Hi, my name is ***** ***** I thank you for your inquiry. I have been practicing SS law full time for 10+ years and look forward to assisting you.

It sounds like someone at the SSA office dropped the ball, perhaps was outsick, or a prior phone conference when overtime. That said,
If you are applying for disability benefits, in my professional opinion, it is best to NOT do so directly with a person from SSA. I'd do it online or, even better, have a disability attorney represent. If you wish for an attorney, I will add an optional "additional services" button for you, so you can reach me privately for any additional questions or for attorney representation.
I hope this helps! My goal is to provide you with excellent and accurate service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me "excellent" when you are done. I look forward to assisting you in the future, should you have legal questions. Be sure to start future posts with "To Stephanie O Joy Esq., ONLY" if you want me to specifically answer it.
Sincerely, ***** ***** Joy, Esq.
