Top Tips For Visiting The Syracuse Office

1. Make An Appointment

To avoid waiting in line, the SSA strongly encourages people who can, to use the online services, call the office, and schedule appointments in advance rather than walking in without an appointment. Phone appointments can save you a trip to a busy office.

Be aware, the Syracuse office tends to be busiest first thing in the morning, early in the week, and during the early part of the month. Consider planning to visit at other times.

2. Bring Necessary Documentation

When you call the SSA, be sure you to ask the representative what forms you will need to bring to your appointment. This will prevent you from having to come back again if you forget your documentation. Here are some documents you may need to bring: US birth certificate, US passport, Social Security Card, etc.

You can use this checklist to help you gather the information you need to apply. They request different documents depending on your circumstances. Remember that the SSA must see original document(s), or copies certified by the agency that issued them.

3. Write Down a List of Questions

This will make sure that you get all of your questions answered during your appointment and will save you time.

4. Be Prompt or Early

Whether you make an appointment or not, it’s always a good idea to show up 15 minutes early. You never know what kind of delays might come up on your way to the Syracuse office.

5. Be Polite and Patient

Keep in mind that the Claims Representative you speak to talks with a lot of people each day, and some of them are frustrated and difficult. Your patience and kindness will go a long way to helping you get the service you deserve and getting all your questions answered.

I received a scam call supposedly from social security. I then tried to contact the real social security, which they said they would call me back if I didn't want to wait on hold. A gentleman called me back. He was the rudest person I ever talked to. I was already worried about giving out my personal information. But I reluctantly gave him the info and he hung up on me without giving me any information. I'm extremely upset. He was very rude. I can't believe you have people making calls to people that are rude and not helpful. Now who do i trust or call? I wish I got his name but he hung up to soon. I think this is unacceptable but what can I do?

The staff was nice and it only took us an hour to be seen. The paperwork was filed within 10 minutes. We're doing a name change for my wife and you can go to the dmv and update your license same day in the Syracuse area. If you are doing the enhanced license then no you would have to wait for your new ssc to come in the mail.
