To find out if the service you need must be an in-person appointment, call the primary Social Security Office at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 8:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
While you can walk-in to a Social Security Office, you’ll want to make an appointment online. The wait can very long if you don’t have an appointment. You may wind up spending much of your day at your local Social Security office if you don’t have an appointment ahead of time!
Before coming to an office in-person, you’ll want to visit the government’s Emergency page to check the status of your local Social Security Office. This website will give you information on emergency closures and other information on closures in offices near you.
Be aware that Social Security Offices are busiest first thing in the morning and early in the week. In addition, avoid taking a trip to the office during the first week of the month. Instead, visit your local Social Security office later in the day and later in the week, such as on a Thursday or Friday. Keep that in mind when making your appointments, so you don’t have to wait in long lines if you walk in or sit for a while waiting for your appointment.
If you visit an office, you’ll need to remember that you may need to complete a self-assessment checklist to see if it is safe to enter an office.

You can always call your local office ahead of time to find out if there is a possibility of waiting outside. If there is and you’re unable to wait outside, try another Social Security Office near you or go online to see if you can take care of your Social Security needs without having to drive to your local office.
You’ll need to come alone to your Social Security office visit because of the limited space. You can bring another caregiver if you require assistance with your visit. However, only one adult can join you during your visit to your local Social Security Office.
