Check Application Status

You can check the status of your Social Security application online at this address :

https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6z/IAPS/applicationStatus

Please ensure your browser location shows 'ssa.gov' before entering information.

Your application status shows:

  • The date the SSA received your application;
  • Any requests for additional documents;
  • The address of the office processing your application; and
  • If a decision has been made.

If you receive an error, it may be because:

  • You entered an incorrect Social Security number or confirmation number;
  • You did not complete the application; or
  • The SSA made a final decision on your application more than four months ago.

If anything prevents you from checking your application status online, call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
