How do I check the status of a pending application for benefits?
If you applied for benefits, you can check the Status of Your Application online.
Your application status shows:
- The date we received your application;
- Any requests for additional documents;
- The address of the office processing your application; and
- If a decision has been made.
You cannot check the status of an application for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits online.
