VA Disability vs. Social Security Disability

VA Disability vs. Social Security Disability
By Nicholas Wearne, Associate Attorney

While I am not completely familiar with the process of applying and acquiring Veteran’s Disability Benefits, I have many clients who have applied for and obtained VA disability benefits.  
The law states that the judge is supposed to take the approval of Veteran’s Disability Benefits into consideration when making a determination regarding Social Security Disability Benefits.  
While the law merely says the judge has to take it into consideration, my experience is it tends to hold a lot of weight with them.  If are a disabled veteran and want to apply for Social Security Disability Benefits as well, contact Snow Carpio and Weekley for a free consultation.
