Frequently Asked Questions

How do Military Retirement benefits or VA disability benefits affect eligibility for SSDI?

 

Because the Social Security Administration (SSA) is a completely separate entity from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), it is possible to receive benefits from both organizations concurrently. In many cases, however, even veterans receiving 100% disability benefits from the VA are denied by Social Security, so it is always advisable to seek legal counsel before proceeding with an application.

 

Unlike SSI (Supplemental Security Income), Social Security Disability Insurance is not need-based, but rather based upon an individual's capacity for gainful employment. Therefore, receiving military retirement benefits will not affect a candidates eligibility for SSDI.

 

If you are a disabled veteran receiving military retirement or VA disability benefits and you are considering applying for SSDI, contact a qualified Social Security lawyer now.
