Customer Question

I am a US Navy veteran who is disabled. Thankfully I get social security too. I got a note in the mail from the social security office that reads I will be getting a payment "soon." When exactly is that?

Hi,...Given the cutbacks of the last sevearl years and resource shortages at SSA over the last several years, that's a very open-ended question. (Hard to know)...In my 30 years experience in helping clients with Social Security, however, soon, in these notices, (even today) means a few days (not weeks)....By calling 1-***-***-****, you can use their automated telephone services to get recorded information and conduct some business 24 hours a day....But for this, LIKELY, you cannot handle your business through the automated services, bot one of the options is to speak to a Social Security representative between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday....(Generally, you’ll have a shorter wait time if you call during the week after Tuesday)...
