Question SSA Website

So I am wondering what I have to do to check my status online when I went on there to try to sign up for a temp password it would not let me, I called the 800 # they said I should of got something in the mail about it, but I never did. How does everyone check their status on there after a fully favorable decision?

The password is sent through the mail. Call the 1-800 number and tell them you need a temporary password. That is the only way to check your personal infomation online .

Wow! I never knew you could do that with SSA. I knew some law firms
set up their website so you could go in and check your case within their confines, but didn't realize SSA did that as well.

Well, now thats going to be my 1st plan of action Monday.. to get me set up for that.

Thanks for the info!

I just found out from SSA yesterday you will have to of gotten your award letter before you can sign up unless you filled out all your paperwork online. Also if you made it all the way to the ALJ hearing you cannot check status online still until you received your award letter hope this helps.

Yeah, that is correct. I did not know this either until Vann04 posted about it over a month ago. He has already been approved. This is the thing I love about Allsup before you are even approved. You can login to your account and see your entire SSDI timeline. They track every little detail. As soon as I get my approval letter from SSA, I intend to create an account at the SSA website.

Re: SSA Website

I am also going to request a copy of my medical file from SSA. The 1st one is free but they do charge you for subsequent requests. Since mine are mostly mental health records, I will have to get them (SSA) to release them (my medical records) to my mental health doc and then my mental health doc can give them to me. They will not give you mental health records directly. They send the records electronically (on a CD) so no paper clutter.

There is a very highly respected/prominent law firm here who does PSAs, and in a new one they have one of their litigators saying EVERYONE is entitled to and SHOULD have a copy of all their MEDICAL records. Mine aren't so scattered as they one were, once I started having everything sent to my main doc. Then I began going back to former doc's asking them to send my records to my current treating doc.

Once I get thru with all the SSDI stuff, I'll ask my doc for what he's has. I'll get the stuff my my atty, then I will get whatever SSA has. Then one day during a bad storm where there isn't anything else to do, sit down and compare everything.

Shouldn't that be interesting?

I agree Jacki.... just in case you ever need them again. Mine are not as scattered anymore either. I have seen ppl here need old medical records now but those records are no longer available for whatever reason. Usually when a doc stops practicing or dies, there is a protocol where every patient is contacted and given the option of forwarding these records to your new Physician. Sometimes, this does not happen and the records are eventually lost or get destroyed. I think it is a good idea to have them.
