Throughout the past month, Social Security has been honoring military service members and some of the way the agency makes those folks a priority.
As the nation honors the heroes who have sacrificed not only their lives but the everyday luxuries to serve our country, Jack Myers with Social Security is taking this opportunity to remind families that have lost a loved one that Social Security benefits may be payable to surviving family members including spouses and children.
According to Myers, Social Security expedites the disability claims of veterans. Myers says this is something they do through their Wounded Warriors Initiative. He implores veterans to apply for both their Social Security benefits and VA Disability benefits.
