Social Security to Expedite Decisions on Disability Claims Filed by Veterans

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has announced a new initiative to speed up the processing of disability claims filed by Veterans who have a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation rating of 100% Permanent & Total. These applications will be treated as high priority and decisions will be expedited similar to the way that SSA now handles disability claims fromWounded Warriors. SSA plans to begin the new process next month.
