Veterans, Active Duty Military and Social Security

Veterans, Active Duty Military and Social Security

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the day our country honors our active military members and veterans. On Veterans Day we continue to honor those ordinary people who have done and continue to do something extraordinary to ensure our freedom.

Although we honor them one day each year, Social Security is there to honor and help them every day. Social Security Disability benefits differ from those available through the Veterans Administration.

Those on active duty and receiving military pay should consider applying for Social Security Disability benefits if they are disabled and unable to work for a minimum of twelve consecutive months. Social Security Disability benefits is a separate application from any VA benefits.

At Jeffrey Freedman Attorneys, we appreciate the sacrifices our veterans, active military members and their families make to protect and defend our freedom. Over the years our firm has helped over 20,000 individuals with their Social Security Disability benefits from the application stage through appeals if denied. It would be our honor to assist you if you’re considering filing for Social Security Disability benefits.
