Can I Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits if I Get Veterans Benefits?

Social Security Disability (SSDI) Benefits are meant to help disabled workers meet their needs after becoming unable to work. Some people may be afraid to file for SSDI because they already receive another form of disability benefits, and they do not wish to jeopardize this support. Many veterans may worry about losing their benefits if they file for SSDI. Georgia Disability Attorney Samuel E. Earley can offer sound guidance about receiving SSDI and veterans disability benefits.

SSDI and Public Disability Benefits

Public disability benefits may be paid to certain recipients through federal, state or local government organizations if they have disabling medical conditions that are not job-related. These are separate from Social Security Disability benefits and can include retirement benefits and civil service disability benefits. These additional disability benefits can cause your SSDI benefit amount to be reduced.

SSDI and public disability benefits is an extremely complicated issue, as there are many variables and circumstances that impact every situation. Disability Attorney Sam Earley can explain the differences, as well as help you choose the best option for disability benefits that meets your needs.

Veterans Disability Benefits

Although they are considered to be a type of public disability benefits, VA disability benefits do not count against your SSDI benefit calculations. If you qualify for both programs, you will receive the full benefits of each to which you are entitled.

Veterans Can Be Fast-Tracked

Moreover, if you already receive veteran’s disability benefits with a 100% P&T rating, the Social Security Administration will expedite your application for SSDI benefits.

Plus, other disabled veterans may qualify for expedited SSDI application processing through the SSA’s Wounded Warrior Program, regardless of your P&T rating. This program prioritizes claims for veterans who became disabled on active duty on or after October 1, 2001.
