Veterans Can Collect Social Security Disability

Are you a veteran? We would like to salute you for your service to this country this Memorial Day weekend! Our Tulsa disability attorneys greatly appreciate your commitment—without your dedication, we would not have the freedoms we have. If you are a veteran, you should know that you have special rights if you are disabled. Through the Social Security Administration (SSA), Wounded Warriors can receive expedited processing for disability claims, making their ability to collect Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) faster.

However, prior to applying for benefits, you should know a few things. Primarily, the SSA uses a different system than that of the Veterans Administration. The VA uses a percentage-based model, where veterans can be considered 60, 70, or even 80 percent disabled in order to obtain benefits. Unlike the VA, in order to obtain SSDI, the SSA requires that a person must show that he or she has a 100 percent disability rating.

While the SSA’s model may seem rigid, it does not mean you should not apply for SSDI if you are not considered 100 percent disabled by the VA. By working with an attorney, you may be able to prove that your disability fits within the SSA’s criteria.

Additionally, our Tulsa disability lawyers often help veterans maximize benefits between the two agencies, allowing veterans to obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible.

Our Tulsa Disability Attorneys Help Veterans Obtain Benefits

In order to obtain benefits, you may have to provide the SSA with medical evidence of your disability, including records from the VA. An attorney can help you put these records together and walk you through the Social Security Disability process.

We have a page dedicated to veterans and SSDI, which may answer many of your questions about benefits eligibility. If you have additional questions, you can contact our office by calling the number listed above or by using the form located on the side of this page.

Troutman & Troutman, P.C. – Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyers


    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.
