    Forgot what I need to upload into RaDeX for DNI extranjero temporario renewal

    Today I became so confused with RaDeX I lost it. It would appear that with the extensions granted due to Covid -19, RaDeX just creates dead ends. I thought my 2nd renewal of DNI under Temporaria Extranjero would be doable, as I managed last year. Not so. Is RaDeX no longer operational?

    US recipients of SS payments

    Thanks, the IRS web page has an update that reads that SSI recipients will get their corona recovery payment without having to file. The IRS has amended their page today, since the page now reads differently from when I cut and paste it into BA Expats

    Customer service - lack of

    My Spanish is poor. Nonetheless, I managed to get a welded steel frame support made for a dryer (secaropa), and two sewing projects that were modifications of back packs to store and carry some photo gear. In all three instances, the level of execution was very good, the turnaround for the...
