Your Veteran’s Disability Rating Can Help You Win Your Claim For Social Security Disability | Pinellas County Social Security Disability Attorney
It’s hard to meet the five-step sequential evaluation for Social Security disability benefits. But veterans have an advantage!
Are you a veteran who’s been given a disability rating by the Veterans Administration and are applying for Social Security disability benefits?
If the Veterans Administration found that your disability is “permanent and total” and “you are unable to secure and follow a substantially gainful occupation due to disability”, the administrative law judge in a Social Security hearing must give great weight to the Veterans’ Administration disability rating. The Veterans Administration’s finding will help you meet the five-step sequential evaluation and may make it easier for you to obtain your Social Security disability benefits
File a copy any VA disability ratings you’ve received with the Social Security Administration as this will help with your Social Security disability claim.
