Veteran’s Rules Picked up by the SSA Hearing Office

July 30, 2014

Information from the hearing office suggests that the hearing office will begin to implement the new rules.  Information from SSA has been disseminated that states:

· A new policy to expedite disability claims where the Veteran has been rated 100% disabled by the VA is now implemented.

· To receive expedited processing, these Veterans will have self-identified and provided verification of their VA rating of 100% to the field office. These cases should be identified and flagged upon receipt into ODAR.

· ODAR offices should follow the critical case procedures in HALLEX Manual I-2-1-40 and I-3-1-51.

This is great news.
