Hi Myra, can you clarify? Applications for Social Security do not include Part A, nor B. I presume you are saying that you applied for Part A (Hospitalization) and now you want Part B, the part that is not free, right?

Did you mail it certified r.r.r.? Or only regular mail. I.e. do you have proof you mailed it?

I have part a and applied for part b , the part that is not freeusing regular mail. I followed the instructions which did not include using certified mail. Should I reapply and send it certified?

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Stephanie O Joy, Esq replied 1 year ago.

The instructions don't require you use certified mail - but if your mail didn't get there, your case will never be processed. If that happens, and you want to argue the point and say but hey, I sent it and you lost it, you have no proof, and so no coverage could go retro to when you wanted it because you could never prove it. So it certified required to process your application? No. But if they don't receive an application, logic and practicalities say you lose. If I were you, I'd probably go in person IF I want it to apply as soon as possible. If you can't travel, then yes, certified mail rrr or UPS.

OK, I was able to eek this out before the next appointment after the first was cancelled. I have attached a word document, only because typing here as I jump back and forth between sources leaves a big risk for what I type to be deleted in a glitch, so I did it in word and saved and now attached. But if you can't open it, I can likely cut and paste its substance here, so let me know!
