Expedited Social Security Benefits for Military

Benefits available through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and require a separate application. Now, there is good news regarding the processing of disability claims from Social Security for those who have served. The expedited processing of military and Veteran disability claims is available to military service members who became disabled while on active military service on or after the first of October, 2001. It does not matter where the disability occurred. Moreover, through both SSA and Veterans Affairs, there are multiple types of benefits available. Some benefits are not reliant upon your income level, but rather are based on your military service, and the type of disability.
