If I am On Active Military Duty or a Recently Discharged Veteran, Will That Make a Difference in My Social Security Claim?
Yes! If you are filing for disability benefits let the Social Security Administration know that you are on active military duty of that you have recently been discharged and the Social Security Administration will handle your claim more quickly. However, be aware that if you are getting non-service connected VA disability benefits; your Social Security benefits can be reduced. You can have both VA service connected disability and Social Security Disability benefits!
