Top Tips For Visiting The Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge 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 wanted to give a shout out to Mrs. Christopher and the other ladies and gentlemen from this office. They are top notch! A+ From the moment I walked in ALL employees were extremely helpful and all smiles. The facility was clean and my wait was minimal. Thank you Mrs. Christopher for your exceptional customer service and everyone else for a pleasant experience! Blessings to all.

I was dreading going as I had heard such bad reports. I was pleasantly surprised. There were over a hundred people and no parking spaces. They moved people quickly and efficiently. I only had to wait a little over an hour. I was surprised. Then when I got to an agent they were personable, caring, answered questions, and rapidly took care of my paperwork without my being called to the window twice as some had to do. Hint: search for the form relating to your issue and print and fill it out before you go in. Read what documents are required and be sure you have those.
