Title: SSA-455 on line Submission - How long does it take to process.
Post by: videonitekatt on June 25, 2022, 01:20:22 pm
Was just wondering - got the SSA-455 short form summited on-line with no problems in the 14th  - how long is the average these days to it to be processed and get a reply-decision-next step. (and keep in mind the 20th was a federal holiday observed) Being a Low with a score of 0047 not to concerned about a full CDR this time around.

What's been noticed as the average the last few months?

Seems like nobody could bring it down to small variances like a holiday because of so many competing variables.

2022 online mine took about 25 days.

A similar post to this a lot of people seemed to get a response at/before 30 days.

👍🏻

In June 2021, it took 39 days for my short form submitted online. Just in case that helps you at all.

That's not bad, considering it was during the pandemic. I've read the average is about 30-40 days, just wanted to see what the average was among our fine members here.

I submitted my short form online this year.

Last time I filed it by mail, it took over one year to return.

I'm surprised I'm still alive.  My annual medication costs exceed $400k

Will update once completed.

Hi STA . Good to see you are still around. Wow, that's an unreal Annual Medication cost! I hope you get some good help with that. I know you've had a lot of sickness. I figured you might have aged out of receiving another CDR (Whatever age that is). Some say you receive the last one at age 58, some 60, some say it's fair game up until your normal Retirement date.

 If you don't mind saying, what is your current age? The reason I ask is I am currently 62 and am due a CDR in October, unless I have "aged-out" , so to speak.

Take good care of yourself as best as you can.

 Good to see you still posting and kicking!

Hi, Pixie,

Nice to see you are well and almost "aged-out".

I'm 55 on paper, but Mother Nature says 85.  Just when you think you've had it all, something else pops-up with health-wise.  I spend a good deal of time dealing with billing, insurance and medication issues these days.  The system of healthcare is exhausting and senior/disabled-friendly.  I've still got skillz, tho.

For those receiving MEDICARE benefits:  Medicare will only pay for ONE mobility device every 5 years (wheelchair, rollator, etc).  No exceptions.  It is prudent that if you begin having mobility issues and you suspect you'll need a fancy motorized wheelchair down the line, purchase or get a donated rollator or push wheelchair in the interim.  VFW, Fire Stations, Subsidized housing buildings and local thrift stores often keep a closet of donated mobility items that they give away.  A new rollator costs around $100-$250.  Doing so will save your Medicare Mobility benefit for when you need the expensive, fancy motorized wheelchair.

That's All,

(Brining this response here since It's my original thread of the subject)

Got through to the local office his morning (7/11/22)- on a Monday Moring rather promptly (I'd say about 10 minute wait! and It's a major suburb of a major city!) Latest is it's still being processed that the offical date was July 8th - it took from being summited electronically on June 14th to July 8th to be put from one system to another to get from submission to processing I guess. But so far, everything is in order, no notices or anything. I don't think it might have been seen by a "real" Person. I'm a Low at 0047

Got FANTASTIC customer service - and on a Monday morning, too. They subjected I contact the local office again for any updates - guess the is a good thing. We know they are running 30-45 days on these things in average. And she did say the holiday Did disrupt things.

Oh, I do dread being a 5% and having to do a SSA-454. ("Long Form")  (As I've mentioned 3 Psychiatrists in 2 years, a change to and then a return of one of my key diagnosis. UIt's more crazy than I am :) )

Short Form CDR online processed in 5 weeks.  It's quite the improvement over the last one which went well past 52 weeks.  Thanks, computer!  AI is everywhere.

FYI, long-form CDR paperwork is mailed in a large (9 x 12) envelope rather than a standard letter-sized one.

Got mine in today on the 23rd,(LATE mail delivery on Saturdays - imagine how nerve racking this has been when it showed up in my Informed Delivery last night!) and it was dated the 20th. 

So 40 days for when I summited it to receiving it in the mail, so the date of the letter was the 20th, so 37 days it took them. Not bad, with two federal holidays between the 14th of last month and the 20th.

Now, how long should I wait to contact SS for an updated BPOY?

I was able to just call the 800# and ask when my next review date would be/what cycle I was on. I think I called a week or so after getting my benefit continuation letter from my LONGform review. I really wanted to know since I had been MIE and on less than a 3-year review cycle prior to this. But after the longform they switched me to a 3-year review cycle (per the 800#, which also happened to be correct). I didn't bother calling to ask after my next review which was a short form. I was content assuming I'm still on a 3-year review cycle.

I called my local office today, got right through, needed clarification again.  I mailed the 455 form out on june 8 and did online form July 11.  The gentleman told me my deferred letter is dated to go out Wednesday July 25th.  So, 14 days for online submissions and 55 days for mailed in form.  And never do a mail in than an online submission later.  The worker told me it caused a lot of confussion for the workers.  I got lucky.
