"Today I drove 30 mins to the office so I could change my name. I got here and on the door it says they are closed 12/24, 12/25 and 1/1 and today is 12/26 so they are suppose to be open. They had another note taped to to door that says they are closed today. So I drove the whole way in here for absolutely no reason. They have no website and no phone number so you can't even check to make sure they are open. I'm livid that I had to drive 1 hour today for absolutely nothing."

"Very organized and structured federal agency office. Security, check-in and customer service staff were all friendly and efficient! There were many people hence understandably an hour long wait time. The waiting area was clean and comfortable except for the under chair."
Mukaram Syed - July, 2019
"Horrible experience, the security guard was rude and trying to be intimidating when it's obvious i'm not armed and not a threat. I had just gotten married and was applying for my new ssn with married name. It's been nearly 2 months and still haven't received it. Now I had to call there 1800 number and waiting for a call back because there was a 50min wait. I am anticipating having to go back to this horrible place with bums hanging around outside and deal with the rude harsh environment the employees create. Just Horrible, worse than DMV"
Jamie Stephens - December, 2019
"Long wait but they sorted my issue with a lost card in a matter of 5 minutes when it took me 3 days on my own (And I didn't exactly solve it on my own either). Perhaps the only thing I'd say to change is how sharply and loudly some receptionists speak into the overhead phones which can be deafening."
Dentz X - July, 2019
"I was there this afternoon, the place is well organized and very clean also the employees so helpful and also the security officer he was nice he talk gently and when he asking me some questions he was smiling and he helped me."

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.
