View Full Version : Status Query, Take Two

So I status query fulls and partials after 3 months. If I don't get a response to a status query, a) should I assume anything from this, and b) how long until I should status query again? In the past I waited 3 months again, but I'm wondering if I should do it a little earlier in case the SQ was lost or ignored for other reasons (went to the wrong folder or the agent was too busy and never got back to it or whatever). Then again, I don't want to look pushy.

Nathan Bransford's take on this is that for fulls and partials once 60-90 days has elapsed you query once a month until you get a reply.
