The Veteran reported being in receipt of Social Security Disability (SSD) and in a January 2020 statement, the Veteran
indicated he received SSD when he stopped working in 2004. These Social Security records may contain evidence that pertains
to the Veteran's claims before the Board. As such, VA must make efforts at this time to obtain any outstanding records.

What happens if we don’t take Medicare Part B?
It’s very important to understand the consequences of not taking Part B, which you do not have to take
Social Security benefits are often available to the disabled veteran. There are plenty of twists and turns here though and the benefits aren't anywhere close to being the same. You may be eligible for one but not the other! The VA rates you on the degree of disability that was incurred while you were on active duty. Those 10 point increments are added up with the very strange VA math that's used to determine your overall rating. The SSA rates you as either totally disabled and unable to work at all or not. Often enough age will play into it and the SSA will see you as employable until age 55 and then you're pretty much over the hill and the SSA will give you a break. If you are eligible for both SSA and VA benefits, study them carefully to learn how best to use the services provided. There is some overlap that you may not need and there are personal decisions you need to make about your overall health care and you need to be aware of all of it. These are great benefits and it's worth your time to learn all you can about them.
Type in your key words and choose a couple of years to look at. Try different combinations of key words
as you go along. Remember that BVA cases do not establish a precedent so even if your case seems similar,
you have to repeat the path that other successful appeals have taken.
