Checking the Status of Your SSD Claim
Stay in the Loop with Disability Action Advocates
The Social Security Administration pays benefits to over 60 million Americans each month, and their offices receive millions of new applications every year. With so much traffic moving through the system, applications often get stalled in backlogs, and administrative mistakes are common.
The regional Social Security office may have information about your claim status, and you can call or visit in person to make an inquiry. You will be able to learn at what stage the Social Security Disability process your claim has reached, but you will not be able to find out whether Disability Determination Services has decided to approve your application. It normally takes about a month before the SSA receives all the information relevant to your claim, including all pertinent medical records. If you learn that any items are missing, you can contact your doctor and take any action that might help speed up the process.
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 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 advocate from our office does routine follow-ups 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 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.

Rather than waiting to be notified, we recommend that you follow up around 30 days after submitting your claim to the Social Security Administration. Sometimes additional information or clarification of information may be needed and they can advise you at this time. This is the best way to save time.
