Members of the armed forces and veterans : Social Security is here for you!

On Veterans Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in the service of their country. Wounded warriors and their families are entitled to financial assistance through our disability program. Military personnel who have been injured while serving their country can rely on Social Security for financial assistance when they return to civilian life. Please spread the word about our Social Security Disability website,; if you’re a veteran or active-duty military personnel, disability. Help can help you achieve Social Security Disability Benefits.

There are numerous frequently asked questions concerning Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) on Disability Help web page. Social Security benefits are distinct from VA benefits, which require a separate application and can be found on this website. Those who have unfortunately became disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurred, can accelerate the processing of their Social Security disability claims.

If an active duty military service member is unable to work due to a disabling condition, they might consider asking for disability compensation. The payment of Social Security disability payments is not prohibited by being on active service or receiving military compensation.

Every day, we show our gratitude to the men and women who have served our country by treating them with the utmost respect. You can count on SSA when these brave men and women need us the most. They’ve worked hard for these privileges! Thank you for your consideration in forwarding this information to someone who might benefit from it.
