Charleston Social Security Office Visits

It is very important to make sure you have all the proper documentation for your visit in order for your transaction to be successful. Scheduling an appointment is the most efficient way to not only cut down on your wait time, but also ask about what paperwork you will need for your visit. You always need a form of identification such as your Driver’s License or Passport. However, your birth certificate or Social Security card may also be required.

Online Services

Lucky for you, these days there are many services that can be completed online. It’s nice to have access to these services at the touch of your fingertips and not have to bring all the paperwork to the actual office.
