National Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyers for Veterans
As a Social Security Disability law firm, we are contacted by many people who have questions about their eligibility for benefits and about the interaction between different types of government benefits. One common question we receive is about veterans benefits. Disabled veterans have often heard from friends or family members that they are not eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
We have provided below some important information about SSDI and veterans benefits. To learn more, contact Bohm Matsen, LLP. We help people in California and throughout the nation obtain SSDI benefits.
Facts About SSDI and Veterans Benefits
Key information you should know:
- Eligibility requirements for the two programs are different. People who receive veterans disability benefits are not automatically eligible for SSDI benefits.
- You do not have to qualify for veterans benefits before seeking SSDI benefits.
- You may receive service-connected veterans disability benefits and full SSDI benefits (this does not apply to non-service-connected veterans benefits).
- While you may be eligible to receive both service-connected veterans disability benefits and SSDI, the income you receive from service-connected veterans benefits may make you ineligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), because SSI has income eligibility requirements.
Visit our page on SSDI to learn more about eligibility requirements. Feel free to contact our attorneys for assistance. We have helped thousands of clients in SSDI and SSI claims.
