I have questions about the data on the social security applications and claims forms. Where can I post my questions? Is there a group that is knowledgeable about this information?
Hi @annettegathright1, I noticed your post is about the Social Security Applications and Claims Forms, and FamilySearch does not work with a collection that contains this information. You did not state whether you are trying to access a previous application or if you are trying to find and use this Social Security form.
If you are interested in accessing a collection titled Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 you will need to contact Ancestry.com since that is a collections that is available at their site but is not available at FamilySearch.
If you wish to actually get the forms related to Social Security benefits within the United States, please do a Google search, or go to the online government site: https://www.ssa.gov
I hope this additional information is helpful. It does appear that you are looking for information that might be in the Index mentioned above, but keep in mind that Social Security information can also be accessed through the government site we have mentioned.

I do not know if any information in these articles will help; but, here are some "Knowledge Articles" in 'FamilySearch':
I hope, that something amongst all that, may help, somewhat.
I will hope someone else will also respond. I will post my detailed question at some of those sites. Question is not of an SSDI relalation, but based on the SS submssion and claims data. Thank you for your response.
Have you tried the National Archives (aka NARA)? They have a series of files containing Social Security Applications, Claims and Deaths - records are from 1936-2007. Be aware the records are not 100% complete.
Numerical Identification Files (NUMIDENT)
This series contains records for every social security number (SSN) assigned to individuals with a verified death or who would have been over 110 years old by December 31, 2007. There are three type of entries in NUMIDENT: application (SS-5), claim, and death records. A NUMIDENT record may contain more than one entry. Information contained in NUMIDENT records includes: each applicant's full name, SSN, date of birth, place of birth, citizenship, sex, father's name, mother's maiden name, and race/ethnic description (optional). NUMIDENT includes information regarding any subsequent changes made to the applicant's record, including name changes and life or death claims. The death records in NUMIDENT do not include any State reported deaths in accordance with the Social Security Act section 205(r). There are 72,182,729 SS-5 records entries; 25,230,486 claim record entries; and 49,459,293 death record entries.
