SSD For Veterans

Are you a veteran of the U.S. armed forces? Are you now unable to work because of a physical or mental condition?

If you answered yes to both, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in addition to your service-related benefits. This can give you the extra money you need to afford medical care, pay your day-to-day bills, provide for your family and live comfortably.

At the Lubbock law firm of Becky D. Miller, we are here to help. Becky has 20 years of legal experience. She knows how to explore all your options for getting the greatest amount possible. She is knowledgeable about all types of conditions related to military service, including:

How Military Pensions Interact With SSD Benefits

Some military veterans are eligible for non-service-related pensions, which is the military's version of Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These types of pensions offset any SSI benefits you receive. The more money you receive from your pension, the less you will receive from SSI.

However, other veterans have significant impairments that are service-related. If this describes you, you will likely be able to gain SSD benefits on top of your military pay and TRICARE benefits.

In addition, if you were wounded in action after Oct. 1, 2001, you may be able to get your SSD benefits much quicker than normal. The Wounded Warriors Programs provides expedited help for those who were injured on active duty.
