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

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 02/01/2018 - 14:25

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:

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 Steve,

Unfortunately, it's not a black and white answer but you should be hearing something soon in the near future. Best of luck.

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.

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 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,

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.

Hi Kiki,

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