Veterans Day: Show Your Support

We hope that our readers thank any service members they have as friends or family members tomorrow in appreciation of Veterans Day.

As we reported previously, many Veterans are entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Recently, a report on the website financialbuzz.com said that almost 60,000 Veterans receive benefits from SSDI, military retirement pay, and disability benefits from the Veteran Affairs, at the same time.

The website described this as a legal arrangement, saying that the Veterans who receive all three forms of benefits have a disability rating through the VA of at least 50 percent. Keep in mind, the VA uses a structured percentage system to determine if someone is disabled, meaning a veteran can be 50, 60, or 100 percent disabled.

However, the Social Security Administration uses a different system, where a person must be completely disabled and no longer able to work. It should be noted that the SSA has an expedited claims process for former military members. For more information about this process, you can contact our attorneys today.

As financialbuzz.com reported, the numbers it reported were disclosed through the Government Accountability Office.

Do I Need to Speak to an Attorney about Social Security Disability?

Remember to thank any current or former military members you know tomorrow for their brave service.

We suggest visiting our Social Security FAQ page if you have questions about benefits. Additionally, you can call our office today for a free consultation.

    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.

    - Michael M.

    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.

    - Billy S.

    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.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
