Disability benefits for wounded warriors

Veterans returning home after war

Benefits for military veterans could be received under the SSI or SSDI programs provided they are proved disabled under the Blue Book guidelines. However, benefits received through social security are different than the benefits receivable from the Department of Veteran Affairs.  

If a member of the military or a war veteran received an injury, illness or wound leading to disability under federal guidelines for disability, while on duty on or after October 1, 2001, they will be eligible to claim for social security disability regardless of when or where the disability occurred.

To qualify under social security you need to be able to prove that you didn’t engage in any substantial activity gains through work whether mental or physical to acquire income. If you are receiving treatment in a military medical facility or are receiving payment for your medical treatment under military facilities, it does not affect your social security application.  

You do however need to prove that your disability caused you impairment long enough to last more than the specific time frame of 12 months set by the SSA or could result in death if you go to work.  

You may apply for the social security while you are still in military status but not on duty, hospitalized or discharged, are in rehabilitation program or are undergoing physical or psychological therapy.

You can apply online or contact our social security disability attorneys at your nearest office of Disability Advocates Group Law Firm (DAG).
