Didn’t receive my social security check today straight deposit
This is terrible customer service at its best. I’ve been going through the motions for a month trying to get a social security card. They’ve sent back things twice saying they aren’t the right things. As of today, they have my original marriage certificate, birth certificates for my children, ID cards for my children, my drivers license, my social security card and my children’s report cards (ALL ORIGINALS)! I asked if they could give me my documents back in the parking lot or anything because I have an appointment with Secretary of State that I made at the beginning of June. That appointment is this Thursday. It’s Tuesday. They said “no we will mail them”. Why? I’ve been going through these motions all of July. Why would you initially not give me my documents knowing how hard it is to get appointments with any place these days? It’s heartless, cold and a power trip. It only takes one choice to be a good person and do the right thing. It’s too bad that some people just don’t get it. Note: They’ve has my documents for over a week. Who can actually go without their drivers license or ID for longer than a week. It makes no sense. If they can’t open the doors to appointments and people, they need to come up with a better system. No one should have to go through this!

How long would it take to get by mail my Disability Benefits Award Letter?
An award letter, AKA award notice, is what shows that a claim for benefits has been approved.
The Award letter is usually mailed to the recipient within a few months of Social Security approving their benefit application.
The Social Security office does not have an established deadline for mailing the award letters. Some claimants will get their letters even after Social Security has issued their first benefit payment or earlier than that.
The wait is longer if your case was decided on a hearing.
