"The SSA inadvertently over garnished my child support by direct offset to a refund due me for Medicare premium cost previously deducted from my social security benefits. I appealed the issue and the office within 48 hours refunded me the overpaid medicare premium. Excellent job."

"Brandon is super great helped me out. And all . Grateful he way really nice and helpful to the max"
Manzo Mariah - March, 2020
"Maybe spending the past few days in and out of the Harborview Medical Center, as a visitor not a patient, has tempered my impression of this place.\n\nI'm writing this as I am sitting waiting 20 minutes after my scheduled appointment. \n\nWell so far the reviews describing the premises are accurate. It is Thursday at 2:20pm and there are a few open chairs in the waiting area. \n\nI have already been scolded for standing in the open area near the restroom. You are allowed to stand in the foyer however, so there's that!\n\nThe security guards seem to be paying attention and, once a customer's number is called, help direct people to the correct window. \n\nShort tempered, tired, and probably overworked representative, couldn't understand me because I was speaking quickly, once I figured that out, we got on the same page and, helped me get my paperwork completed, processed, and stamped and I was provided a copy for my records.\n\nThe security guards, though probably necessary, were just a couple dumpy white guys unpredictable in mood and helpfulness. One of them was very interested in playing video games on his phone. \n\nOverall the experience left me wanted less."

"I went at 8:40am on a Friday and was out in 10 \nminutes. Friendly guards, friendly enough staff.\n \nAPPOINTMENTS\nDidn’t realize you could make them. Definitely do that. \n\nEMPLOYEES\nThey keep it efficient and fast, so guards can be direct, but are still friendly (said hi and asked everyone how they were). Try being nice to them, they deal with people at their worst. \n\nWAIT TIME\nIt’s Social Security office...being upset about waiting is like being upset that your hot chocolate came hot. Bring a book.\n\nPARKING \nLimited number of spots. Probably about 20. They fill up quickly enough. \n\nI had horrid expectations after reading reviews, then a complete opposite experience. I don’t know what people expect from a SS Office - it’s not a spa. Change your expectations and adapt to make it pleasant (ie bring a book, crafts, go early, be friendly to the employees, etc)."
Kaleigh Concannon - September, 2019
"They sat on an important application like they were gestating an egg. Nearly cost a disabled family member their housing. No signs of concern nor acknowledgement of their multiple mistakes. Ugh."
Allena Sharpe - August, 2019

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.
