The period from when you submit your application to when you learn if you’re approved or denied varies. It can take the SSA about six weeks to process your application and start your benefits. It might take longer if you supply incorrect information or the SSA needs more information. The number of applications sent to the SSA for retirement benefits could also contribute to a longer processing time.

Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied.
