How Do I Check The Status of Claim?

If you applied for benefits, you can check the status of your application online.

Your application status shows:

  • The date Social Security received your application;
  • Any requests for additional documents;
  • The address of the office processing your application; and
  • If a decision has been made.

If you receive an error, it may be because:

  • You entered an incorrect Social Security number or confirmation number;
  • You did not complete the application; or
  • Social Security made a final decision on your application more than four months ago.
