Are veterans entitled to Social Security disability benefits?

Just recently this Georgia disability benefits and veterans' issues blog discussed the prevalence of American veterans who receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Disability benefits are available to those men and women who suffer from long-term illnesses and injuries that prevent them from earning sufficient incomes to meet their needs. Individuals who have served in the armed forces are often part of this population but may not be aware of their rights to pursue benefits.

Many veterans receive Social Security disability benefits

Social Security disability benefits are a financial lifeline for millions of Americans who cannot work due to long-term debilitating illnesses and injuries. What Georgia residents may not know, though, is that there is a large subset of the disability benefits-receiving population who are former members of our nation's military. Disabled veterans do receive and can apply for Social Security disability benefits to help maintain their needs after their periods of service have ended.

What are compassionate allowances?

Compassionate allowances is an important program through the Social Security Administration and its Social Security disability program that disabled individuals should be familiar with. Because Social Security disability can be complicated, disabled individuals may have many questions concerning compassionate allowances and Social Security disability benefits in general.

The work history component of Social Security disability

Disability may seem unlikely to many people, however, a 20-year old worker has a 25 percent chance of becoming disabled prior to reaching retirement age. This makes Social Security disability (SSD) insurance benefits all the more important to understand. Social Security disability benefits are available to disabled individuals who suffer from a medical condition that is so severe that it prevents them from working and is expected to last for 12 months or longer or result in death. Social Security disability is a program workers pay into during their work years.
