Top Tips For Visiting The Taunton 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 Taunton 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 Taunton 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 arrived at the Social Security office to find a full waiting room the security guard informed me I had to sign in on the Computer terminal which I did and got a number ticket. on the wall it was a television that gave room number and ticket number of the next customer they would also call the number out more than half the time the TV did not get updated with the room and number . At one point they called out a number and no one answered the TV did not get updated after couple minutes the security guard yelled out the number and a elderly gentleman said he didn’t hear him he was hearing impaired he was watching the TV but it didn’t change. If not for the security guard he would’ve missed his turn , when you check in on the computer it asked you if you’re hearing impaired I’m sure the man Indicated he-was but it didn’t make a difference. After an hour and 20 minute wait I noticed people that had come in after me being served within five minutes the tickets were being called the waiting room was almost empty . I could no longer stand the incompetence and left . Only a government agency could screw up the simple number ticket system! I will try again today
