When Veterans File for Social Security Disability

What happens when Veterans file for Social Security? What challenges are ahead of them when doing so?

I recently had the opportunity to write a guest post for a great blog called The Improv Caregiver. This is a blog created by Alisha Overstreet, a mom, wife, and blogger who writes about her life caring for her husband and her disabled child.

We both blog about the challenges of the disabled

Alisha cares for her husband who suffered injuries after two deployments, and a child, who was recently diagnosed with Asperger’s (also known as High Functioning Autism).

We met through an online group for bloggers. When we struck up a conversation, we figured out that we have a lot to talk about when it comes to the rights of the disabled.

Our common ground was the issues faced by the disabled. But we each have our version of the difficulties Veterans face after they served their country.

So when Alisha suggested I write about the difficulties Veterans face when filing for Social Security and how to improve their chances at winning their case, I was honored.

When Veterans File For Social Security Benefits

You can read my guest post directly at Alisha’s blog, The Improv Caregiver.  Where I go over the challenges Veteran’s face when filing for Social Security. In the post, I give tips and suggestions on how Veterans can make adjustments to their treatment records to increase their chances at winning their claim.

A few months ago I wrote a post about the importance of medical records for a Social Security claim. I think it’s a great addition to the guest post and everyone filing a claim can benefit from it.

Don’t forget to take a look around and read other articles in Alisha’s blog. You can find a lot of information about Veterans, great articles about Autism and mental health. If you happen to be taking care of a Veteran or even a civilian disabled person, you will see great articles about the life and voice of the caregiver.

Alisha is very inspiring and that’s why I was so happy to write this article.

I hope you enjoy the post and her blog.

Also, if you were denied disability and you are looking to appeal with “better” evidence, I created a course about using a Residual Functional Capacity Report to add to your medical records. This is a form you can take to your doctor to complete in support of your claim. The course includes forms for physical or mental impairments and instructions on how to ask your doctor to complete them. You can take a “free sneak peek” to see if this course is for you.
