    Well, I sent out the third packet today, estimated delivery by Monday the 11th. I hope that they won't fuck this one up, too, but so far I am not confident. Despite being dropped off early enough today to go out in the departing mail, the tracking status has not changed from "Accepted" which is usually not a good sign, in my experience.

    I admittedly didn't read the whole thread, but can't you just FedEx it instead?
    Still excited about 4th Edition!

    Nope. FedEx doesn't deliver to PO boxes in the US.

    Aaaaand, latest update: The delivery of the third packet of paperwork sent via Priority Mail, seems to have disappeared at the same office as the second packet. I could not make this shit up if I tried. As soon as the latest GoFundMe withdraw goes through (hopefully tomorrow), I get to send out a FOURTH packet. This time by Priority Overnight (1-day guaranteed delivery).

    I'm wondering if SSA gave you the right address? Or somebody in that post office hates you.

    Started an investigation with USPS. Have a supervisor file a complaint.

    Yeah, it's the right address. And I mailed from different post offices just in case!

    So, I updated my GoFundMe. The first and second packets of paperwork remain unaccounted for. And when I left the house this morning, so was the third. However, while I was standing at the post office, spending $23 that I could have used to pay down future expenses or something due to this bullshit, the third packet arrived at its destination (a day late). I didn't know this until I returned home, however. So, fuck. I just wasted $23 sending out a fourth packet via Priority Mail Express. Dammit. I am ready for this bullshit to be over.

    Mother#$@%#$! Spent an hour on hold with SSA. Now they are not only denying receipt of my Disability Update Report forms (despite two packets having been confirmed delivered, one of them SIGNED FOR), but telling me I sent it to the wrong address (you know, despite the instructions and the return envelope they sent me both having the Wilkes Barre, PA address clearly printed on them).

    FUCK THESE PEOPLE.

    After losing my cool and hanging up on the rep that told me that with a few choice words, I called back, waited another hour on hold, and spoke to a supervisor who told me that the rep I spoke to was entirely in error, had no idea what she was talking about, and has absolutely no idea how she arrived at the conclusion she did (specifically, the form that they had me mail back in is always sent to the Wilkes Barre, PA PO Box and nowhere else, ever, under any circumstances).
