Camp Lejeune Benefits and SSDI


Camp Lejeune is a United States Marine Corps base located in Jacksonville, North Carolina. From the 1950s through the 1980s, the water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated with toxic chemicals, which led to a number of serious health problems for service members and their families. As a result, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has established a program to provide medical benefits to those who served at Camp Lejeune during this time period.

While many people are aware of the Camp Lejeune benefits program, fewer may be aware of another potential source of financial assistance: Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. In fact, some people who are eligible for Camp Lejeune benefits may also be eligible for SSDI benefits.

When determining financial eligibility for SSDI Social Security only considers money from actual hours worked therefore any lump sum benefit of payment form a Camp Lejeune related claim would have no bearing on your SSDI eligibility.

If you are off of work for medical reasons always call a disability attorney to check, you SSDI eligibility.  Simply because your receiving payments from another program does not mean you won't be able to draw SSDI also.
