The Social Security Administration (SSA) announced on Feb. 19, 2014 that it will provide expedited processing for the Social Security disability applications of veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs disability compensation rating of 100 percent. SSA will treat these claims as high priority, although having a 100 percent rating does not guarantee an award of Social Security disability benefits. SSA will implement the new process in mid-March 2014.
