    • We attempt to resolve all claims promptly, but there may be delays due to the volume of pending cases in your area. However, you have “protective filing” from the date of your application and benefits will be paid retroactively.
      Please continue working with your local office. If you are unable to visit your local servicing office, you may call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213. Representatives are available Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you will have a shorter wait time if you call later during the day or later in the week. Thanks.

  5. I spoke to someone earlier in Social Security office, checking on status of my 1st Social Security check (I will be retiring Oct 5, 2018). Was told 1st ck to be received Nov 2018 (2nd Wed.), I thought I’d rec it Oct. Lady told me I was not marked to receive a Check for Sept. (which I turned 65 yrs). She said I could appeal that Sept. check to receive and would take approx 30 days. –At this time I would like to appeal to get the Sept. check as well (even if it’s rec’ in Nov). Let me know what I fill out. thank you. (new personal email below)

    • Hello Patricia. Social security benefits are paid the month after they are due. So, for instance, if you’re retiring on October 5th and want your benefits to begin with the month of October, you will receive your first benefit payment in November.
      Unfortunately, but for security reasons, we do not have access to personal records in this blog. If you need to make a change on your “retirement date” you will need to contact your local Social Security office as soon as possible. One of our representatives will explain your options. If you are unable to visit the local office, you can call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213, representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you will have a shorter wait time if you call later during the day or later in the week. Thanks!

  6. I filed for regular social security in Nov 2017 at the office in Lakewood Colorado and have heard nothing as of October 5 2018. What in the world is going on with social security that they cannot reply in over 11 months. I could Die tomorrow and not receive a penny I paid into for over 50 years.

    • Hello Sean. Generally, an application for Social Security benefits should not take this long. Unfortunately, but for security reasons, we do not have access to personal records in this blog.

  7. I filed for SSI on May 2013 my case file is presently at the Virginia headquarters as I was informed by my attorney. My understanding is that a decision must be made within a 18 month period which would in my case be up the beginning of January 2019 is there a way to personally find out information about my case filed. Would love any information or help thank you
