You’re dealing here with the government. They’re going to let you know when they feel like letting you know. I can tell you that the average time would be three to six months. We’ve seen cases where six months come and go and there’s been no response and the way to deal with that, the best way to deal with it, is to call them. Unfortunately, if you call them you’re going to be holding onto the phone for God knows for how long. You may become disabled because of the callus in your ear, or you can go down to the social security office and try to get a living individual to respond to you because they should be able to give you a status. You may be able to get a status online as well by going to the SSA.gov site. They can probably tell you online where your claim is and what’s holding it up.
