VA Disability & Social Security Disability

VA Disability & Social Security Disability

If you are a disabled veteran, you may already know it is possible to qualify for bothveterans’ disability benefits andsocial security disability. The rules and qualifications for each program are unique. You might qualify for one program but not the other, or you may be able to receive payments from both programs concurrently. Disabled veterans are encouraged to apply forall disability programs for which they may qualify.

The Veterans Benefits Administration (VA) is usually the first stop for veterans in need of disability assistance. When you apply for veterans’ disability compensation for your service-connected disability, the VA will assign you a disability rating of 0-100%. Your VA compensation rating affects whether you are entitled to benefits and how much you will receive. When you apply for social security disability, the Social Security Administration will consider your VA compensation rating when making decisions on your application.

Veterans Disability Compensation Rating

Disability compensation is for veterans that incurred or aggravated an illness or injury while on active duty. This is known as a service-connected disability. The payment amount you receive will depend on your VA disability rating, how much you receive from other military benefit payments, and if you have a spouse or dependents.

The disability rating ranges from 0-100%, increasing in increments of 10. You can receive compensation with a rating as low as 10%, indicating you are 10% disabled. Veterans that are classified as 30% or more disabled can receive an additional payment for a spouse that is also disabled.

VA Disability Rating & SSD Determination

Because of the different qualification criteria, a veteran that is considered disabled by the VA may not meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disabled. While the VA allocates payments on a sliding scale of total disability (100%) to partial disability (as low as 10%), the SSA will only determine you to be “disabled” or “not disabled.”

However, having a high disability rating (70% or more) from the VA is a helpful indicator for the SSA when you apply for Social Security Disability. VA disability ratings are almost always given“great weight” when considering an applicant’s degree of disability. It may also work to your advantage that the SSA considers all injuries and illnesses, not only those that are connected to your military service.

Veterans With A VA Compensation Rating Of 100% P&T

Even a VA compensation rating of 100% P&T (permanently and totally disabled) cannot guarantee you will be approved for Social Security Disability. However, it does entitle you toexpedited application processing for SSD benefits. The SSA will make an effort to process your application quickly. Chances are high that they will determine that someone with a 100% P&T disability rating also meets the definition of “disabled” under the Social Security Disability Insurance program.

    Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does building a well-established website such as yours require a large amount of
    work? I’m completely new to running a blog but I do
    write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a
    blog so I can easily share my personal experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
