"The doors open at 9 AM and there is a guard that is controlling the flow of people as they get in. The process for getting a social security card is fast as long as you have a valid ID and ssn."
Sergioo Sierraa - January, 2020
"I went in to update my last name after getting married. I arrived 30 minutes before opening on the first of the month. I had all my paperwork with me. The doors opened at 9:00. I was walking out of there by 9:15 ? The service was quick and friendly. There was really no need for me to get there so early. There were maybe about 30 people waiting with me."
Jacqueline Escobar - November, 2019
"I was there in the afternoon & the officer at the security desk was very friendly and helpful—helping direct customers to the right window. Service was quick and the associate who helped me at the window was nice and professional."

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.
