  1. Yes I am just checking up on my SSI CASE. I have being waiting not for 60 days for my case and nothing yet. I have being off work now for 21/2 months and I have no income coming in at this moment,and my Bills and Rent are way behind right now! I will be getting ready to be put out after while, and no place else to go. It was told to me , that it would only take 90 days for this to go threw.

  2. According to the Social Security Administration Website; 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.
    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
    We made a final decision on your application more than four months ago.
    If anything prevents you from checking your application status online, call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

  3. Ya. It takes much longer than 90 days. You will probably have to go on government assistance until your SSI comes available.
