What Can I Do At A Social Security Administration Office?

If you are applying for disability benefits, a trip to the Social Security Administration (SSA) field office could be beneficial. At the Social Security office, you can meet face-to-face with a SSA representative. This representative can go over your medical records and supporting evidence. The representative can answer any questions that you may have, and help you determine if you have the documentation and evidence that you need for a successful disability claim.

A SSA employee can help you complete your claim form and can also determine if you have earned enough credits to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or if you mee the financial criteria to qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Representatives are familiar with the criteria and can determine if you meet the specific criteria to qualify for disability benefits.

If you have an existing claim, a SSA representative at the Social Security office can help you by responding to any questions you have. The representative can help you set up direct deposit or change direct deposit accounts or set up a payee for your benefits if you are unable to handle your own finances.

With a visit to the Social Security office, you can start a claim, complete the forms for an existing claim, or provide supporting evidence for a supporting claim or make changes to the details on a current claim. You will need to schedule an appointment in advance at your nearest SSA office. You can schedule an appointment by calling 1-800-772-1213. For more information, visit
