Top Tips For Visiting The La Crosse 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 La Crosse 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 La Crosse 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 have been trying to get a hold of the LaCrosse Office. All I get is an answering machine that tells me no one is available and to contact Social Security on line but they cannot help me. I contacted the Social Security Office National Office and they tell be I have to talk to the LaCrosse Office. I did get through to them about a month ago and the agent who has my information was gone and my information was in his office. They said he would call me back and still no call back. What can I do????

No one here does their job. They don’t return calls EVER. It’s useless. Even the manager doesn’t care. They don’t input wage earnings to assure you get your correct monthly amounts. I’m not sure why they get paid just to sit there and do everything but their job. They need new employees at this office that do their job.

I needed a lot of help when I received SS Disability and the La Crosse office folks helped me out a lot. When I needed to file on my claim for my daughters, they made that whole process really easy and took care of it quickly. They have always answered my calls, even when I had to leave a message. These people have a lot to do in the course of a day. My needs are just for one person, they have hundreds of people from La Crosse and the surrounding area to help every day. We seem to want to be so judgmental when we don't get what we want when we expect to get it and we all do it. But at the same time, we ought to be willing to say thank you when someone goes above and beyond our expectations and makes things happen for us.
