Top Tips For Visiting The Joplin 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 Joplin 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 Joplin 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 received a package.The top letter had this highlighted in yellow. Quote “We have scheduled your personal conference for December 4, 2019 at 1:00pm at this office. You will talk with Jim Smith on that day” End Quote The address on the letter DATED November 19, 2019 list SOCIAL SECURITY 4102 S ARIZONA AVE Joplin, Mo 64804-3216 as the office the letter came from. I showed up, but to my surprise the place was closed. They close at noon on Wednesdays. It is posted on the door along with the CLOSED sign. But I had a letter telling me to be there on that date and that time and I drove to Joplin for that meeting. I was told it was a mistake made by a new person. Please let the new person know so it doesn't happen to someone else. Hey, mistakes happen, but it cost you a star and me a half tank of gas.
