Top Tips For Visiting The Hackensack 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 Hackensack 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 Hackensack 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 in this office more than 6 times to submit my application for Medicare. I can not express the frustration I experience every time I come here. The employees with no exception are rude, have no patience whatsoever, and treat us with arrogance and a bad attitude . The waiting room is arranged in such bad manner that we can’t move or walk without stepping on everybody’s feet when they call our number or name (after many hours of waiting) At last,I want to say something about the GUARD sitting as we coming. I have never seen anyone more disrespectful towards people. We understand that he’s NOT there to answer questions, we get it !!!!! But, please can you represent the federal government office that you work for,in a little bit better manner? I have witnessed the way he talks to people, unbelievable!!
