Veterans disability ratings and SSDI benefits
« on: May 01, 2016, 08:35:40 pm »
I just read social security bulletin 73, 4, 2014 that gives some excellent reference information and study data regarding vets that have received a disability rating of 100% and how that rating differs from the ratings from SSA. The bulletin is relevant to all vets that have a disability rating. I cannot post the link or upload the article. I will gladly share, so feel free to send me a pm. Happy reading!
