Veterans Groups Release Report on Impact of Social Security on Veterans

Nine veterans organizations have released a report titled, "Social Security: Serving Those Who Serve Our Nation." The report was created to address efforts by some in Congress who want to cut Social Security benefits. Among the information in the report is the following:

"Most of the more than 4,000 children who lost a parent since the beginning of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars now receive Social Security survivors’ benefits. More than 771,000 veterans receive Social Security disability benefits. Social Security currently pays benefits to over 9 million veterans—about 4 in 10 veterans today—and the vast majority of veterans will become Social Security beneficiaries in the future."
