Receiving VA & SSD Benefits

Counsel from our Reno Social Security Disability Attorney

According to the Social Security Administration, 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). 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 office has 20 years of experience and we know how to get results! In addition, we work on a contingency fee basis.

We're proud to assist our veterans as they strive to secure the benefits and care that they need. Call our Reno Social Security Disability lawyer and representatives at (888) 401-3920 today.

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.

The 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.
