SSA, Pentagon Aiming To Centralize Electronic Disability Claims Process

The Social Security Administration and the Defense Department are partnering to establish a new electronic disability claims process for service members, veterans and their dependents.

SSA said Monday the nationwide project simplifies social security processing by compiling healthcare information in a centralized data base.

Social Security disability case processing sites will submit a single request to the centralized facility to receive military medical records, SSA said.

The joint pilot project started in 60 military treatment facilities in Colorado, North Carolina, Oregon, Virginia and Washington.

Those states now receive electronic medical records within 72 hours of the request, SSA said, and the program entered the first phase of nationwide expansion as of Monday.
