"I would love to give a negative zero stars especially for the agency workers, but that’s not a option! They need to learn how to be more professional and communicate better to us. There two security guards in the building. The Older security guard very welcoming and willing to help you check in. Goes beyond his job to help you. His more then just a security guard. His like a customer service rep as well! Second security guards seat down at the desk and does nothing but play with his phone half of time. When he does help he is extremely rude and lazy. For a government agent office. It should always feel welcoming from all. If you walking in be prepared to wait for over 2 hrs!."

"Was in and out in 10 min."

"There is no way on earth to make an appointment with a human for this location. The phone number gets you a recording that tells you to call between 7 am and 7 pm M-F, even though you're calling during those hours. There is nothing on the website to get you through to someone who can set up an appointment for you. Everything directs you to the phone number, which tells you to call back between 7 am and 7 pm M-F, even though you're calling at 9:10 on a Wednesday. It is possible they're in a different time zone, for example, Guam. That would explain everything, because they don't actually tell you the time zone."

"They only process retirement benefits here (no name change or any other services). Thought I'd save someone the time not making the same mistake getting all the way there just to be pointed to the 123 William Street location. Their website says you can take it to any SSA office which is misleading."

"DO NOT GO HERE for anything other than retirement work."

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.
