Some Veterans Now Eligible for Expedited Processing of their Social Security Disability Claim

It is now going to be easier for veterans to apply and receive Social Security Disability benefits.  The Social Security Administration just announced that veterans with a disability compensation rating of 100 percent Permanent and Total will soon have their applications for Social Security disability benefits processed faster.

This expedited process is expected to begin in March 2014. 

 “Our veterans have sacrificed so much for our country and it is only right that we ensure they have timely access to the disability benefits they may be eligible for and deserve,” Acting Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn Colvin said in the news release.

In order to receive expedited service, veterans must inform the Social Security Administration that they have a 100 percent Permanent and Total disability compensation rating and show proof of this disability rating with their VA notification letter. 

This rating, however, is not a guarantee that the application for Social Security Disability benefits will be approved.  It only allows the veteran to have his/her claim processed in an expedited manner.
