Expedited Social Security Disability Process For Veterans
US Military

On March 18, 2014, the Social Security Administration announced an expedited process for disability claims filed by veterans with a 100% Permanent & Total (P&T) rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Bringing the process in line with the treatment of Wounded Warriors’ disability claims, the new procedures promise high priority and expedited decisions.

The new processes will cut red tape and backlogs that currently plague processing. Veterans are instructed to: tell the Social Security Administration about their 100% P&T rating; present their VA notification letters indicating the 100% P&T rating; complete the application process by applying online here: Apply Online For Disablility Benefits or calling the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778); or calling/visiting a local Social Security office, found here: https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp
