Getting the Status of your Disability Hearing Request

Regardless of the level of your disability claim with Social Security, you really should always be aware of its current status. Typically, this does not involve much effort on a claimant's part and checking your disability status may not ever be necessary. However, if long periods go by without you hearing any word at all regarding your claim, you should probably do a status check.

It's even more important to check when you have an upcoming hearing

Disability applicants should periodically check the status of their claim even while waiting for a disability hearing. Social Security notifies all disability claimants of their impending hearing via the postal service and there is always a chance your notice could get lost in the mail. This is why it is very important for you to check the status of your disability hearing request.

If you have a representative, you may not have to worry so much about receiving your notification because your disability representative or disability lawyer will receive copies of all your Social Security correspondence. That said, you may simply want to know what is happening with your request. You may even want to request an expedited hearing based on dire need.

You can get a status on your disability hearing request by contacting the local Social Security office, or the hearing office itself. If you have an attorney or a Social Security representative, they can, and should, call and check the status for you.
