    Expedited Reinstatement of SSDI & Provisional Payments

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? California.

    I just applied last Monday, September 13th, for an expedited reinstatement of disibility benefits. The guy at the SSA office told me I would receive provisional payments, up to 6 months, till a decision is reached on my case, which could take 2-3 months. I told him I don't have any income whatsoever right now, so he told me it would take 7-10 days for me to get my direct deposit from the day I applied. I'm really panicking right now because it's been a week already and still nothing. I've only got $3 left and have no money for the bus to get anywhere. Plus, I have to move by this Thursday and if I don't get my money by this Wednesday, I'll be homeless as of Thursday.

    I've tried calling the SSA guy at his office, but I keep getting his voicemail. I left him a message this morning. I sure hope he calls back because I'm getting extremely nervous about when I'm getting my check. I'm in Southern California. I called the national 800# and the woman told me she didn't see anything in the system, however, she said payments like that are controlled by the local office. So again, I have to wait to hear back from the SSA guy who is handling my claim.

    My question is, I visited the SSA office on September 13th. Today is September 20th. The local SSA office has all my paperwork since last week. I REALLY need my money NOW and don't know what to do to find out when exactly my money will go in my account (direct deposit)? What should I do??? Please help! How long does it normally take to get your first provisional payment once you've opened up a request for an expedited reinstatement in California? The SSA guy told me the funds I receive this month will be for August, and then I'll get another check on October 1st, which will be for September. Any advice?
