"Bit of a wait but very pleasant staff. Even though I was short on my documentation I was still able to apply for benefits. These folks know their stuff. Very impressed."
Robin Johnson - February, 2020
"Phone call was answered promptly by Myra and she helped me tremendously with my S.S. matter. Courteous and compassionate in dealing with my situation. I was surprised that I did not need to visit the office, that I could resolve my matter by phone."
Christina Perfetti - January, 2020
"Tried to get replacement SSN cards for my children. Web site says it will take a school ID. He would not even talk to me without a signed and sealed transcript from their school. I had original birth certificates and a high school ID which was issued by a State institution which it shows is accepted online. NOWHERE on the web site does it state that they accept a signed and sealed school transcript that I can find. Waited 2 hours for nothing. And by the way, apparently they do appointments which I also have not yet found on the web site."
Jennifer Cottle - June, 2019
"They lied to me about anything they could. They made me a homeless person for a year and did everything they could to cover it up."
Michael Dienes - October, 2019
"The SS Administration today was very slow. I had a appointment at 12:00 With a letter. It's now 1:26 and still have not been seen. The security guard was very very rude and millitant. I feel he should be a little bit more personable and helpfully he is the front desk man that is so post to be nice and helpful. He put me on the defensive immediately and followed me around,like I was lowlife sum or something. He was creepy and acted very rude like he had hate for me and it showed. This whole experience was a night nare for me. They might need a review to make sure they r doing there jobs right. People don't have to b so hateful for no reason."

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.
