Hi Jon,

Hi Jon,

You can be denied SSDI and approved for SSI. I would keep monitoring to see if you receive something in the mail regarding SSI. If this continues, you may want to visit your local SSA office (make an appointment first) to find out more on your claim.

i called social security

i called social security office to see if a decision been made for my son she said it’s pending then she also said they haven’t made a decision what do that means

Hi Roxy,

Hi Roxy,

It means that a decision has not been made on your claim, so you still have not been approved or denied. The SSA is still evaluating if you qualify for disability benefits.

I applied for both SSI and

I applied for both SSI and SSDI. I went for a hearing before ALJ and received my decision denying my SSI but I don't know if it includes a denial for SSDI also? Do you receive a letter for both?

Hi Ashley,

Hi Ashley,

Sometimes you can be denied for one and not the other. I would try checking your MySSA account or talking with your lawyer (if you worked with one). If you're still not sure, you can call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213! Best of luck.

I applied for ssi and ssdi in July of 2019. I call a couple of days ago to check on the status. It say pending...what does that mean

Hi Sharon,

Hi Sharon,

Pending means the SSA is still working on making a decision on your claim.

I was denied ssi but SSDI is

I was denied ssi but SSDI is still processing. I am so confused. Will I be denied SSDI since I was denied Ssi.

Hi Anita,

Hi Anita,

It's possible to be denied SSI but approved for SSDI. Both have the same medical requirements. They differ in technical requirements. For SSI, you need to be below an income limit while for SSDI, you need a specific number of work credits based on your age. It's possible that you exceeded SSI's income limits so you were denied. The SSA may be checking to see if you have enough work credits for SSDI.

I was denied ssdi. I have a

I was denied ssdi. I have a rare bone issue that requires surgery and I can’t find anyone to do it right no but still searching. I cannot carry my 2 toddler children walk, stand, sit or sleep without pain I cannot clean etc and don’t drive in case of severe paint while driving might be dangerous. They told me medical evidence shows I have physical impairment in which I cannot lift carry etc. they said I DO have good enough strength to walk, sit, or, and move about to compete less strenuous activity. I don’t understand how this is determined. I know I cannot do these things I can’t even keep up on my house sweep mop laundry etc without paint I the point I sit and cry. I don’t understand, and what do I do now?

Hi Whitney,

Hi Whitney,

I am sorry to hear that. Unfortunately a majority of people are denied on their initial application. There are a couple of things that I would suggest, speak with an attorney. Their experience would be key. You should also make sure that you are working with a doctor during this time as they can help evaluate your condition with a residual functional capacity form.

If you are not working with an attorney and would like one, please fill out our form here:

I filled application for ssi

I filled application for ssi ssdi they keep telling me dates for my decision then they tell me waiting for one more medical records why can't they tell me am I approved for one or the other

Hi There

Hi There

It may be that they still don't have enough information to make a decision. If they are waiting for more medical records, then they likely are still evaluating your eligibility. If you are able to submit your medical records, or follow up with your attorney/advocate (if you're working with one) to make sure they have submitted them, it can help speed up the decision.

I have end stage renal

I have end stage renal failure. I was receiving SSI benefits, then I recently received a letter saying my SSI benefits are denied and would resort to zero dollars. The letter said they figured in my social security benefits and the support my mother gives me and I make too much money. But the only income I have is what SSI has given me. Help!

Hi Olivia,

Hi Olivia,

You should be able to appeal their decision. The letter should state how to do so. Make sure you have all documents to support your current financial state.

Hi Stephen,

Hi Stephen,

We are not affiliated with the SSA, so that is not something we would know! You can check your MySSA account for updates on your claim!
