Top Tips For Visiting The Lufkin 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 Lufkin 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 Lufkin 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.

Wonderful service. I called about getting our Social Security benifit letter for 2019. The lady was a real sweetheart. No run around just straight talk and she put the documents in the mail. Texas has the best people in public service people, no other state can hold a candle to them.

The reconsideration packet was never mailed. I got a proof of income last. I was not denied for disability just ssi they didn't forget. I got handed a private attorney' reference sheet which had talk of an allowed claim. I called lone star legal aid and had an application faxed. She asked if I had bank account information to provide and I dont.i was asked to mail my tax information. The numbers on the 1099 were written out. I called the ssa and was directed to the irs and they don't mail taxes. The website implied you have to own a house or car.i decided to ask my land owner for paper and envelope. I waited till the next week to call . I applied for lone star legal aid January 28 2019 and was reviewed and approved February 4th 2019 and told to watch the mail. She said she was not the ssa. I am Receiving backpay when they checked and mentioned a review that information was included too. I am waiting on my card in the mail. There is no set date for it being sent out. Deposit day for me is February 20th fingers crossed. Thanks lone Star legal aid! I figured it out and watch my address. ✔️💳🕚📭
