Many veterans who receive VA benefits also file for Social Security disability benefits. A disabled veteran is elegible for benefits under both programs.
The SSA must expedite the disability claim of a veteran injured on active duty after October 1, 2001.
The SSA must consider your VA rating decision and the evidence used to make that decision. See Social Security Ruling 06-03p.
VA medical providers are required to honor requests by veterans for assistance in completing Social Security forms regarding their current health conditions and functional impairment. See VHA directive 2008-071.
Many of my clients are veterans. If you are unable to work due to physical or mental impairments and you have been denied Social Security disability, please contact Gordon Gates.
