ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the number of wounded American soldiers who are approved for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability claims and initiatives of the Departments of Defense (DOD) and Veterans Affairs (VA). The study recommends SSA to consider a legislation on retroactive benefits. It suggests the VA and SSA collaboration to improve outreach to veterans on these benefits.
