Wounded Warriors may be able for Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security Administration established an expedited claims process for servicemembers who were disabled on or after Oct. 1, 2001, regardless of where or how the disability occurred. Individuals in the military can apply for and receive benefits even while receiving military pay. Visit the Social Security Administration’s Disability Benefits for Wounded Warriors website to find out everything you need to know about Social Security and military service, including a link to apply for disability benefits online.
