Who Does This?

Who waits days, or even weeks to send out a time-sensitive letter? The Social Security Administration, that’s who. Social Security decisions have strict time limits to file an appeal. When every day matters, it’s disappointing to receive a letter dated July 12, 2019, when the envelope indicates it was not postmarked until July 24, 2019.

Always save envelopes and letters from SSA. This is one of at least eight letters this month where the postmark is several days after the date on the actual letter.
