      I have a debilitating health problem. I am currently living in the Philippines. It seems there are very many problems and a great amount of incompetence when dealing with the SSA in the Philippines. One problem is he SSA in PA sent a second request for 7162 yearly report. The SSA claims they never received my first 7162 form that I already sent in a long time ago. I already sent in the second request as well.
      I received my second request now (December 2018) in the Philippines, but the 7162 form I received was dated beginning of October 2018. It took 2 months to get to me through the mail, so I guess that means it will take 2 months to get back to the SSA in Pennsylvania in the mail. A round trip total of 4 months. The mail in the philippines is noted for its slowness and for being corrupted. Will this slowness cause a problem for me in any way or get my benefits cut off?
      I received the first 7162 form in end of august of 2018. The form was dated June 2018 showing it took 2 months to get to me. I sent it in to SSA in PA, but they claim they did not get it.
      Before I ever received any requests from the SSA for the 7162, I downloaded the form, filled it out, and sent it to my caseworker in the Philippines. The caseworker claims she sent it to them with other forms I needed to fill out at that time. I am guessing the SSA is saying they never received that form either since they keep sending me forms.
      In either case, the SSA in the U.S. embassy of the Philippines is still part of the U.S. government even if the caseworkers are filipinos, therefore they received my 7162 since my caseworker confirmed receiving it. That shows I did my part. So what is really going on?
      I had all of the 7162 forms scanned and copied as backup for which I sent to my caseworker in the philippines via mail and via e-mail. I told her the problem and I asked her to inform SSA in PA. She claims she had done so and also electronically.
      It is very hard to find out anything one way or the other from the SSA because they make it very hard to do so. In the Philippines my caseworker will take many days or weeks to get back to me, then her reply has nothing to do with the topic I asked about. Other times she does not give complete info and I have to break it down over several emails or phonecalls over weeks to get a simple complete answer. I am always getting auto messages from her saying she will be out of office for that long length of time.
      All it does is add stress and worry to my already existing health problems and to my family as well. Can something be done to make life easier on a disabled person? Thank you for understanding.
