Approved for Medical now waiting to see if I qualify for medical

Online it states I'm approved for social security disability. I received a letter stating I was approved for the medical but they have not decided whether I qualify under the non medical rules.
Online it shows I have 2 claims. One for SSDI and one for SSI (Disability). I did not apply for SSI disability but this is what it says under that link:

A Decision Has Been Made On Your Benefit Application

Your claim for Disability benefits has been approved. A detailed notice has been sent to you with your benefit information. For more information, please use the Benefit Verification Letter to check your benefit details.

If you disagree with the decision, you may request an appeal within 60 days of the date on the "Notice of Decision" you receive. A written request of appeal is required. You may use Form SSA-561 (Request for Reconsideration) to submit your request to your local Social Security office.
What does this mean and now that the medical has been approved how long will it take for the non medical. I can view my work history so I know I have enough work history. Thank you in advance

Hi there,

Hi there,
It means that you meet the medical qualifications, which is one half of the requirements to qualify for benefits. The SSA must determine if you meet the technical requirements, which in the case of SSI means determining if your income and financial resources are under the SSI maximum for both.

My SSI was denied, but my ssd

My SSI was denied, but my ssd under review a medical decision has been made and we are processing your benefits application. Social security will contact you directly if they need any information. I called the ssa office and the rep told me I have to wait. Pls someone can give me an understanding of what this mean

Hi Kim,

Hi Kim,

You were denied SSI, most likely because of the strict financial requirements that are needed to get approved. You can appeal that decision though.

Your SSDI application is still being reviewed. They haven't come to a decision regarding that. You will have to wait until they fully review it and make a decision before you hear back from them regarding that.

Alexis
Hello I receive a letter from

Hello I receive a letter from social security my daughter medically approved for ssi benfit and I have appointed for financial documents rent income asset to see if my daughter qualified for ssi benfit what do this mean my daughter or not

Hi Alexis,

Hi Alexis,

That's a great question. Your daughter was approved medically, meaning the SSA consider her disability to be severe enough to warrant SSI benefits.

The SSA will need your financial records/documents because SSI is a needs based program and it is only for people who are very financially needy.

It's still pending but if you meet the financial requirements, your daughter will be approved for SSI.

How long between medical and non-medical decisions? I got a notice saying I have met the medical requirements so...how much longer before I know if I am approved?

Hi There,

Hi There,

Unfortunately the time it takes to hear an answer from the SSA varies on a case to case basis.

How do I find my status on the appilication i filled out???

Hi There,

Hi There,

You can track your progress on your MySSA account. You can also ask your disability attorney (if you have one), since they are the first to hear to whether your case was approved or denied.

Roz
They denied my SSI,but

They denied my SSI,but waiting for info on my SSDI,did they denied my SIS because I get child support?

Hi Roz,

Hi Roz,

I'm sorry to hear that. They probably denied your SSI because of your income. SSI is a needs based program. It's still possible you could qualify for SSDI benefits.

I started my application

I started my application process on 8/18 it's now 1/19 and I'm still stuck at step 2 out of 3. Does longer wait times usually have better results? What could the hold up be?

Hi Tiffany,

Hi Tiffany,

That does seem long. But it generally takes around 3-5 months to hear back from the SSA. If you don't hear anything back by the end of the month I would check in with them.

My daughter claim is at the DDS stage and it's almost 90 days and no decision made yet but I received something from SSAsaying they will deal directly with my appointed lawyer what does this mean ?

Hi Kiki,

Disability lawyers are always notified first before the claimant, since they will receiving fees from the SSA if you win the case.

I've been through the whole process and denied three times. This is my fourth try.im waiting on a decision. Is their any way to check the status of my claim?

Hi Stephen,

Hi Stephen,

There are a couple ways you can. You can call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213, check your MySSA account (you may have to create one first if you have not) or call your lawyer or advocate if you worked with one.

I am legally blind and have a

I am legally blind and have a serious degenerative disc disorder of the spine . I applied for SSDI Dec 7th,2018 and thought I've been patient and know its a long process , it has surpassed 6 months and I have no benefits to see a dr. .The medical portion of my claim has been approved and it has been forwarded for final review ,based on information I was given over the phone by the assigned Disability Determination Agent . But, the status online still shows "The Medical Portion of your claim is in review"//Why is that, and why does it take so long to update

Hi There,

Hi There,

I am sorry to hear that. Every office is different, some process claims faster than others, some slower than others. If you have a lawyer, I would recommend asking he or she to see if they could shed some light on your situation. Best of luck.

Stopped working May 2016

Stopped working May 2016 after 26 yrs in Law Enforcement due to but not limited to (2) back surgeries, diabetes, gastroparesis, and end renal disease . Applied for SSDI July 2016 and was denied SSI right away and eventually denied SSDI. Went through the whole appeal process and October 2018 was awarded 16 months back pay by the ALJ (still not received). In the wait of the appeal court day appearance, I returned back to work in November 2017 but had already began PD at home August 2017. Developed a hernia in November 2018 which prohibited me from working b/c of the pain, surgery to repair was December 2018. Did not return to work thereafter. Not until several visits to the local SSA office was I told that I would have to do a new application for being on Dialysis. Application completed March 2019. As of June 6th to today, I've received an State started processing the medical portion of your benefit application to receiving a phone call stating I will receive a packet to complete and return, then receiving another phone call the next day saying that a medical decision had been made and I'll be receiving a letter in two weeks, to receiving a SSI check and the last claim status posted June 10th that a medical decision has been made and they are working to process my benefit application. What this looks like and what's holding up my back pay?

Hi There,

Hi There,

It sounds like they have still been working on your claim. The letter you are getting in the mail may be the letter with the decision on your case. As for back pay, that typically does not come until around 4 months after you being receiving benefits.

Dds examiner has made her decision and now my case is under doctor’s review. What does this mean?

Hi Francis,

Hi Francis,

This means your case is still going through the different stages of the review process. Once a decision has been made, you'll receive a letter in the mail. Best of luck!
