The time it takes to get a decision on your disability application can vary depending on:

  • The nature of your disability.
  • How quickly we can get your medical evidence from your doctor or other medical source.
  • Whether it is necessary to send you for a medical examination.
  • Whether we review your application for quality purposes.

Once you have submitted your application for disability benefits, it generally takes three to six months for an initial decision.

You can log in or create a personal my Social Security account to check the status of your pending application.
