Customer Question
My husband passed away...

My husband passed away on November 28,2017, and I need to make an appointment at the Valrico, FL office as soon as possible. How do I go about doing this?

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I need to go talk to them about his and my retirement checks.

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

My next check will be coming in on the second

(1) By calling 1-***-***-****, you can speak to a Social Security representative ... (Generally, you’ll have a shorter wait time if you call during the week after Tuesday) ... between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. They set the appointments.

OR

...

(2) ... You can walk into to your closest Social Security Office. (Although you might want to call the number above first to make an appointment ... becasue you'll likely be there all day only to come away with an appointment for another day.

...

You may be on the line for 30 minutes or so waiting, so you may want to curl up with a good book, but calling is the lesser or the evils.
