This year I got a divorce and did not get my mail, Soc sec had sent a letter that I did not get for a medical review, they stopped my payments as a result of this. It is June and my payments stopped in March. One month ago I went to the Local Social Security office and provided them with the information they needed, as a result they told me that I should start receiving payment soon. It has been one month and I still haven't started to receive payment again or received mail to inform me of a new appointment for a medical review. Is this a big deal? are they going to make me go through the whole process? When I call the 800# all they can tell me is that it is review. I am going back to my local office tomorrow, but I was wondering if anyone had been through this? do I need an attorney? Help I need to receive this asap, I have no income.
