I'm so sorry, but you'll need to call the 1-800 number to re-schedule the appointment OR you can have the phone representative pull up your records and tell you what documentation you need to send to the local office to complete the application.

...

By calling 1-***-***-****, you can speak to a Social Security representative ... (Generally, you’ll have a shorter wait time if you call during the week after Tuesday) ... between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
