What if I donít get a decision on my SSI claim by the 90 day period?




 
Social Security has no set limits in the time it takes to make a SSI or SSDI disability determination. That being said, they set timely processing goals each year and try to meet those goals.

Processing time is dependent upon the unique facts of each disability case. For instance, if your SSI disability claim required that you attend a consultative examination to get necessary medical information, or an important medical source you provided takes a longer time to get their medical information to the disability examiner, it can take longer to get a decision.

If you do not get a decision within 90 days, it would not be a bad idea to check the status of your SSI disability claim. Sometimes, there has been a decision made but for some reason you did not receive your decision notice. For this reason alone, it might be advisable to check once a month.

Social Security allows a 60 day appeal period for denials and if you do not receive your notice for some reason you may miss your appeal period. Call your local Social Security office to get a status on your disability claim periodically. If you move, make sure to report your new address to Social Security so that they can contact the disability agency to make sure you can be reached.
