" "Social Security honors the people who risk their lives to protect our freedom. Our disability program is an important part of our obligation to wounded warriors and their families.

For military members who return home with injuries, Social Security is a resource they can turn to. If you know any wounded veterans, please let them know about Social Security’s Wounded Warriors website.

The Wounded Warriors website answers many commonly asked questions, and shares other useful information about disability benefits, including how veterans can receive expedited processing of disability claims. Benefits available through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application.

The expedited process is used for military service members who become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurs.

Even active duty military who continue to receive pay while in a hospital or on medical leave should consider applying for disability benefits if they’re unable to work due to a disabling condition. Active duty status and receipt of military pay doesn’t necessarily prevent payment of Social Security disability benefits. Although a person can’t receive Social Security disability benefits while engaging in substantial work for pay or profit, receipt of military payments should never stop someone from applying for disability benefits from Social Security.

Social Security is proud to support veterans and active duty members of the military. Let these heroes know they can count on us when they need to take advantage of their earned benefits. Our webpages are easy to share on social media and by email.

    Military staff are the people who keep us safe and permit us to inhale easily. The dangers they take have the right to be perceived.

    Military members are the real worriers. Active duty member services are the way to greet them right. I really salute them.

    Wiktionary has grown beyond a standard dictionary and now includes a thesaurus, a rhyme guide, phrase books,
    language statistics and extensive appendices. We aim to include not only the definition of a word, but also enough information to really understand it.
    Thus etymologies, pronunciations, sample quotations, synonyms, antonyms and translations are included. – https://nex1music.ir/دانلود-سریال-خواب-زده/
