The Social Security Administration has created a “wounded warrirors” website at www.ssa.gov/woundedwarriors.
The site explains what types of Social Security Benefits a military service member who became disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001 might be eligible for, how to apply, how to speed up the decision and benefits for familly members.
The site also has links to a publication “Disability Benefits for Wounded Warriors” which is a must read.
Answering these broad-based questions isn’t easy. Help is a phone call away. You can contact Nancy Cavey, an experienced long-term disability attorney at 727-894-3188.
