Memorial Day is just around the corner and the Social Security Administration is doing what they can to help honor veterans, and assist them with their social security needs. The SSA will at times, expedite the process for veterans applying for social security benefits, to help them get the financial help that they need.
Jessica Goodman with the Social Security Administration appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show, and says that the SSA wants veterans to know what services social security can provide to them.
Under the right circumstances, the Social Security Administration will expedite the application process for veterans, so they can receive social security benefits faster.
Goodman says a usual claim with the Social Security Administration typically takes around six months to process, where as a veteran with a disability will usually take around two months.
