    Social Security Complaints


    Call the Security Fraud Hotline to report Social Security fraud. The number is 1-800-269-0271. You can also report fraud on the Social Security Administration’s website. View exit disclaimer policy page for links to third-party websites.

    Social Security numbers are occasionally stolen to commit identity theft. See Identity Theft for more information.

    If your Social Security number was stolen and used to commit identity theft, the Social Security Administration may issue you a three-letter prefix to your number. The prefix will act as an alert to perspective lenders that identity theft occurred.
