Ok, I need to vent. I am so angry it isn't even funny. We are fighting right now with my husbands employer. here is the situation. We are trying to get her on benefits and apply for the reimbursement program he is entitled to. (about $5000 before taxes.)
Kerry traveled alone for Grace. Therefore we have to submit for a certificate of citizenship in order to have her new name on the social security card. I called the USCIS and MI is taking 18-24 mths to approve and send these out. So I went to the ss office and pleaded my case. They gave Grace a ss card but in her chinese name (Xin Jie) because she is not a full citizen yet.
We needed this in order to put her on the benefits and apply for reimbursement. Hi company will be ending the reimbursement program as of 12/31/08.
Our benefits people also said they need this # or they would n't pay for her benefits anymore after 12 mths. So here is the problem. They will not accept her chinese name on her ss card. Her chinese name is still part of her name and Kerry did legally adopt her. I am not sure what to do. Any attorneys here that can explain what we need to do? BTW, the lady in charge of this is claiming that there are two other people employed with them that traveled alone and did not need the C of C to get a new legal name on their ss card. Now we know this isn't true but what do you do??
I did call the USCIS and the SS office. They suggested I apply for welfare benefits. Are you kidding me???? I can get those for Grace but not employee benefits which we are entitled to???
I am fuming mad and really just want to go sit in a corner and cry. What else can go wrong????
