Social Security disability when on VA disability

Social Security disability when on VA disability

April 4, 2011 by admin

I could not find a definitive answer, but it appears that Social Security disability benefits are largely independent of VA disability benefits. In other words, receiving VA disability need not necessarily reduce your Social Security disability benefits.

Please contact the SSA directly to verify for your case.

Military service members can receive expedited processing of disability claims from Social Security. Benefits available through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application.
