Improved Check Your Status Service
This month, Social Security is launching a new service to check the status of an application for benefits or an appeal for those who have a "my Social Security" account. You can open an account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
This service provides information about retirement, disability, survivors, Medicare, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims and appeals filed either online or at your local Social Security office. The new service will provide the following information about your claim or appeal:
•· Date of filing
•· Current claim location
•· Scheduled hearing date and time
•· Re-entry numbers for incomplete applications
•· Servicing office location
•· Claim or appeal decision
If you do not have a "my Social Security" account, or are unable to open one, you may call 1-800-722-1213 to check your claim status. When you call to check your claim status, make sure that you have your confirmation number that you received when you filed your claim.
