According to the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA), there are more than 20 million U.S. veterans living within the country. And what’s more, the number of disabled veterans in the country is concerning; the U.S. Census Bureau reports that the number of veterans with a service-related disability is more than 3.5 million, and nearly 100,000 of those disabled veterans have a disability rating of 70 percent or higher.
There are a wide variety of benefits available to disabled veterans. If you are a disabled Utah veteran, you have the right to benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA). A Utah veterans’ disability benefits attorney can help you to understand your right to benefits, file your claim for benefits, and appeal a denied claim.
Benefits You Are Entitled to as a Disabled Veteran
You have the right to seek benefits from the SSA if you are a disabled veteran. These benefits include, but are not limited to:
● Monthly Cash Benefits. Disabled veterans who are pre-retirement age and meet all the criteria can get access to monthly cash benefits. The amount of that benefit will be dependent on how much money you made during your working life.
● Health Insurance. Disabled veterans who qualify for this benefit are entitled to Medicare. Medicare is health insurance that not only covers your doctor visits, but your prescription drugs, and gives you a wide network of providers to choose from.
● Expedited Processing. Veterans who were discharged for a service connected disability and can provide their discharge papers are entitled to expediting processing of their claim.
You Deserve Your Full Benefit Amount
While you may be entitled to benefits through the SSA as a disabled veteran, the sad truth is the SSA is often slow to process claims, and may deny your claim if your application is not filled out correctly and in full. To help you avoid your claim being denied, and to improve your claim being not only approved, but processed as quickly as possible, you need to work with an experienced Utah Social Security disability attorney.
