This Veterans Day, Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano joins America in honoring all of our nation’s uniformed service members, and our firm expresses our sincerest appreciation for their incredible sacrifices. On this day, it is essential to reflect on the reasons for this national day of observance and remember the men and women who have sacrificed courageously to safeguard the freedoms we all enjoy.
Along with paying tribute to our nation’s heroes, our firm reminds these men and women of the range of Social Security benefits available to uniformed service members. In addition to survivors’ benefits for the families of fallen military heroes, Social Security offers expedited claim processing for certain military service members who become disabled while on active service.
It is also important to note that active duty and receipt of military pay will not necessarily preclude service members from receiving Social Security Disability benefits, so disabled veterans should not hesitate to apply if they are injured and unable to work. Importantly, our disability attorneys can answer any questions about veterans’ disability benefits that may arise.
Our nation’s veterans sacrifice selflessly for our country’s freedoms. Our firm is truly honored to represent injured veterans, and we proudly salute these brave men and women this Veterans Day.
