Checking the Status of a Pending Social Security Disability Claim

May 13, 2016

SSD FormHave you filed a claim for Social Security Disability benefits? Are you still awaiting an answer? Many people who file Social Security Disability claims are often unsure of how to check the status of a pending case. If you need help, our Kansas City Social Security Disability lawyers at Peterson & Associates, P.C.™ can help you learn how to check the status of a pending claim.

The Social Security Administration lays out three ways that individuals who file a claim for Social Security benefits can check the status of their pending application.

First, you can call the SSA at (800) 772-1213. You can also check the local Social Security office near you. Finally, you can check the status if your pending claim online at the SSA website. Your application status will provide you with the date your application was received and the office where your claim is being processed. You can also see if more documents are needed from you and if a decision has been made.

It’s important to know that a large majority of first-time applicants are denied benefits. The chances improve for those who appeal an application denial. It is important to have someone on your side who knows the process and can help you put together the necessary information to obtain benefits.
