Top Tips For Visiting The Glenwood Springs 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 Glenwood Springs 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 Glenwood Springs 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.

There is NO WAY to contact the Glenwood Springs, Colorado, office by telephone. Not very customer service oriented when one cannot call to make an appointment. The only phone number shown is the main SSA Administration “800” number. After being on hold for an hour (or longer) they cannot even give you an appointment with this office, nor their phone number. Need to provide this very basic and desperately needed information! There is not even an email address for this office! So frustrating. Time to move into the 21st century with this office. Just telling the truth.

I've had two good experiences with SSA Glenwood Springs recently. The first time an agent answered before my call went on hold! The second time my call went on hold very briefly. In both cases I got all the information I needed quickly and courteously. I really appreciate this improvement in the local office and commend your efforts!

This office is obviously horribly understaffed. You get a 3 hour window to get there, they have 1 person working. Paperwork that could be mailed (I chose not to because I have had the "we did not receive it" problem) cannot just be dropped off, you must wait to see someone. Last time was about an hour wait to hand someone the papers, he glanced at them and said thanks. Today, we tried going at 10:30. There was a lobby full of people and several said they had arrived at 9am. Again, only one person working. The only way to make an appointment is to wait to see a person. Seriously?! Absolutely the worst.
