The linkage between being a veteran or member of the military and knowing you can also be eligible for Social Security benefits are often overlooked or nonexistent.
Many struggle with homelessness and income stability, yet the SSA provides expedited claims processing for those with 100% P&T in the Wounded Warriors program. We here at Disability Experts of Florida want you to be informed about what veterans are able to receive under Social Security.
We have a new guide entitled “Does Getting Veterans’ Disability Guarantee Social Security Disability?” This can be a difficult subject to tackle, but we go over some of the following:
- If you can get both VA compensation and SS disability at the same time
- What your family is eligible for in terms of SS benefits
- When you can get Medicare once you are an SS beneficiary
- The types of SS and how it can be combined with VA compensation or pension
If you or someone you know has been struggling, make sure you download our free guide to see how this may help them pay their bills and provide for their family. While we aren’t qualified to handle your case with the VA, we are happy to review your Social Security application and verify all of the necessary components are there before sending it to the SSA.
