Ok, bro-in-law came and picked me up at 9:15 AM, drove 45 mins to Anderson to what used to be the SS Office which is now a Medical Clinic and had to call the SS Office to find their new location and found it next to the National Guard Armory.
Went in, took a number which was 84, the person being served was 81. Surprisenly not alot of people in today (maybe it's the weather, it's COLD out there today) waiting in line. Being in a SS Office like I used to remember when I first applied for SSI at the age of 14 while in Center on Deafness school was like waiting for a new DL and Plates in a BMV office. But not today it wasn't.
The wait time was 30 minutes to talk to somebody which wasn't too bad. BUT, the paperwork was horrendious. About 50 pages of forms for me to fill out. OWIE!!!
Then came verbal questions about my backgound history ranging from medical to work history.
All in all, we went through all this in 1 hour and half with this guy.
Then he tells me that it would be about 3-4 months before he could make a decision whether or not I would be granted to receive SSI.
Also I am told that I will be receiving mail with instructions on where to go and have my hearing test done in order to make deteriminaton whether I am eligiable(s?) for SSI benefits.
So, this has been a fun and interesting day. NOT!!!
Aside that, after we left, bro-in-law treated me a meal from McDonalds which helped make up for the horrible day I had to go through.
