Top Tips For Visiting The Oceanside 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 Oceanside 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 Oceanside 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.

This office in particular has always been on top of things - listened to my issues and brought in several layers of help when need. With the new renovation, things move along quite well. Est. wait time has been about 5-20 min. There have been issues with the system - no fault of the personnel at the office. They have to deal with a lot of ignorant people with lousy attitudes about "the government" - not a job I'd want for that reason alone!

We have been trying to reach someone that can help me for the last hour. My social security payment has been the same since 2014. Can someone contact me and explain how this can happen? I receive mail that says that my monthly payment is going up but have never seen an increase. Please call me back
