Vets deserve more than talk on Veteran’s Day

On Veteran’s Day, we honor the millions of men and women who have protected our freedoms by serving in our nation’s military. A recent editorial pointed out that politicians of every stripe love to talk about their support for our veterans, but action speaks much louder than words.

The Forbes editorial makes the case that Congress needs to do more than talk: it should expand programs such as Social Security Disability that give vets real help when they need it. In fact, the publication points out that more than 600,000 veterans – many of whom were injured in combat – are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

That is the kind of assistance that veterans and millions of other Americans count on when injury or illness prevents them from working.

Think about this, too, on Veteran’s Day: SSDI/SSD also supports Gold Star families with survivor benefits.

And of course, for those vets who are fortunate enough to make it to retirement age, Social Security also provides retirement benefits.

Add it all up and more than nine million vets – or about 40 percent of all veterans – receive some form of Social Security. The brave men and women who served in the military – and their families – today comprise about one-third of all Social Security beneficiaries.

In fact, over the course of their lifetimes, most vets will collect benefits from this vital federal program – benefits they have earned and benefits they deserve.

Our Raleigh attorneys are proud to help vets and their families fight for those earned, deserved SSDI benefits.
