Top Tips For Visiting The Riverhead 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 Riverhead 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 Riverhead office.

I was in the Riverhead office yesterday on 8-13-19 to apply for Medicare. The representative for your office that assisted me with the application was exceptional with her customer service skills. To be specific, she was "upbeat and positive in nature, a big reassuring smile that she liked her work and was eager to help me. To tell you the truth she was a breath of fresh air in a otherwise ordinary day. Denise I believe was her name and she was highly professional and you definitely have a great asset with her working for SS. I truly hope this note of praise gets to her supervisor with recognition back to her as that is something she truly deserves. Thank you Tom
