Are you a disabled veteran who has applied for Social Security Disability benefits? You can get both Social Security Disability and Veterans’ benefits. There is nothing that stops you from getting two federal disability checks from two separate federal agencies. Think about it: medical records are the basis of your claim for both Social Security Disability and Veterans’ benefits. Make sure that both the Disability Examiner or your VA and Social Security Disability Claims Examiner are aware of all of your medical treatment, including your military treatment, names of your doctors and addresses of your providers. That will make it easier for your records to be gathered by both the Social Security Administration and the Veterans Administration.
You can speed up the approval of both disability claims by making sure that both the Social Security Administration and the Veterans Administration are aware of all of the medical treatment you’re receiving.
