Every year in the United States, 2.5 million people apply for Disability Benefits from the Social Security Administration. Of this number, 60 percent of applicants are denied the benefits they seek. Some of the people that are denied will decide to begin the appeals process which includes paperwork that must be completed and sent back to a local Social Security Administration office. He must then wait for the decision; however, an applicant does have the ability to check on the status of his appeal.

Methods of Checking Status

Contact your local Social Security Administration Office. This can be done by phone, or you can stop by the office and ask for the status of the appeal.

Contact the Disability Determination Service of the state in which you filed your appeal. This number can be obtained from your local SSA office. Speaking with the disability examiner assigned to your case may also be helpful in finding out the status of your appeal.

Call the toll free social security phone number. This phone number is 1-800-772-1213. Speaking to a representative on the phone is another way to check on the status of appeals and disability claims.
