If you are a Veteran and have qualified through the Veteran's Administration for 100% service-connected disability benefits, you are entitled to an expedited review of your Social Security Disability case. Disability benefits through the Veterans Administration and disability benefits through the Social Security Administration require separate applications. However, Veterans who have already been determined to be 100% service-connected through the VA can receive expedited processing of disability claims from the Social Security Administration. Disability benefits through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application. The expedited process is used for military service members who become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurred. If you are a Veteran, call our office for free to find out if you qualify for Social Security's expedited review process - 1-801-322-2121.
