"The employees at this office are fabulous! We waited about 20 minutes and they couldn't have been more friendly from our first contact with the woman at the window to the gentleman that answered our questions in detail. They were all great. Thank you so much."

"When I was at the Social Security office, I was there about 2:00 pm. It was rather busy. I was worried we would be there a long time!! Here it wasn't that bad at all. The staff have a very good system in place where they place you in categories according to your individual problems. I think it's a great way to keep people who just need to get a reward letter to a full review from being able to not get stuck behind. The only problem I have is with no outside drop off box. If you are off to a late start and need something turned in by a certain time you have to wait till they are open. Sometimes drop offs on the outside can save you from having problems with your benefits! Thank you."

"I need information about how to correct my online log in and password which I forgot but I can't wait on phone for 55 minutes"

"Very unhelpful. After going into the office and waiting to speak with a representative, I finally put in my request for a new card.\nAfter 30 days and having still not received one, I called and was told I'd have to go back to the office and reapply again.\nWhy am I taking time out of my day to correct their mistake?\nPerhaps you should hire some new people there as the current staff are rude, incompetent, and have no idea what they're doing."

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.
