Converting from Spousal to my own SSA

I applied in January, I was approved on May 10th. Attachment 38928
But all of a sudden it says 20210514_155303.jpeg[ATTACH]
Has anyone else converted from 1 type to another? Did it skip a payment?

Is there an approval letter on your online SS account page? They can take a few days to catch up. I just got my Medicare approved and the Social Security information disappeared for a few days until the approval letter with my Medicare number showed up.

Yes, probably worth a phone call.

I think it's all tied up in the fact that while drawing spousal you are considered a "dependent" and everything is under your spouse's SS number. I am also on spousal and I watched the SS website like a hawk (much like you) and I had that same 0.00 until after the first payment was made (under spousal). I think just a quirky way SS has for dealing with these things. The whole thing is weird. The process is not transparent, but it all worked out just fine. I'm sure yours will too.
