Dear Customer,

I am sorry about your loss.

If we need to report a death, contact the local Social Security office or call 1-***-***-**** ( TTY 1-***-***-****). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday. Note: In most cases, the funeral home will report the person's death to Social Security.
