It's been ten fucking days

Since I mailed a registered letter to a city 300 miles away. It's still in transit. My cobra payment is in there

I am so stressed right now. Why is everything so fucking hard now? This should be a no brainer

2. I am sorry you are going through this

If you sent a check, could you cancel the check and call the company and Pay your cobra payment over the phone?

Or pay it online ?

3. Just A Second Thought...

What of sending a 'second' payment wrapped within a letter of explanation in a plain envelope with the proper address(ing) information and a return receipt request (?).

And perhaps (in this way) if the first payment was to be received (by them), then your second payment might serve as the 'next' payment (sort of, in advance).

Just a second thought...

4. You should have a tracking number

Contact the recipient and give them the tracking number so they can be in on the adventure, and you can establish that you're making a bona fide effort to get your payment to them.

5. Frustrating, isn't it?

I once sent a Registered, Return Receipt letter to a doctor's office right next to the Post Office. You could see the building through the PO window! It took a full seven days before it was delivered, even though I had to walk past the building to get back to my car. This was prior to DeJoy coming on board...it's probably worse now.

Can you contact the agency handling your COBRA to advise them "the check is in the mail"? Since it was Registered, do you have a receipt you can FAX or e-mail to them to prove you mailed it? Maybe that will buy you some time.

Good luck!

8. Don't sweat it, postmark is your friend/good faith proof?

If you haven't called the cobra about it yet, I would.

9. I have Media Mail that gets across the nation in less time.

What does the USPS tracking say? Usually pretty accurate.

13. And why the eff is DeJoy still in power?

Getting rid of DeJoy would be a simple thing the Biden admin could do to ramp up Dem enthusiasm before the midterms. Yo, White House: JUST DO IT!!!

15. Thanks

Calling cobra company is a run-around, hit and miss experience.

16. We always took the US Postal Service for granted...until we didn't. We had the best in the world and

all we could do was bitch (oops, there goes that word again) about it. Now we really have something to bitch about and few at the top even care. There was a day when they did.

17. Everything is falling apart

I truly feel that. Except for Discover cc, customer service is done. The bank can no longer mail me check registers due to... covid.

You have to go to a bank

18. I never mail anything with a postage stamp now

First of all, I hardly mail anything any more. But when I do, it's always in a Priority Mail envelope and I get a tracking number when I mail it. The Postal Service has never let me down, and they've never failed to deliver in 2 days.

Sticking something in the mail without a tracking number - well, I'd never do it for something important and urgent.
