Social Security pays disability benefits through the Social Security disability insurance program or through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program to military members or veterans who meet Social Security’s definition of disability. If a military member or veteran sustained an illness, injury, or wound while on active duty status on or after October 1, 2001, they will receive expedited processing of their disability claim, regardless of how or where the disability occurred.   
 
See Disability Benefits For Wounded Warriors for more information on our programs, if you qualify, and how you can apply for benefits.
