New Expedited Disability Process for Veterans
Social Security has announced a new process in an attempt to expedite the disability process for veterans. This expedited process would be available to veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation rating of 100% Permanent and Total. This new process will treat these veterans applications as high priority. To be eligible, the veteran must inform Social Security when applying and provide their VA notification letter. This process does not guarantee an approval, but does expedite the claims processing period. The veteran must still meet the eligibilit criteria for disability similar to other claimants.
