Status updates can help to avoid problems

There is no “correct” time to check the status of a disability claim, so you can get the status of your disability claim any time you wish to do so. There are times, though, when disability decision letters and hearing notification letters are lost in the mail. For this reason, it is not a bad idea to sporadically check the status of your disability claim. You may even find that there has been a decision made or a hearing has been scheduled.
