How Veterans Apply For SSDI?

Veterans will receive a faster decisions on their

Social Security disability claim, which will save time and money in the long run. Social Security and Attorneys requesting medical records from the VA can take months to obtain and this partnership allows Social Security and VA to share health information electronically in minutes.

Social Security also offers other programs to expedite veteran’s claims for disability who have become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, and for Veterans who have received a 100% impairment rating from the VA.
