Can I Get Veteran’s Disability and Social Security Disability Benefits at The Same Time?

Yes. You can get both Veteran’s Disability and Social Security Disability Benefits at the same time. They are separate and independent programs. Both have their own eligibility requirements. The receiving of either does not affect the eligibility of receiving the other benefit. So, it is strongly recommended that you apply for both. It is also important to apply for both since it can take a long time before decisions are made regarding your claims for either.
