Top Tips For Visiting The Temple 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 Temple 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 Temple 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.

My husband was recently in the Temple Texas office and spoke with the older lady at window 15. He was turning in SSI paperwork when she said to him basically you don't want to work so you can collect social security. My husband is retired military and still suffers from things he experienced on a daily basis that she or half the people don't understand. This was a completely disgusting comment and needs to be addressed. People should not be treated that way especially when they do need the help. I have been on hold with the 1866 number for over 15 mins and can not get ahold of anyone in charge. I did not feel comfortable leaving our paperwork with someone that views us as what she seemed to view us as.

Excellent service, and the young man I spoke to was very kind. The phone wait is a bit long, but that is to be expected with all we are currently experiencing. Keep up the good work.
