A misdemeanor stays on your record forever. All an expungement does is allow you to state "no" when asked if you have been convicted of a crime on most civilian applications. But the record remains a part of the system maintained by the Department of Justice.

You don't apply for social security with the U.S. District Court. You apply with the Social Security Administration.
