The Social Security Administration has launched 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 them.
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 account. 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.
