The trick is sending your info with a signature request.
I tried that last month and had zero problems for a change.

> The news is very encouraging.  About 3/4 of all Blind Pension cases have

> City area due to technical issues. However, Warren county is not yet up 
> and fully running so all contacts until further notice should go through 
> your local county office or the toll free phone number.
> If you call the phone center  now with a specific question about your case 
> they are now supposed to try and connect you with a first responder to 
> immediately handle your problem If they cannot reach a first responder 
> than they will take your contact information.
> Shortly annual reviews will be sent out 60 days before they are due in 
> hopes in solving reader issues. It will hopefully be possible in the near 
> future to fill out your review form online and print it yourself and mail

> and even scan in your documentation like  bank statements.
> By late Spring there should be a Robo Call system in place to notify you 
> when an Annual Review form or Adverse Action Notice is being mailed.
> The only thing that we may not be successful in for the short term is 
> having the review form have a clear title specifying it is for the blind

> This was a follow-up to our meeting on November 15,2013  and demonstrates 
> both the effectiveness of our advocacy and the ability of FSD to take 
> action when they hear a concern.
