Veterans with serious disabilities may be entitled to disability benefits from the Veterans Administration, as well as Social Security Disability benefits. The medical evidence to support either of these claims, is usually physicians and other medical providers affiliated with local Veterans Administration hospitals and clinics. These VA medical providers are often the most important piece of evidence in a Social Security Disability claim.
In order to assist Veterans in perfecting and developing Social Security Disability claims, VA medical providers are directed by regulation, to assist the Veteran by providing medical records and filling out functional capacity questionnaires. It is the duty of the VA medical provider, to complete non-VA forms, including Social Security Disability forms, as quickly as possible. This regulation, to obtain vital medical evidence, has helped Social Security Disability attorney and lawyer, Randy Zeldin, Esq. to secure benefits for deserving Veterans.
