The SOCSO Waiting Game Starts..

This whole afternoon was spent in the General Hospital Eye Clinic. Sister received a letter from the SOCSO to get her eyes reviewed by the eye specialists there, to confirm that she is really incapable of working anymore. Whether she can have an allowance or not for the rest of her life will be based from these doctors' report, fit or unfit to work....

From 2.15pm, the waiting process started. My sis was led from one room to another, altogether three doctors did a check up on her eyes. Meanwhile, I have to wait outside, wanted to go in but forbidden to. So much so, while waiting, I fell asleep on the chair itself. I really slept cos I jerked up when my head went down... gosh... imagine the scenerio... a lady wearing baju kurung, holding an umbrella by her side, dozing off..... what a scene... (wonder my mouth was open or not!) Yucks! But who cares.....

At around 4pm, I left the hospital to get back to the office. My sis was still waiting for the 3rd doctor's checkup. Well, I hope she will get her SOSCO allowance... it really helps in the long run... few hundreds is still money....

  3. barb:no.. they r not trainees, cos they are panel docs for this socso.. without their report, they wont pay my sis..



    cleff: no choice, have to go there, cos socso doesnt trust private docs.. they rely on hospital docs to certify.. so have to wait..

  16. If she is entitled for SOCSO allowance, she will definitely get it. Let's pray for her so she doesn't need to wait for too long.
