Top Tips For Visiting The New Haven 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 New Haven 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 New Haven 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.

What a bunch of low class Security Boys with little man syndrome!! Today, January 14, 2020 at 12:30 PM, I walked in to the building to go to the Social Security office. I am on crutches and had to take my boots off. I completely understand and I did!! When it came time to put them back on I asked for one of the many empty chairs over by their “station”. I was told they could not walk over there to get it for me, because they could not leave their “station”. I had to sit on the floor to put my boots on and then try to get up off the floor with my crotch in a hip scheduled for replacement surgery in four weeks. All I can say is IGNORANT!!!! POWER TRIP!!! PATHETIC LITTLE SECURITY GUARDS!!! I guess it is important to you to show your “POWER” over a 60 year old woman, on crutches, as YOU CLEARLY DO NOT WEAR THE PANTS IN YOUR OWN HOME, or YOU WOULDN’T BE TRYING SO HARD TO FLEX YOUR MUSCLES AT YOUR PATHETIC JOB!!! I think it was THE LORD, JESUS CHRIST who said.... What goes around - comes around! MAYBE...... SOME A$$HOLE WILL TREAT YOUR MOTHER/DAUGHTER THE SAME WAY, ONE DAY!! ALL IN PAY BACK FOR YOUR LOW-CLASS MINORITY MENTALITY & IGNORANCE!!

I have not been to the New Haven SS office in the Federal building in years, mostly I do business with them over the phone (or maybe internet). I have always been treated professinally and courtiuosly by the people who work there. The security guys are kind of dickheads, but they do their jobs pretty professinaly too. It isn't easy I bet. What I didnt care for was having the giant portraits of President Trump and VP Pence looking down on me while I waited in line. I am happy that has changed for the better! I hope for more good changes in the future!
