I'm unclear.

I've never been paid yet by AdSense, but I look forward to it soon. But first I'l like to clear up this PIN issue.

This is what my account says:
Your most recent PIN was generated:
Aug 23, 2005
To continue using AdSense, you must enter your PIN by:
Aug 23, 2006
You can request a new PIN on or after:
Sep 8, 2005

I haven't received any PIN number in the mail yet. What should I do? Do I have to request it to be mailed, even though they say they have mailed it?

Mine took about 3 weeks to be delivered here in the UK...

Just generate a new one, and if the old one arrives in the meantime, you can still use it.

Inquire -

Yes, I would recommend requesting a new PIN if the last one was sent out in mid-August. Make sure the mailing address in your account is correct before requesting a new PIN, just in case this has something to do with it. If you're a non-U.S. publisher, it could also take a bit longer for your PIN to arrive.

Lastly, if your original PIN arrives first it will still work (as already mentioned :) ).

My wife got her pin number in about a week and we're only 15 miles from the 'plex so only God, Google, and the USPO knows why it took so long and none of them are talking.

If you don't get it, like ASA said, ask them for a new one.

Try this PIN resend form letter:

"Dear AdSense PIN-heads,

Where's my PIN?

I'm waiting on PINs and needles!


<your name here>"

Ok, maybe write your own letter is better.
