If you are disabled veteran-unemployable-100%- can you apply for SSDI?

MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

If you have worked enough to qualify for social security disability benefits, you will be able to apply for benefits.

MyVirtualCPA :

You must have at least 10 years (40 quarters) of social security credit

MyVirtualCPA :

Most military positions earn you social security credits

Customer:

I was informed the first time,by social security rep,that I could not recieve benefits due to my enployment with the civil service.

MyVirtualCPA :

Okay...that makes things different. You have credit for work that is NOT covered by social security

MyVirtualCPA :

You have Civil Service retirement instead

Customer:

Yes, but I have my 40 QTRS.

MyVirtualCPA :

However, if you also have work that you did earn social security in addition to your Civil Service earnings then you may get a benefit, although it could be reduced

MyVirtualCPA :

You are subject to the WEP ... which reduces your benefit

Customer:

yes, but I could apply?

MyVirtualCPA :

Yes, you can apply

Customer:

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
