"The gentleman who waited on my wife and I was excellent! I wish I had his name to tell his boss! He was professional and a very good person. He handled our issues quickly, and we left soon after. It was the best response I have ever had at a government office! Thank-You."

"Service was great! Answered my questions with precision and clarity. The guy behind the desk was efficent with his time which made waiting less for everyone in the waiting area. Giving a 4 star on the count that forms were not readily viable or accessible also no pens to fill out the forms."

"Lucked out. Went on a Friday and got there at 11. Was second person called. Lady at first window was very efficient and had us quickly checked in and told us to sit down and wait to have name called. Never got to sit down before we were called to second window to sit down and take care of my questions and sign up for S.S. Adam helped us walk through everything. At first he spoke so fast it was hard for us with hearing issues to understand. After we resolved a few confusing questions Adam slowed down for us to get everything completed. By the end of the meeting I felt like I wanted to invite him over for dinner. I was very pleased with how it all went."

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.
