Coming Soon: Improved Check Your Application or Appeal Status Service

December 1, 2016 • By

woman on laptopIn December, Social Security will launch a new service for my Social Security account holders where the public can check on the status of an application for benefits or an appeal filed with us.

The service will provide detailed information about retirement, disability, survivors, Medicare, and Supplemental Security Income claims and appeals filed either online at socialsecurity.gov or with a Social Security employee.

The ability to check your application status will be available online to everyone who has or opens a secure my Social Security. You can open an account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

The service will provide important information about your claim or appeal, including, as appropriate:

  • Date of filing;
  • Current claim location;
  • Scheduled hearing date and time;
  • Re-entry numbers for incomplete applications;
  • Servicing office location; and
  • Claim or appeal decision.

If you are unable to open a my Social Security account, you can still call 1-800-772-1213 to check your claim status by using our automated system using the confirmation number you received when you filed your claim.

Providing our customers with more claim status information helps us meet our goal of delivering innovative, quality services to you and helping secure today and tomorrow.

    Hi. I finally had my hearing back in the fall of 2019. I was sadly (of course) denied, but my lawyer and I appealed it. Since then nothing now shows on the My Social Security website. It used to show me what was happening/dates, etc. Now, nothing. From the sounds of this article it was supposed to be a continuation of that system? I called our local office, and they said they can see the appeal in their system, but don’t know why I can’t see anything in my account. Thanks for any help.

    Will the confirmation number that was sent to me by social security ” check your claim status” also let me set up a “my account”?? I am still unable to set up a “my account”. PLEASE help, I would like to set up a “my account”.

      Hi Carla, thanks for your question. The confirmation number has nothing to do with setting up a my Social Security account. We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulties in creating an account. Please check out our Frequently Asked Questions web page on details related to creating and managing a my Social Security account. We hope this helps.
