Top Tips For Visiting The Walnut Creek 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 Walnut Creek 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 Walnut Creek 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 made an appointment which did take a month to get. Yes, like everyone else I had to wait on the phone for an hour to get an appointment. However there are many millions on Social Security so it was expected. I showed up to the appointment at the office in Walnut Creek. I signed in and was seen on time. I asked many questions to clarify what I thought I understood from discussions on the phone with the general help line and after reading the information online. They were nice, happy to help and it was a wonderful experience. I feel fully informed. Come to the appointment prepared with y0our questions and without a chip on your shoulder. I have found social security very helpful through a disability process. Take the time, wait and make an appointment. The results are worth the wait on the phone.
