Disabled Veteran SSD Claim Attorneys
Disabled veterans face many challenges, among them attempting to navigate the processes surrounding the wide array of benefits that may be available to them. Disabled veterans benefits are not offset due to receipt of Social Security Disability benefits. However, it is very important to work with a knowledgeable benefits lawyer who can assist you with the distinct applications involved in seeking all of the benefits, including disabled veterans and SSD benefits, to which you may be entitled.
Qualifying for SSD
To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must have paid Social Security taxes for more than a specified amount of time. Doing so insures you against the possibility of being unable to perform substantial work due to a physical or mental impairment that lasts longer than a year, or is terminal. Documentation must be submitted to prove that you have a qualifying medical impairment.
Important SSD Considerations for Disabled Veterans
Your ability to perform substantial work activity is the determining factor in whether you receive SSD benefits. Your eligibility for these benefits is usually not affected by being on active duty status or receiving military pay or disabled veteran benefits.
As a service member, you may be able to take advantage of expedited processing of SSD benefit claims, side-stepping the significant period of time that it usually takes to begin receiving benefits.
