The observance of National Military Appreciation and Memorial Day in May offered an opportunity think about and show support for members of the armed forces.

One program that honors military members is Social Security. For families of service members who died in action, survivor’s benefits are available. For veterans who return with injuries, Social Security Disability benefits are provided through the Wounded Warriors program.

These benefits are expedited to allow veterans to get them quickly. However, veterans still must show that their condition meets the government’s definition of a disability.

To be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, applicants must have a medical condition that keeps them from working. The condition must have lasted for at least a year or be expected to end in death.

The benefits provided by Social Security Disability differ from those of the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application.

It can be confusing and exasperating trying to figure out whether you might qualify for Social Security Disability benefits and to deal with the application and government red tape. But you should know that help is available.
