Can I tell if my social security disability claim was approved or denied? 7 Answers as of January 10, 2013

I appealed my social security disability denial in September 2012. When I called to check the status of my claim in December 2012, I was told that I would receive a payment or a notice by January 16, 2013. Does this sound like an approval or a denial of my case?

I would wait for the notice. It will either be notification of approval or a denial of the claim.

It sounds like it can go either way. After January 16th, I would call the worker at the Disability Determination Bureau handling your claim. Good luck.

RE: When I called to check the status of my claim in December. It sounds like they have not yet made a decision. RE: I was told that I would receive a payment or a notice by January 16, 2013.It is not yet Jan 16. You should keep waiting, likely for about 2 weeks thereafter. If the decision is unfavorable, I suggest you get an attorney that handles SS cases. I do not.

    There is no way to tell, it seems you will get more information on the 16th...it could go either way. It sounds like this was your first appeal...most people don't get approved until their hearing after their 2nd appeal.
