I just wanted to provide an update to this situation. I actually called SS's 866 number and spoke to someone who helped get the process moving. Turns out my email was hacked. I contacted SS using a different email. The problem was compounded when, having posted several requests for help on this forum about a problem with my email, no one responded and nothing was done. SS said they were going to look into why no one responded to me from this forum. SS will be reissuing my Sept. payment next month.😬 I am not sure this forum does anything good for contributors anymore.
