Q:

Where can I find out if my disability claim has been approved?

Quick Answer

According to the Social Security Disability and SSI Resource Center, verification of an approved disability claim arrives by mail. Social Security sends a notice of the decision. If it has been denied, the state disability agency sends a denial letter.

Full Answer

Social Security sends written notice of the decision within 90 days; if the approval or denial does not arrive in that time, the local Social Security office can provide information on the status of the claim. It is also possible to call the SSA for a toll-free automated system that reveals the status of the claim.

It is important to check on the status of a disability claim periodically to see whether a decision has been made. If it has been denied and it has not yet arrived in the mail, it is possible that the 60-day window for appealing the rejection may lapse.

    How do you apply for low-income housing?

    A:

    To apply for low-income housing, submit a written application that contains information like the applicant's personal information, family characteristics or circumstance, anticipated household income for the next 12 months, along with the source of the income and banking information for verification, to a local housing agency, or HA, or to a local United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, field office. Eligibility for low-income housing is dependent on whether the applicant's household income falls below the income limit set for the state that he or she resides in. The HUD considers an applicant to fall into the category of having a lower income if the household income is 80 percent of the median income, and into the category of very low income if the household income is only 50 percent of the median income.
