Re: I Just Need to Vent

May I make a small suggestion..

Play down the 'I'm going on vacation'. It doesn't bode well for someone who's making a disability claim. I wanted to go on a cruise, take a break and get away from all this crap while I was waiting and waiting -- and if you've ever been on a cruise, you know that there is NOT ONE FINGER to lift. You literally live in luxury. Everything is done for you.

My atty nearly had a stroke! Concerned that the court would take that as I can't work but I can go on vacation and party.

So I just would say going out of town - IF you must give them any info regarding that at all. Otherwise, leave it out.

Re: I Just Need to Vent

I was thinking the same thing I mean it wasn't to long that someone was caught on facebook vactioning and maybe it was a workman cop case but you never never know. And I think what youtoo1955,is right also. Take care this is a long process I have read so many have to take the long road then again there are also people get approved quick it just the luck of who looks at your case and your records. Take care

Re: I Just Need to Vent

I told them I was going to visit my sick grandmother. I never used the word "vacation" sorry if I confused you guys. I'm not stupid. I would NEVER tell them I was going on vacation. I am just BEYOND stressed with this entire process. I have no idea how to get these forms back to them again. I don't have a fax machine and this is ridiculous that they lose things.

Is there a library near you? They will have internet access,copy machines,fax and scanners for a nominal fee.Maybe a Senior Center?

Hope this helps

Re: I Just Need to Vent

Or drive it up to SSA office yourself, let them spend their time, copy paper & copier ink etc to make the copies of stuff they lost while you wait and to get your originals back.

Re: I Just Need to Vent

thanks. shes sending out another prepaid envelope and giving me an extension. I am jus going to resend it certified mail tomorrow. It's 12 pages. I have 2 young kids and to schlep them around is not easy. The older ones are in school but the younger ones it's a challenge getting this kind of stuff done. My computer doesn't even have a phone jack or I could fax it I wish I could've emailed it. I don't get how they could've lost it?

Re: I Just Need to Vent

I agree do not send it certified mail if you want some proof that you mailed it then do a delivery conformation. You will have proof you mailed it and the office got it. You can even get a tracking number if you want so you will know what day they got it. Both these are cheaper than sending anything certified mail and will more than likely give you the proof and peace of mind you are wanting. Any time a state or federal agency gets something certified it causes problems.

Re: I Just Need to Vent

why does sending it certified cause problems? What's the difference between that and dc? DC just says it was received. Certified says it was signed for.

The problem becomes who signs for what. Often no one wants to sign for things as then they become liable for the contents. Many offices have a policy that only certain people can sign for certified mail. If that person is not around or busy and does not sign something it goes back to the post office to be redelivered this can be two to four days later. Your letter can go back and forth for some time and in the meantime as far as your case worker is concerned you did not get the items in on time. Best solution call and ask if anyone can sign for certified letters or if they even accept them at all as some offices will not accept them at all. A certified letter can be refused.

Re: I Just Need to Vent

It could also be, that to have something signed for, may require a different address. Also, understand, the USPO if you get it signed or just confirmed, says they delivered an envelope. There is not any 'proof' of the contents.

I know that sounds really really cruddy, but I've actually had that happen to me before. USPO has signed paper, that party agree's they got said envelope.. but contents.. THATS another story.

There are fax machines that confirm recieved and show a portion of the paper you faxed. We had to use that at my job -- for 'our' protection (not the customer). In case the customer said they didn't get anything at the fax# they told us to fax the documents.
