Payment Status Codes for SSI

The social security payment status after you have been approved for benefits is used in the state data exchange system.

When you call to check your social security disability application payment status, the answers from calling the SSA are not always helpful.  Sometimes it can feel like you are still trying to decode the entire process just to gain some sanity while you wait for payment after the decision has been made and you have been approved for disability.  The SDX record status might be a clue. It is an internal status code for the state data exchange system, but it might be helpful to ask the person you speak with if there is SDX status code because there are so many stages when your application and payment is processed through the system.  The front line staff answering the phones might not necessarily have detailed information about status codes and this is a list that might help you decode the mystery of why your application or backpay payment could be in limbo if you happen to find out a code on your file.  If you have a NONPAY status, this chart should be especially useful to get more information.

Let us know what the status codes mean if you have been given them during your hunt for social security disability payments if they are different than what we have listed. You can discuss your payment status updates and SSD facts with other people live on our main social security forum page here.  You can comment and keep your information private by posting anonymously or you can create an account to stay in contact with other people and share your profile to compare your situation.  To share the facts about socials security payment status while you wait during the long time it can take, can be a relief.  Register here to create a profile and search profiles to find people who have the same problem as you.

SDX Payment Status Codes

Here is how the SDX Payment Status Codes positions are used:  they are three positions.  The first position reflects the status of SSI/State Supplement payments, the second position and third positions give reasons for the status.  This information is exchanged between state disability systems and the social security system.
