Social Security is always innovating and improving its technology to better serve the public. In an effort to meet its goal to deliver innovative, quality services, Social Security is improving how you can check the status of your benefit application online.

Placing the “Application Status” feature behind the “My Social Security” portal provides a secure service delivery channel that will allow the Agency to provide detailed status information without requiring a confirmation number.

The first service improvement will include status information for Social Security and SSI benefits initial claims and appeals, but future modifications will allow you to check the status of medical and non-medical redeterminations.

With the new Application Status, you will see:

  • the Re-entry number for in-progress online applications;
  • detailed information about the current status of the application or appeal;
  • the location where your claim is being processed
  • scheduled hearing information for appeals.
