After being rudely stood up by SSI on my scheduled phone conference I called them yesterday. The caseworker refused to speak with me and had someone relay the message that she'd call me today at 10:30am. She did indeed call promptly at 10:30am but it was a very short conversation as although she admitted she's had our faxed pay stubs for sometime, she hasn't at all worked on our case. I asked why she didn't call as scheduled - she didn't even offer me an apology but that she was double booked. And no one could bother to call me to reschedule? There were no asset/income questions asked as she stated she'd previously do, said that I would get notification in the mail once again of Noah's new payment and any new over- payments. I feel like I am going round and round with SSI. I am just continuously getting yanked around. I asked to speak to the manager, and of course I get transferred to a line that rings into eternity... no voice mail - just constant ringing for 8 minutes until I hung up. I call and get resistance when I ask for the manager and get simply transferred to voice mail. I left a message with my frustrations about their lack of good business practices, I doubt I will hear back. I think they really anticipate that you'll just stick your tail between your legs and go away. That is not an option. I have to fight on for Noah. They can continue to put me through whatever and I will not go away. I just genuinely wish they would finally fix whatever is going on and get it right once and for all. So I await more paperwork from SSI, and likely more appeals and requests for informal conferences that I will need to fill out to challenge them. We are no more ahead than we ever were.
