"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."

"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."

Navigating the Social Security Office during COVID-19
Today, applying for Social Security benefits or a card can usually be handled online or by phone, without
needing to make an appointment at your local Social Security office. We break down the answers to some of the
most frequently asked questions around navigating Social Security from home.
Which Social Security benefits am I eligible for?
Your Social Security income is made up of 3 potential benefits. Your earned benefit, your spousal
benefit and your survivor benefit. The eligibility for each of these benefits depends on a number of
factors including your income, marital status, and length of marriage.
Find out the benefits you are eligible for and what your income with our 2-minute quiz.
For most people applying for benefits, you can apply online or over the phone, and skip going to the office altogether. Use a checklist to ensure you have all the information and documentation you need to apply.
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.
Our guide on Social Security survivors benefits helps to navigate your options in order to make the most of what you are owed after a death.
If your Social Security card is lost or stolen, you can get a replacement card free of charge.
Log into—or create an account on —
My Social Security,
and you can apply directly there. However, you will need to provide original documentation in order to create an account.
Our guide explains what you need to replace the card.
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.
