My office is dedicated to ensuring those who are eligible for Social Security benefits can receive them. Nevadans who are experiencing challenges with the Social Security Administration are welcome to contact my office for assistance. My team will do our best to help you resolve a problem or get the information you need when it comes to inquiring on the status of your Social Security benefits, survivor benefits (spouses and children), Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), retirement benefits, and Medicare coverage and contributions if they are outside of the normal processing times set by the Social Security Administration. If it has been under 24 months since you have applied for SSI or SSDI, we encourage you to first reach out to your local SSA field office, or call the national line 1-800-772-1213 to see if they can address your concerns directly.
Both SSI and SSDI claims can take up to two years to be processed. Please see the criteria for critical/dire need cases here. If you fall into one of the approved categories, we may be able to get your claim expedited. You can check the status of your application online using your personal Social Security account, or call 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday — Friday.

The Social Security Administration has the sole authority to make decisions regarding their programs. My office is unable to assist once a claim enters the appeals stage as it is now considered a legal issue. If you need legal assistance or representation, please visit my legal resources page.
My office does not use constituent casework to intervene on the behalf of a fee-for-service agent, including but not limited to attorneys. Nor do we correspond with fee-for-service agents for a constituent’s case. We encourage you to work directly with your representative and SSA before contacting our office.
*Please note: only one congressional office may submit an inquiry on behalf of a constituent. If you are currently working with another congressional office, you should continue working directly with that office.
