I had walked in at my local abingdon, maryland social security office and had my husband name remove off my sons check on july 26th,2010 they had handed me a letter saying it would take 30 days to be payee. Here it is september and i still have NOT recieved a check. Social security did not stop the payee getting it direct deposit until august. Why did they not stop it the moment i walked in? Here it is 3 months later and still no check. Now they tell me i will recieve the check in october...so now what about the 3 months that I had missed? And why on earth did they NOT stop it at time i walked in on the 26th of july?
