Veterans Disability FAQs

If I receive Veteran’s benefits, am I eligible for Social Security benefits too?

While you can receive both benefits at the same time, securing Veteran’s benefits doesn’t automatically make you eligible for Social Security benefits or vice versa.  Each program has their own requirements and application process.  You’ll need to review each program’s requirements to determine your eligibility.

How long does the VA typically take to decide on a claim?
