Social Security Disability and Veterans Disability

Social Security Disability and Veterans Disability

Disabled veterans who have a service-connected disability are able to collect both Social Security disability and veterans disability benefits from the U.S. government. Many disabled veterans who are totally disabled can collect both, with many getting veterans disability first and then later applying for Social Security disability benefits. In many situations, getting veterans disability benefits first can help when it comes to being approved for Social Security disability benefits. This is because the Social Security Administration is likely to give deference to the Veterans Affairs determination concerning a veteran’s disability status. 

Veterans Disability Benefits

Veterans disability benefits are paid to veterans who were injured or exposed to a disease during service that caused them to be disabled. The disability must be service-connected in order for the veteran to be eligible for veterans disability benefits. Veterans disability benefits are not based on income level. Rather, they are based on the veteran’s disability rating as determined by a VA doctor. Disability ratings are based on 10% intervals, and a veteran can have a disability rating of anywhere between 10% and 100%.

Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits

In order to be eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits, you must be considered disabled. This is in contrast to obtaining benefits under veterans disability where you can be partially disabled (e.g., 20% disabled) and still receive benefits. In order to collect both social security disability and veterans disability, the veteran must be totally or nearly totally disabled. Veterans who have a disability rating of 70% or more are likely going to qualify for Social Security disability benefits.

Fighting For The Disability Status You Need

When it comes to getting veterans disability and Social Security disability benefits, you may have to fight the respective agencies to prove your disability status. It is not uncommon for these agencies to require extensive proof that veterans qualify for disability status. You may have to rely on extensive medical evidence or expert testimony. An experienced veterans disability lawyer can help you fight to get the benefits you need.

When Veterans Are Not Eligible for Veterans Disability or SSDI Benefits

It is better for disabled veterans to obtain veterans disability and Social Security disability over veterans pension and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which are both available to disabled veterans who have very limited income. Social Security disability and veterans disability pay more in benefits. But if you are ineligible for either Social Security disability or veterans disability, the VA pension and/or SSI may be available to you. You should consult with an experienced disability lawyer about which disability benefit options are available to you.

    Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.

    Rei Dalio, the founder of the Bridgewater Joint Fund, known as the “father of the hedge fund,” said that capitalism is no longer applicable to most Americans. He said that the widening gap between the rich and the poor is creating a turbulent environment that has a disturbing resemblance to the economic and social unrest in the 1930s.
