Veterans may apply for expedited disability benefits

Service to one's country through voluntary military duty is one of the noblest undertakings that a Fayetteville resident may choose to perform. Soldiers in all branches of the military put their lives on the line in order to ensure that the freedom of other Americans is protected, no matter what the cost. Though many service men and women are able to return home to their families and live productive lives after their terms of service have ended, others bring with them the lasting injuries of their tours of duty and the traumas they endured as soldiers.

When a soldier becomes a veteran after their period of military service is over, then they may be eligible for benefits through the Department of Veterans' Affairs. They may also be eligible for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. When a veteran applies for disability benefits, their application is placed on an expedited schedule so that a determination of their eligibility is made in a timely manner.

Receiving disability benefits does not preclude a veteran from also receiving veterans' benefits, although a veteran's application for disability benefits does not automatically guarantee that the Social Security Administration will approve their request for support. Every application for benefits is reviewed on its own and veterans who wish to apply for disability benefits can enlist the help of legal professionals who provide Social Security disability benefits services as part of their practices.

Participating in active military duty is not something every American is willing to do. Some soldiers pay the ultimate sacrifice to their country and never return home; many others suffer injuries that stay with them throughout their lives. Injured soldiers have rights to benefits through a variety of governmental sources and need only apply to begin the process of finding financial support after military service is over.
