Expedited Processing For Disabled Veterans
Beginning in March 2014, the Social Security Adminstration will expedite disability claims by veterans that have a 100% permanent and total disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These veteran applications will be treated as a high priority and decisions will be expedited by SSA. In order to receive the faster service, veteran’s must provide proof of their disability rating with their VA Notification Letter. You no longer need to be classified as a Wounded Warrior to receive expedited processing.
Although Social Security is not required to follow any decision made by VA, it can be powerful evidence in your social security claim.
If you or someone you know is a veteran who is seeking assistance with his/her social security disability claim, please call the Law Office of Sharon J. Meyers at 816-753-3929.
