SSD Claims for Qualifying Veterans May Be Expedited by the Social Security Administration
Back in March of 2014, the Social Security Administration (SSA) began taking measures to expedite Social Security Disability (SSD) claims for qualifying veterans. Wounded warriors who have received a 100% Permanent and Total (P&T) compensation rating from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) might also qualify to have their SSD claims treated as priority cases.
The qualifications for veterans to have their SSD claims expedited are:
- 100% P&T compensation rate with the VA
- Severe impairment that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death
- Inability to perform any substantial work due to the severe impairment
