Veterans Day has been a time to highlight those who have served and honor them through various ways.
Social Security takes part in honoring service members and Jack Myers with Social Security says it's not just something they do in November, but all year round.
Myers indicates if you were injured on or after October 1, 2001, your claims are eligible to be expedited. Additionally, if you are on active duty but incapacitated, that doesn't mean you can't receive social security benefits.
When filling out a disability application, Myers says to make a note on your application that you are veteran rated 100% permanent and total. 
For more information on both these programs or to apply, visit socialsecurity.gov.
