Receiving VA and SSD Benefits in Reno
What are Wounded Warrior Social Security Disability Claims?
More than 9 million veterans receive benefits and more than 40% of beneficiaries
from Social Security Disability are veterans or members of a veteran's
family, according to the Social Security Administration. As a disabled
veteran, you may be entitled to benefits through the Social Security Administration.
As of now, Disability Action Advocates does not handle VA claims, but our
team can help you file for SSD if your claim is pending, or if you are
currently receiving VA disability benefits.
If you are a veteran of the United States military and are entitled to
disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), you
can also get Social Security Disability (SSD) coverage. At Disability
Action Advocates, we encourage you to
contact us today to find out what options you have available if you are included
in this category. Our firm has
20 years of experience and we know how to get results! In addition, we work on a
contingency fee basis.
Understanding SSD Benefits for Veterans
As you pursue VA and SSD benefits, you should understand the differences
between each program. One important factor to keep in mind is that
if you get VA benefits, you can also file for SSD benefits. You will, however, need to apply for each claim separately.
Social Security Administration does not have a gradient scale of impairment, which is unlike VA disability
benefits. SSA grants either no coverage or full coverage, depending on
the circumstances. To receive SSD benefits, you will need to prove that
your disability caused impending death or an inability to work for a year.
You will likely be denied if an alternative form of employment can be
found for you.
What can I expect to receive as a veteran?
If you are a veteran seeking benefits from the Wounded Warriors program,
the SSA will work with the VA to give you expedited service. The only
requirement is that your disability occurred during your time in active
military service, but it does not have to have occurred during combat.
