You need to ask the SSA to reissue that payment. I would put into writing, what has transpired, and mail it certified RRR to the SSA manager. Keep copies of that letter and proof of the SSA's receipt of same. I'd fax it to your local SSA office every 3rd day until I got resolution or at least word. Sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the oil. However, you will also want to stop asking for paper checks and either get a safe bank account for the moneys to go into or, if credit is bad, ask for a SS debit card. That way you don't have to worry about lost checks, which can also be the fault of the USPS.
