Many Veterans with severe disabilities do not realize that they may be able to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you are unable
to perform substantial work because of your disability, you may wish to apply for benefits. To apply, you may contact 1-800-772-1213 to request an appointment, or you may apply on our
website at www.socialsecurity.gov.
For more information on programs and services Social Security provides to support Veterans and Wounded Warriors, visit our Veterans page at www.socialsecurity.gov/people/veterans/.
If you already receive an SSDI or SSI benefit based on disability, Social Security offers additional programs for people receiving benefits who want to work.
