"Was very apprehensive when I saw the review score for this office and expected the worst. Saw some weird people waiting their turn so those must be the ones that submit poor reviews. Got there before noon waited my turn told the man my request for future benefits letter for my mortgage banker, took a minute to figure out how to word it and then typed it up. No issues, no problems just prompt service. Thank you."

"On the 14th of June, roughly around 2pm me and some fellow co-workers had an appointment to gain social security numbers. After 2 people successfully gained their social security numbers we ran into a slight issue, as one lady on the desk explained that we simply did not have the correct documents, even though two others had be accepted for the numbers. The rest of my co-workers continued to have their appointments some were accepted and some were dismissed, after understanding what documents were missing we contacted our boss and asked if the missing documents could be faxed over, this was rudely dismissed by your staff. Our boss then took the long journey to bring the missing documents so that we could complete the process, however the lady on the desk harshly told our staff that we were still missing documents and that none of our applications would be processed. On top of this we tried to make another appointment to which one of your staff members interrupted my co-worker and explained she would have to get a number even though this staff member was not busy with any other customer, in a sarcastic manner she told my co-worker to have a good day. Overall what should have been a simple process has been made a mess of and I feel this establishment is very unorganised and had a lack of communication between staff members and customers, I am very disappointed!!!"

"I came in today simply to ask to make an appointment, and the woman I approached to ask refused to even let me finish my question - instead, she cut me off and told me that “everybody has a fast question, sweetie, but you still have to take a number.” I turned away in frustration and she yelled after me, in a miserably sarcastic tone, “have a great day!” Someone teach this woman that it costs nothing to be nice!"

"I recently sent them my original birth certificate and marriage license in the mail to get my last name changed. Over a month later they finally send them back and both documents are ripped in half, and the envelope they came in was barely closed. This envelope contained all my personal information and they send it in an envelope that is halfway open and not properly sealed. Do not send your stuff here!"

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.
