The #SocialSecurityAdministration recently reported it will be partnering with all #VeteransAdministrationMedicalCenters in order to provide #disability decisions to #veterans more quickly. Specifically, #SSA launched a computer system which allows receipt of medical records electronically. This means collecting medical records from the #VA will take a few days rather than a few weeks.
#SSA reportedly collects over 15 million medical records per year, so this is a great effort to make the administrative appeals process more efficient and effective. The new partnership will positively affect over 7,000 #VA facilities in the #UnitedStates and our #veterans in need. These new policies are in addition to a recently implemented policy which allows for expedited claim processing in cases where a #veteran has received a 100% service-connected #disability rating from the #DepartmentofVeteransAffairs.
If you are a #veteran in need of #SocialSecurityDisability, call Ricks Disability Aid today at (435) 200-5352. We can help file a new application, or step in and help at any stage of the process.
