Trying to iron out the difficulties I got myself into by being robbed yesterday. I have been on the phone and internet. Social Security has been the biggest pain, I tried their on line system to change my address and get a new card, but the system just wouldn’t accept my information. I called the SS telephone number and after listening to the usual announcements waited on line for an hour till a very nice man came on and took my information and said I might get a new Medicare card in four weeks! Yikes! I hope I don’t need it in that time. The easiest organization to work with was the Army. Once logged in on their site I went to the section that had the information about direct deposit change the information and it was done! Simple, clear and quick. My Civil Service Check I have exchanged information with the Office Of Personnel Mgt. and have yet to hear from them. I still have to call Social Security again to change the direct deposit information there. I wonder if I will have to wait another hour? Blue Cross Blue Shield on the other hand was easy to deal with and they said I would have a new card in ten business days or less.
I still have to sort out what DMV wants back in South Dakota, I may have to give them a call to get the list of docs needed. I’ll just have to wait and see.
I still have this nasty cold thing going on and that adds to the misery. It should be over in a couple of days if it is a cold. I’ll be glad to say good-bye to it enough already with the sneezing, coughing and crappy feeling.
