Tips For a Worry-Free Visit to the Social Security Office

There are some things you can do to prepare for your visit to the {state} social security office to get the best experience possible. The list below gives you a few tips to help make your experience as smooth as possible.

  • Arrive early to avoid the long queues at some offices. You should try and get there about 20 minutes before your booked time.
  • You may still have to wait beyond your appointment time as staff may be busy attending to other clients. You should exercise some patience in such a situation and know that the staff are not just idling about.
  • You should come with all the documents you have to help them resolve your issue quickly. You should even bring documents you don’t think might be needed because you just don’t know what they’ll request. The most important documents to bring are your birth certificate, identification (such as passport or driver’s license) and proof that you’re a citizen of the United States or a legal resident if you’re not a citizen.
