We have previously written on this blog about how disabled veterans are able to obtain Social Security disability benefits even when they are receiving disability benefits through the Veterans Administration. For vets with serious disabilities, having a dual disability income is a critical means of financial support.
Last month, the Social Security Administration announced a bit of good news for some veterans. Veterans who have been approved for a 100 percent disability compensation rating in the VA disability process will no longer have to wait as long to have their applications for Social Security disability approved. A new process aims to expedite such claims.
