It’s actually not a check anymore, it’s a direct deposit. And this morning, when I checked with the bank, there was no deposit. I’d been cut off.
Now to painfully honest, I have said to myself, on more than one occasion, that if I stopped getting my monthly deposit, that life just wouldn’t be worth living any more – I planned on shuffling off the old mortal coil, as it were – take the big swan dive off the Coronado Bay bridge, or something of it’s equivalent.
But, before all that, I went to the Social Security office to see what was up. Come to find out, I was due for a review of my status, and they couldn’t contact me – I never check the mail cause I never expect anything, and my phone’s been cut off. So, they held up my check until I contacted them. Funny how quickly people get in touch with social security when their money doesn’t show up as usual.
When I got called back to the office of the reviewer, things were straightened out rather quickly, the review was conducted, my benefits were reinstated, and they cut me a check for this month.
Now I have some money in my pocket, and I can get something decent to eat. There shouldn’t be another review until next year.
