Veterans’ Eligibility For Disability Benefits

Disabled veterans make up a significant portion of those receiving benefits from one of Social Security’s programs. Currently, 9.4 million military veterans receive Social Security benefits, meaning that about 25 percent of all beneficiaries are veterans. With veterans from the Vietnam War entering retirement, the government expects veterans to remain a large portion of Social Security beneficiaries. Veterans and current military personnel can speak with a Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyer to learn about how the disability process applies to them.

3.6 million World War II veterans and 2.8 Korean War veterans currently receive Social Security benefits, mostly coming from the retirement fund. For younger veterans, if they receive benefits, most of them receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

Disabled military personnel should consider applying for SSDI benefits as soon as they can following their injury. A Tulsa Social Security Disability attorney can assist them in determining the options they have. Even if a veteran remains on active duty or is able to work in a limited fashion, he or she can still be eligible to begin receiving SSDI benefits. Additionally, veterans qualify for an expedited SSDI process, which, for non-veterans, can take up to several years until they begin receiving disability financial support.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
