Hi,
Finally saw something pop up on my my social security site, it states ;
A medical de ision has been made and we are working to process your benefit application. A SS representative may contact you directly if we need additional documents or information
Any thoughts?
Thanks

Hi,

My best guess is that you've filed for disability benefits and have been found to meet the medical requirements to qualify. Assuming that's the case, the next step is for Social Security to determine whether or not you meet the non-medical requirements for benefits, after which they will approve or disapprove your claim and send you the appropriate notification. Social Security generally doesn't go to the trouble of making a medical determination without first verifying that you meet the basic non-medical requirements, though, so I would guess that you have a good chance of final approval.

Best, Jerry
