The Importance of Checking the Status of Your Claim
The SSA handles hundreds of thousands of disability claims per year, and it’s not uncommon for applications to get lost. With so many applicants in the system, mistakes happen, and paperwork such as supporting medical evidence and appeals go missing all the time at any point in the process.
It is important to check your claim status at each stage of the application or appeal process because you diminish any uncertainties on your part. You can also ensure that you have full control of your case.
As staggering as it sounds, in some cases, claims have been fully processed, but the administrator failed to notify applicants that they had been denied (or approved). You don’t want to be stuck in this situation, and you definitely want to be in a position to respond to a technical denial from the SSA.

Advantages Of Having A Disability Representative
Handling your claim on your own can be stressful if you are also caring for your family, or if your medical condition requires a significant amount of attention. But, checking your disability claim status is simple if you hire Crest SSD.
A Crest SSD representative will stay in touch with you regularly and give you updates on your case. We will keep you up to date on your case’s status through email, text message, or phone call — whichever form you prefer. And, when you have any questions, experience a change in your medical condition, or want to know an update on your status, you can always reach out to us.
When working with a disability representative from Crest SSD, you avoid the trouble of creating an account and navigating through the complex SSA website. You avoid wasting time waiting to get a hold of someone from the SSA over the phone. You also avoid going to the hectic Social Security office and having to wait a significant period of time before talking to someone.
In addition, a Crest SSD representative can explain why your claim is currently in a particular status and what it means. For example, the SSA may request a Consultative Exam (CE) to determine the validity or severity of your condition. You will want to know what this means, how to prepare, and what to expect from a CE exam.
You don’t have to try to find answers on your own or try to navigate the SSA disability system. Additionally, you will save lots of time and effort working with Crest SSD rather than trying to get answers from an SSA employee or disability examiner from the Disability Determination Services (DDS).

The Benefits of Crest SSD Checking Your Claim Status
We understand that being informed of the status of your claim is important to you as you anxiously wait for a response. It can take several months for your disability claim to be decided, but if you are unaware that your claim is missing paperwork or medical evidence, a decision can take longer. Or, even worse, your claim could be denied.
We keep track of your claim’s progress to make sure you don’t miss any important updates or requests from the SSA. We will check in with the appropriate facility depending on the stage of your claim, allowing us to intervene on-time and help you meet deadlines.
A Crest SSD representative will provide you with general updates about where your claim is in the process and give you as much detail as possible. We regularly check with the SSA or DDS on your behalf and investigate whether there are any hold-ups to avoid delays. Our team keeps you well-informed of all developments, and we are always prepared to take action if any issues come up.
For example, if your application is in the initial application phase and on hold because of missing medical records from a particular clinic or doctor, not only do we inform you of the situation, but we also immediately work on contacting the clinic or doctor to obtain the records. Ultimately this could speed up the process and could prevent your claim from being denied.
In addition, we check your claim’s progress to avoid missing deadlines, like attending a consultative exam or submitting an appeal.
