Top Tips For Visiting The Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Richmond 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 called today and the person would not clarify questions I had about questions he was asking me. I want a call back from a supervisor right away.

I think I got a phishing call from Carmelita about my SSA benefits. I want to check this out. The number she called from was 510 970 1127. The number she asked me to call her back on is 510 970 1545. Do I need to be worried, or does she work for you in the SSA office?

March 7, 2018 I accompanied a very elderly gentleman who needed to update his status with SSI . We went to the Richmond office today where we did not have a very long wait...so much better than Walnut Creek where the parking is awful. . We had an EXCELLENT experience with Erin Duffel A ++++the Clerk who assisted us. She was upbeat, efficient and very courtesy.
