Priority to Disabled Vets

March 19, 2014

Social Security has instructions give priority in processing to the disability claims of veterans who have been awarded 100% permanent and total compensation by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This appears to to refer only to “compensation” and does not seem to apply to veterans receiving the non-service connected pension from the VA. Interestingly those vets have also been found totally and permanently disabled by VA yet I think they are excluded under these instructions.
