"Had a great experience here today! I read a lot of the reviews before going, saying not to go first thing in the morning because of insanely long wait times, so I went at 3:15 and was out by 3:50!!! Everyone I encountered was pleasant and friendly, from the security guard, to the woman who checked me in, to Ms. Ford who processed my paperwork. Ms. Ford was awesome. She was kind, efficient, and knowledgeable. I'm sorry that others have had such bad experiences, but mine was super."

"My suggestion is to not go on Monday morning. There has to be a better day.\n\nMy wife and I showed up at 8:25am, before they open. There were 40-50 people ahead of us waiting for the office to open the doors. Once the doors opened it took about 30 minutes to get inside the building with the amount of people in front of us that were waiting for the doors to open. \n\nIt took us 2 hours to get a number and an hour and a half to be called to the window.\n\nMy wife and I were rotating who sits and stands while waiting in line to receive a number, which was nice to make the hour-and-a-half wait once we entered the building less grueling.\n\nI have posted two photos of the outside line. One picture before we got in line and one picture after we left the building, 3.5 to 4 hours later. \n\nWe were there to request original Social Security card for my permanent resident spouse. All we had to do was show the Visa stamp, not the I-94, and her passport with birth certificate to prove age. We had the form filled out already before we got in line. She arrived here as a spouse of a citizen a month ago\n\nI realized while standing in line that there is a customer service number. I have not tried it but if you don't realize there is try it and let me know how it goes I'm wiling to bet you would be waiting an hour on hold just to get simple questions answered."

"Went in on a Wednesday at about 12:15 got seen at 12:30 and was out by 12:45 or so. It wasn’t crowded and they seemed to be moving pretty fast but it might depend on what you’re there for. If you can, print out the forms that you need and fill them out before going."

"These previous reviews scared me, but experience was great for me. Took me 1.5 hours, not bad. Line was long to get my number, but once I got my number they took me within 10 minutes. Staff were friendly and helpful!"

"I felt the agent I delt with was very mean."

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.
