2013/08/30: Hearing Things x2 COMBO
So, uh, apparently, by "within 30 days" they meant 3 days, and by "probably won't" they mean "did." So ... I got the state-level cash benefits back and I am financially stable once more, whee
See, what happened was, the basis of cutting off the benefits is that in July 2011, NH law changed to say that they can't give me money if I'm rejected twice by Social Security. However, one of my rejections happened before the new law came into effect, so they weren't supposed to count it and I shouldn't have been cut off in the first place. In other words, this was indeed a giant obnoxious tangle of red tape. Whew!
I've been feeling kind of moodswingish and tired all day because sleep was neither continuous nor sufficient, but this is definitely good news. It just goes to show: see what happens when you try a little optimism?
