How To Check Your Disability Claim’s Status After You Apply
If you already applied for disability benefits and want to check your claim’s status, call your attorney or the Social Security Administration (SSA) directly. In most cases, it takes 3-5 months to get a determination decision from the SSA. (If your condition’s on the CAL list, you may get an answer 30-90 days after filing your SSDI claim.) Regardless of whether your claim’s approved or denied, the SSA will notify you via mail at the address that’s listed on your claim. If your application for benefits gets denied, you still have 60 days to appeal the SSA’s decision.
You May Qualify for Legal Assistance
Preparing to apply for disability benefits? Filing your claim through a lawyer makes you 2x more likely to win benefits on your first try. In fact, most people who apply with legal assistance through our website qualify for $10,000 in lump-sum pay as well as monthly benefits. Those who apply on their own without legal assistance typically wait 18-24 months for their first disability payment. However, the SSA only approves less than 2 in every 5 disability applicants every year, on average.
