The men and women who served our country in the military can count on Social Security to be there for them.
Active duty military members earn credits toward Social Security retirement benefits. Wounded Warriors can receive expedited handling of their claims to receive disability benefits. There are also survivor benefits for young children and spouses of veterans who have died.
