As of September 9th, I'm still waiting for confirmation that my 500 medical form was received.

To make a long story short, I filed for TDAP with Social Services (Hilton Heights District in Baltimore Maryland) on June 12th, 2020. It's September 9th, 2020 and my application still hasn't been processed. Over the last 3 months I've heard, "No one is doing anything with your case", "Your case is just sitting here", "I've put in a work order", "You're going to receive benefits within the week", "You don't need to submit a 500 medical form, your previous one hasn't expired", "They need a 500 medical from you", "We have quadruple the mail we used to get, it will take us awhile to find your medical form." I've spoken to over 8 different people about my case (Leah, Mr. Cooke, Allen, Mr. Chambers, Ms. Kennedy, Ms. Washington, Lisa, Brandy, Mr. Miller) and those are just the names I can remember. I've been nothing but polite, courteous and understanding. Especially considering the disarray that the entire world is in right now, due to the pandemic. I went as far as to not file a complaint against them before because it looked as though they were finally going to do something with my application after 2 months, only for them to make me regret my decision weeks later. I'm not sure about other states, but in Maryland it is illegal to sell your food stamps, yet I see a lot of people doing it. I didn't quite understand it before, but I do now. With the way Social Services operates, it's no wonder people are resorting to that option.
User's recommendation: Never second guess filing a complaint. Some have noticed it's the only way these people will do their job. If you can file with the NASW, do so. Write a email to the Governor of your state. If possible, file a complaint with the BBB as well.
