I applied for S.S. in December 7 th for my March Birth year.

Customer Question

I applied for S.S. in December 7 th for my March Birth year. Was approved in January and given details that it would start in April. In February I was mailed a letter from SS that they would be deducting some monies for child support. I tried in vain to work with the ex however I wound up getting a hearing for April 8 th. I withdrew my request for SS on March 8th, knowing that I would resolve the matter on April 8 th and that I could withdraw the request to not taking benefits on a form SS 795 which the SS office help me to file. The court ruling was in my favor and I withdrew my request to NOT take the benefits on April 8th on the form SS795. I received a call from SS on or about April 24th going over my request to withdraw my request to withdraw from taking the benefit and they made sure I wanted to take the benefit. Sime May 2nd, my case has been in the " payment" center. I found out that there is no "Payment" center. The SS people just refer the approval department as that reference to most likely placate people such as me. It is now July 21, I still have no answers other than annoyed and arrogant agents at the local office when I go down with my file.I had the 800 national line put an inquiry in on June 19 which I was told that I could expect an answer ( letter) within two weeks which later turned into 30 days. Well 30 days has passed. I have no letter. Local office says to wait and when I ask for a Mgr. they say that they're all in a meeting and that one will call me. Of course, that never happens. My question is... Is there a legal time limit on when one removes his request for withdrawal to when he should get some sort of response? April 8th was the removal date which I had them copy my withdrawal of the withdrawal and stamp for my records. It will be almost 110 days next week without any response other than the call mid April to verify my intention.

Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for using Just Answer.

I am really sorry to hear about your situation. I am sorry to state that there is no legal time frame prescribed but given your time taken / spent by you, it is seriously high time that they should have reverted back.

I think you should hire a local attorney to help you through this. There are lawyers who would offer you free consultation and access your case.

Further from the following link, you would also be able to search for such lawyers countywise, state wise, etc.

I am sorry to have suggested you this as you will have to be hardnosed dealing with them. As there is no legal time frame for them to respond.

I am sure this would help.

You may please leave a positive rating if this helps as that is the only way we receive credit for assisting you. Alternatively feel absolutely free to revert with more queries if you have of if I have missed out on any aspect of your question.

Warm Regards
