  1. Just like the rest of you I have not received my stimulus check. And yes every year I fill my income tax. And also reported to Social Security off my status. Finally I got this reply from one  of my inquiries.
    The Primary SSN has been locked because Social Security Administration records indicate the number belongs to a deceased individual.

    So now I am trying to get through to the SS and IRS by phone and secure email. But it looks like the government is close down everything. Even notify the Consulate in Guadalajara I'll just have to wait and see what happens. Maybe if I can get the government to notify my private life insurance company that I am dead, and  they pay me off at least I could enjoy my Death Benefits.

  2. I went to the IMSS hospital in Tlajomulco today for test. The doctor told me
    I should not wait for my results, she would save then and I could pick them up at my next appointment. So I went to the front desk to check on some other appointments. They told me all appointments after today have been canceled and only emergency will be handel at the hospital. They said this will last through May and maybe June. Now I have to go back to my local IMSS office to reschedule. If you have an appointment I would give it a second thoughts about going. And also the police roadblock were turning people away from Lakeside.

  4.  Hi Sandrita

     I called Social Security at there 1-800-772-1213. They said my wait was 45 minutes they were back in 20. They said they stopped payment on my check because they did not receive my SSA-7162 form. First time in 18 years they did not receive my SSA form from Mexico.

  5. Yes there are new rules concerning the IMSS renewal. No longer do you have the have your papers filled out in Chapala. You must go to Guadalajara with your paid papers from latest year. Also needed is your CURP number Passport or INM status and a utility bill for proof of address. All Must be original plus copies. You must present them in person and your picture will be taking at the desk. You can pick up your number on entering the building and they are located on the second floor when applying. My cost for this process was 7,700 pesos I am over 80 years old.

    Also new rulings in Chapala I was told I can no longer get a date for my next appointment at the desk. I will have to make a telephone call to schedule my next appointment. I hope there won't be mass confusion.

  6. I am looking for an inexpensive endoscopy.  I was diagnosed with probable peptic ulcer.  I checked with the 

    Ajijic Clinic and was told it would cost $15,000  but a friend who had one done there less than a year ago only cost her $5,000.

    Does anyone know where I can get this procedure at a reasonable price?

  7. I was told a couple of weeks ago by the young lady sitting in front of the secretary general office at city hall. To take all my paperwork, copies and original and my receipt of payment for the license, and come back Wednesday to the secretary general office. So today I want to Chapala to the office were you paid for your auto plates every year. Their i  paid for my drivers license renewal and they gave me my receipt. I decided to go to City Hall just to check on things. There she was checking people's paperwork and given then numbers. When she checked my paperwork, she told me on Wednesday go to Christine Park and not the Auditorium for my license. Being I live in Ajijic I will check out the Auditorium first and if there is no action there I will continue on to Christine Park.

  8. Two weeks ago I went to See the young lady in front of the General Secretary's office and asked 
    about renewing my drivers license. She told me to bring all my 
    paperwork in on June 7th. But she could not tell me where or when to finish the rest of the process. I tried looking on their website but nothing was posted
    Does anybody have any updated information about this subject. Thank you.
