"My time at the Social Security Administration offices in Syracuse was fast and easy. I arrived prior to the offices opening, had all of the necessary documentation, (I checked their web site to see what I needed to conduct my business) and the person with whom I met there was very knowledgeable and my visit with that individual went very smoothly. Had I not been prepared I probably would have had a different experience. No call complaints on my part."
Janis Briggs-Rowland - October, 2019
"Better now since the renovation. There is still a wait so book an appointment online"
Antoinette Troutman - July, 2019
"The staff was nice and it only took us an hour to be seen. The paperwork was filed within 10 minutes. We're doing a name change for my wife and you can go to the dmv and update your license same day in the Syracuse area. If you are doing the enhanced license then no you would have to wait for your new ssc to come in the mail."
Lattrice McGrady - March, 2019
"The visit 8s long and boring bring a book or something to pass your time oh and something to drink there 8s a cafe. But you have to leave the office. When you get there sign in and get a number take a seat and wait for your number to come up. Take note if you have to leave the room for any reason let the officer in the corner know. It is very important"
Elaine Renodin - March, 2019
"Have been trying to contact them but only getting automated message hat isn't important to me. It's like these people have zero care for humans who try to reach them. Without an appointment plan to spend your 7-hour day with them just sitting there and watching others. If you try to make an appointment, the answering machine tells you'no one is available to talk to you. Why is this the case in America? A so called powerful nation in the world and you treat your citizens in this manner? This is a big shame. Please have a little bit of respect for your citizens before blowing your trumpet loud declaring how powerful you are."

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.
