Disabled Veterans and Social Security

August 28, 2013

Unfortunately, U.S. government agencies responsible for determining eligibility for benefits for active and retired service members have a (well deserved) reputation for slow processing of applications. However, for those military members who are disabled, the Social Security Administration, also called SSA, provides an expedited application process for Social Security Disability Benefits or SSDI.

Even if military benefits are not yet worked out, it may be worthwhile to pursue an SSDI claim simultaneously because of the heightened service available to service members who became disabled while on active duty on or after October 1, 2001.

It is worth noting that disabled vets can be eligible for both military benefits and Social Security benefits.
