It is possible to receive disability benefits from both the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Social Security. However you must file separate applications and the criteria for each program is different. You may find that you qualify for disability benefits through one program but not the other. For more information, see Social Security Disability and Veterans Affairs Disability — How Do They Compare?

For more information about qualifying and applying for disability benefits with Social Security, go to our Disability Benefits page.
