This month Social Security launched a new service for “my Social Security” account holders so that they can check on the status of an application for benefits or an appeal.
This service provides detailed information about retirement, disability, survivors, Medicare, and Supplemental Security Income claims and appeals, 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.
The ability to check an application or appeal status is available online to everyone who has or opens a secure “my Social Security” account.
This account can be opened at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
