019
"I went in for a name change due to marriage, signed in at the kiosk and was called in within 10 minutes (not even). Before signing in, I saw at least 20 people waiting and thought it would be awhile. It probably went faster for me because I was in for a name change only. Have your proper documents ready and you'll be in and out in no time. The lady who helped me was very nice and efficient."
Anna Bynum - January, 2020
"My experience at the Melville office was extremely positive. If you come prepared with the necessary documents the staff will process your request quickly and efficiently. Ms. Theodore attended my case and she was professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to meet."
Maureen Walsh - March, 2020
"Small office with sufficient seating. Folks who worked at the counter were nice, security guard not so much. Just sign in with the automatic kiosk to avoid and depending on the reason, quick turn around. Was in and out within 30 minutes."
Nina A - March, 2019
"Fast and easy. Staff was expedient and helpful. Security guard actually does his job instead of just sitting around."
Giovanni Reres - June, 2019

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.
