Checking the Status of Your SSD Claim
"My claim is taking forever..."
There are specific steps in the Social Security Disability process. When you are unable to work, and your financial obligations are causing you worry, the process can seem unbearably long. Understanding the process can help. When you submit your application it will be processed and evaluated at the local office. Medical records are gathered here and any other necessary documentation related to your claim. It will arrive at the
Social Security Administration (SSA) after approximately a month.
When you are able to check on the status of your claim it can help to relieve some of the worry and anxiety. A Reno Social Security disability lawyer from our office does routine follow-up on claims for our clients and keeps them updated on the status of their claim. After the initial 30 days processing time, there are two basic ways to check on the status of your claim:
- The Social Security Administration website will enable you to find out where your claim is in the process.
- You can call the SSA and speak with a representative who can provide you with detailed information about the status of your claim.
