"Get there before they open. Took 10 minutes to get signed in and get a number. Was done in less than a hour. My person was very helpful with my situation. No poor attitude. Treat them with respect and you will get the same in return. I was dreading going in due to the other reviews, and was pleasantly surprised by my experience."

"Not there yet but not looking forward to visit."

"Came in on a Monday to get my name changed on my s.s card - no appointment, I waited less than 45 mins, when my number was called the gentleman helped me get everything processed in under 10 mins if that. My receipt said possibly 2 weeks for my new card to come and it came the Friday after I was there!"
Abby Rivera - May, 2019
"Worst government ran office ever. Threatened to hand cuff me because I enquired about my deceased husbands case. Keep your eyes open guys this is the new America no rights, no freedom of speech and no benefits for me going on three months because I would not fall in line. Insulted my mothering abilities by posting on my account that my daughter who I love and has always been with me needs a representative. What is this world coming to when we the people are bullied"

"Social Security should outsource or privatize to a corporation, would be a much needed upgrade. I have a newborn son and a birth certificate was not enough to get his first name fixed that was a clerical error on their part. Why can't i verify this information before SSN is issued??? They need more documentation to prove he's ALIVE?!"

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.
