Roughly 1.1 million of veterans have a disability rating of 70% or greater, which greatly interferes with their ability to work. For these veterans, VA disability benefits may not be enough to make up for lost income. In these cases, they may be eligible for social security disability (SSD) benefits.
The best time to hire a disability attorney or disability advocate is before you begin the SSD application process. Though both disability attorneys and disability advocates know what information would best support your SSD application and can help you prepare for appeals, disability attorneys usually have more experience and training with trial prep, trial practice, and understanding legal precedent that could help during an appeal.
