Top Tips For Visiting The Washington 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 Washington 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 Washington 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 was impressed by the service provided to me when I called the Social Security office to change my home address and the routing number of my bank account so that my monthly Social Security benefit check can be deposited directly in my new bank account. Mr. Ruiz was very professional and polite when he was helping me fill out the necessary forms. Because I was born in Taiwan, I am always apprehensive about my Taiwanese accent even though I went a graduate school in Washington, DC and have lived in the USA for more than 50 years. Mr. Ruiz told me he had no problems understanding my English. When we came to the Medicare part, Mr. Ruiz asked me which month and year I started my Medicare. I remembered I started Medicare at the age of 65. Since I was born in 1941, all what I had to do was to figure what it would be, 41 plus 65. Mr. Ruiz politely asked me to look it up on my Medicare card. Surely enough, it was 2006. Thank you, Mr. Ruiz, for your understanding. Mr. Ruiz also advised me to wait until my Social Security benefit check is posted on my new bank account before I close the old one. I will certainly follow his advice. Both my thumbs are up for Mr. Ruiz for his outstanding service.
