Many people only discuss the negative changes associated with the Social Security Administration but Carolyn Colvin the Acting Commissioner is attempting to make some changes that will benefit many.
A new initiative revealed is to expedite claims for Veterans who are receiving compensation rating of 100% permanent and total disability. This means individuals who meet these qualifications will be considered high priority, similar to the way the administration handles Wounded Warriors. Such individuals would have to provide proof of their disability rating with their VA Notification Letter.
Keep in mind; Social Security only agrees to expedite the claims process, as these Veterans will still be required to meet the eligibility requirements.
Additionally, the administration is also allowing the agency to process some SSI claims for individuals who are in a same-sex marriage.
