Social Security has recently announced a new program to help disabled Veterans get quicker decisions on their disability applications. This program will help speed up the process for those Veterans with a 100% permanent total disability rating from the VA. Social Security has been quick to say that this will not guarantee a favorable decision on your disability case. But it will help speed up the process. You can still have an attorney assist you with filing the initial application for benefits on your disability claim.
While this is a new program, set to start in mid-March, Social Security has been providing help to our nation’s Veterans for many years through other programs, such as the Wounded Warrior Project. If you are a Veteran who is no longer able to work, please contact us to discuss your rights under Social Security. In addition to helping you with your disability claim, if your conditions are service connected, we may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve through the Veteran’s Administration.
