It says that my application is under review and that a medical decision has been made? Is this a good thing or a bad
It's nothing to worry about. It is common procedure when applying for benefits.
Hi Mary, did you get approved or denied?
I received the same message when I check the Social Security website that day I called which is today 1/18 I believe and was told that I was approved but couldn't give me any more information so I hope that helps be positive
Hang in there! It may take a while for the SSA to process applications.
I had the same thing. . . I got letter today and was approved. . Have to go to ss appointment to determine if I qualify for the financial part. .
Linda, can you tell me what the address is that the letter came from? I spoke to a representative almost two weeks ago and she said I should be receiving a letter from out of state
You can contact the SSA again to see if they have more updated information.
I did call again today. She said I should be getting a call soon. The reason why it's been a little bit is because my case rep has been out of office.
Best of luck!
I have been checking the status on line and received the same information. Status is still in review as of today. and a medical decision has been received. I finally received letter and it states that a decision was unfavorable. What would be my next step
You can appeal the decision if you were denied. If you chose to, I would do it as soon as possible.
I called the ssa office and they told me that my claim is closed,does that mean they made a decision didn't understand what that means
It could mean that they have made a decision regarding your case.
What did it mean. Did you get approved
Appeal Under Review
A medical decision has been made and we are working to process your decision. A Social Security Representative may contact you directly if we need any additional documents or information
what does this mean approved or denied
Neither, it means they're still working on your decision. Best of luck.
Had same thing and I received letter today that I am approved
Linda, how long did it take you after getting the update that a medical decision has been made that you received a letter of approval?
Jen, did you get approved? Or denied?
Did you get an approval Jen K?
My reconsideration was filed 1/4/17 and I was advised 5/24 that it was approved and picked up for quality review.
My attorney told me to remain 'cautiously optimistic'. As of 7/11/17 status:
A medical decision has been made and we are working to process your decision. A Social Security Representative may contact you directly if we need any additional documents or information.
How likely is it that the decision has been over turned? And, how long until I will receive notice?
Thank you in advance!
We really could not say as disability determinations rely on a number of factors that we would not have access to. I really could not say when you would receive notice, but in may be in the next few months.

I just would like to know the status of my Disability SSI claim? Ive already filed through my SSI office here in my town. I'm just worried about being evicted from my home soon!
You may want to contact your local SSA office regarding this, you can find a listing of contact info for SSA offices here:
I too was about to be evicted and when I talked to my claims rep he put a rush tag on my claim. I turned it in on June 2017 and I just got the approval
Congrats on getting approved! Best of luck.
THIS IS SO MESSED UP ,MY APPEAL IS TWO YEARS IN - I have two young children and we are going to loose our home as well - my attorney said there was no rushing it unless we are actually homeless?!?! That does not seem right???!!!!
I am so sorry to hear that. Just make sure that you have all of your necessary paperwork in order. Wishing you nothing but the best.
How often should you check your disability application online?
There is no right or wrong answer it really is whatever is most convenient to you.
Best of Luck,
Checking on my claim

What does your appeal for SSI DISABLITY BENFITS IS BEING PROCESS DOES THAT MEAN I GOT APPROVED
I can't say for sure, but it means that you should be hearing back from them soon.
A medical decision has been made and we are working to process your decision. A Social Security Representative may contact you or your appointed representative directly if we need any additional documents or information. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO LET ME KNOW DECISION?
This means that they are processing your decision, it doesn't mean anything in regards to approval or denial of your benefits claim. Processing times can vary as all cases are different. Hang in there!
Did you get an approval?
David, were you approved & how long did it take after this message were you informed? Thanks.
Hello can I get a new copy of the SSD approval statement indicating the amount of funding I'm approved for monthly emailed to me.
You may want to contact the SSA regarding this, we do not have this information as we are not affiliated with the SSA or the federal government.
I had my hearing in June,my lawyer said the judge made a decision and we just have to wait. I checked my claim online and it says it's processing. Is that good? If I were denied there wouldn't be anything to process just a denial letter. This is my 3rd claim and my 2nd time before a judge. How do they expect people to survive? I'm more nervous now then before I knew the decision was made. Too bad they can't let us know yes or no then process the paperwork!!!
A "processing" claim status does not indicate an approval or denial. Hang in there!
