The post office receipt showed my application signed for in Mandeville on Sept 3.
The Bank statement showed they cashed my check Sept 4.
The REC shows it being accepted on Sept 10th.
When I called on the 9 th, I was told that applications were processed in the order they were received and that mine was on the reviewer’s desk but very near the top. The next day it showed up on the web page as being received.
Are they holding applications until your check clears? If I used the pay.Gov, would the wait have been less. If they open your package and take out your check, why don’t they consider it received instead of making you wait a week wondering if it got lost in the mail. Things that make you go Hmmmm.
