Karen, Wow! Aside from the rudeness, which I will ignore, Please read your URL address location. You seem to think you are or were interacting with the SSA. That is not so, and it concerns me.
You asked WHY they were not sending you a check. Rather than say, "gee, could be an SS goof", (which is certainly true and accurate much of the time), being the SS lawyer that I am, I was asking you all the information to eliminate what could be one of several reasons, so that we'd be left with the remaining accurate reason. Remember, you asked me for help, not the other way around. And, because you are unaware of the legal reasons the SSA would withhold, you failed to include all the details I asked about, as I sought to narrow your issue down.
I am not THE SSA. I am an attorney who works exclusively in the SS arena, and claimants and beneficiaries make up 100% of my client base - my legal practice, but also my voluntary time here to help others that may need it. Be clear on this. I can not (nor would I if I could) look up your private SS financial information, thank goodness! The SSA thankfully does not relinquish our private SS information to anyone but ourselves (and at times, an appointed representative, but I am not that to you, as that would likely require a retainer and my agreement, which I'd likely not be willing to provide - nor do I think you need that level of assistance (or cost) if you can exercise patience to get to your answer.) So, when you believe "you could look up my info if you was working for them" - my goodness, you are speaking with an attorney, not the SSA. I think you got a little lost when you were surfing the net. Please be more careful in the future.
That said, while we were getting close to determining WHY you haven't received benefits and IF it where curable so you could prospectively, your rush for a day trip to your local SSA office has putting a close to my sharing of my time with you, to solve your issue. Have fun at your local office. And I suggest a little bit of patience and manners may get your further with the front desk that the alternative. Good luck.
