Hi Connie,

Hi Connie,

You have to meet both medical and technical qualifications for disability benefits. It sounds like they have determined a decision on whether or not you medically qualify and are still reviewing your claim to see if you meet the other qualifications.

Hi Crystal,

Hi Crystal,

There are a couple of parts to a disability application. The medical part and the technical part. It seems like they have completed the medical part and are now working on the technical part.

Hi Connie,

Hi Connie,

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!

What does it mean when my disability application says: “We are processing the medical portion of your application. If more information is needed, we will contact you directly?”

Hi Karla,

Hi Karla,

This means that they are reviewing your case. There are two sets of criteria that you have to meet. The medical side and the technical side. They are still reviewing to make sure that you qualify medically.

It says my claim is processing does that mean I'm Approved for Disability benefits?? I need a straight answer, is that a good sign?

Hi Paddy,

Hi Paddy,

It means they are still working on reviewing your claim and have not made a decision yet. Once they do, you'll receive a letter in the mail explaining if you were approved or denied and why. Best of luck!

Hi Keisha,

They may still need more information to make a decision on your claim, which is why they are requesting you go in again.

A medical decision has been made and we are working to process your benefit application. A Social Security Representative may contact you directly if we need any additional documents or information. If a medical decision has been made why are they still reviewing it ?

Hi Athena,

Hi Athena,

There are two parts to qualifying. The medical and the technical qualifications that look at your work history. If the medical decision has been made, It is likely that they are just reviewing the technical part.

Hi Branden,

Hi Branden,

To qualify for disability benefits, there is some specific criteria that you have to meet on top of the medical. They will be taking a look at the applicants work history to see if they have received enough credits to qualify. To qualify for SSDI you have to "pay into" the system via income taxes. You can earn up to four credits a year and the amount you need to qualify is based on your age.

Hi Laura,

Hi Laura,

Sometimes the SSA will make a decision without you even having to see one of their doctors. I would continue to follow up and promptly send any information they ask for to try to speed up the process. Best of luck!

Hi,

Hi,
I received a letter from ALJ stating fully favorable for ssdi. Still waiting on decision for ssi. But when I go online it states that my case was sent to the appeals council for review. How much longer til I start getting payments and my backpay?

Hi Kristi,

Hi Kristi,

Generally it takes 1-2 months before you begin receiving payments. Back pay typically takes longer than that. If you worked with an attorney, you can contact them because they will receive their payments first and then you will receive yours shortly after.

Hi,

There are a few steps to the disability benefits process. You have to be able to qualify both medically and technically. It seems like the application is still being looked at.

I did a phone application on

I did a phone application on March 4, 2020 and on the SSA website it says that the disability determination center is currently processing my application but with the covid 19 happening no progress has been made and I haven't received any paperwork from my local social security office since then what do I do to find out if I was approved or not do I call the determination center or the social security office or do I keep waiting?

Hi Ashley,

Hi Ashley,

It can take some time for the SSA to determine if you are eligible for benefits. You can check you MySSA account for updates, call, or check in with your lawyer (if you worked with one). Best of luck!
