You don't say where you found this record, but a common way to find this information is via Ancestry's database U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007.
Ancestry's About the Database information, which can be found below the search box on the main page to search the database, contains information about what can be found in the records and includes this passage:
The most common types of claims noted include: Original SSN (when the
original application was submitted to obtain a SSN), Life Claim (when
a claim was made for disability or retirement benefits), Death Claim
(when a claim was made by a surviving family member for death or
survivor benefits), and Duplicate SSN (usually used when an
application was made to replace a SS card, it may also indicate a
change in SSN or that more than one SSN was assigned).
We can reach the About the Database information quickly by clicking the Learn More link underneath the Source Information on an entry's Record Page.
The problem is that Ancestry doesn't always explain what type of claim the entries are. How can we find out more?
Ancestry tells us:
Original data: Social Security Applications and Claims, 1936-2007.
But what information is that exactly?
The data is drawn from the Social Security Administrations computerized index of applications and claims files. Some of these files are also available to the public via the US National Archives (NARA) Access to Archival Databases (AAD). These records are part of NARA's Record Group (RG) 47. On the main page under "What's New", NARA describes their database as follows:
Numerical Identification Files (NUMIDENT)
This series contains data from the Social Security Administration's Numerical Identification Files (NUMIDENT). The Claim
Files contain information extracted from Social Security life or death
claims for 25 million deceased individuals. The records include
information such as name, social security number, birth date, and
birth place. This is in addition to the nearly 50 million NUMIDENT
death records and 72 million NUMIDENT application (SS-5) records
already on AAD.
The search page has a global search box, and a Series Description which includes a list of files contained in the database, and Scope and Content information. This is more tech-oriented than Ancestry's About the Database, but NARA also has a FAQ describing the records which you can download. The FAQ and the Scope and Content materials explain the restrictions of the database and how the information was modified from the SSA's NUMIDENT database to create NARA's public-use version.
According to the FAQ "The NUMIDENT records contain three types of entries in NUMIDENT: death, application (SS-5), and claim records." If you search here, unlike on Ancestry, you can see what type of claim was made. I searched using the SSN and got this result from the File Unit Claim Files, 1936 - 2007 (Last Names R through T).
Here you can see that the claim is a Life Claim. The claim date may refer to William Stahnke's Social Security retirement payments or to a disability claim. A next step might be to research historical newspapers to see if you can find an article about his employment or retirement using the claim date as a starting place for your search.
