Checking the Status of Your SSI Claim
Guidance from a Las Vegas Social Security Disability Attorney or Representative
In most cases, you can check the status of your social security application by simply creating an account and signing into the Social Security Administration website. Once you've logged in you will be able to see the following relevant items:
- The entry number for your online benefits application or online appeal
- The date your application or appeal was received
- The scheduled hearing date and time
- The claim or appeal location
- The status of the decision
If you find that it seems impossible to get the answers that you need, please do not hesitate to contact Disability Action Advocates. Our legal team has extensive experience navigating the Social Security process and is here to help you every step of the way.
Ways to Troubleshoot the Application Process
The Social Security Administration (SSA) pays more than 60 million applicants their benefits every month on top of millions of additional applications annually. With so many claimants in the system, mistakes happen and many applications can get stalled because of backlogs.
Your local SSA office can have information regarding your claim's status which can be obtained by calling or visiting in person. By doing so, you may be able to learn where your claim is in the Social Security Disability process.
However, the regional office will not be able to give you information on whether Disability Determination Services approves your application. This will normally take a month or more because the Social Security Administration will need time to receive relevant information, including your medical records. If during the process, you realize that an item may be missing, contacting your doctor can assist the SSA in speeding up the claim process.
