SSDi states it is still

SSDi states it is still processing the medical portion of my claim and it’s been since 10/2019. Is that a good thing or bad thing since it’s taking so long?

So I applied 3-25-20. About a

So I applied 3-25-20. About a week ago my account said a medical decision has been made and we are working to process your benefit application. Then yesterday I logged in and I clicked on the link that says decision made, and it said a decision has been made and we will send a letter with a detailed explanation. Also my account now has all types of estimates and it says you have enough work credits. Your benefit amount would be $××× if you were disabled today. Why are all these SS estimates on there when they weren't before? I guess I'm denied since the link didn't say approved??

Hi Faith,

Hi Faith,

The letter you should be receiving soon will explain if you were approved or denied!

A Decision Has Been Made On

A Decision Has Been Made On Your Hearing Request

Your claim for Disability benefits has been denied. A notice has been sent to you with a detailed explanation of the decision.

Hi Myka,

Hi Myka,

I am sorry to hear that. Luckily you have the ability to appeal a decision by the SSA. If you are not already working with an attorney, I would highly recommend connecting with one here (https://www.disability-benefits-help.org/form/free-disability-evaluation). Working with an attorney can greatly increase your chances of success.

it does not say if denied or approved but yesterday it did not show my estimated benefits amount and when i click on the download your statement it shows my date of birth does this indicate i was probably denied?

I would not read too much into this status, you will not be able to know for sure until you receive the notice. Best of luck!

I was denied Social Security

I was denied Social Security (Disability) but still waiting on SSI (Disability). If they denied SSD am I to assume I will be denied SSI?

Hi Mark,

Hi Mark,

There are two different sets of criteria used for SSDI and SSI. SSDI deals only with your condition and work history. SSI is based on financial need. I would not assume that a denial of one means a denial of the other.

I'm 55 with degenerative

I'm 55 with degenerative arthritis, had a double knee replacement back in 2011, know it's in my hands and my feet have problems. I've applied for SS Disability it's in for quality review, what do you personally think my chances are in receiving SSD.

Hi Kim,

Hi Kim,

Arthritis is a qualifying condition, so as long as you meet the Blue Book listing and have enough work credits, you may qualify for SSDI.

Website says A medical

Website says A medical decision has been made and we are proessing your benefit appliation. So I called them and was told I have been found to be disabled but couldnt tell me if i as approved. Any thoughts?

Hi Rhonda,

Hi Rhonda,

The SSA may now be looking to see if you meet the other requirements. For SSDI, this would be having enough work credits and for SSI you will need to be within specific income limits.

My ssi portion is gone under

My ssi portion is gone under my name. It use to say initial and processing.

My social security disability still say processing but determination is still under review. So is this a good thing?

Thank you!

Hi Cat,

Hi Cat,

It means that your claim is still being processed to see if you qualify for disability benefits. I could continue to monitor this to make sure the SSA does not request any more information!
