On Tuesday, the Supreme Court recognized that disabled Veterans might need more flexibility with regards to filing deadlines, particularly when missing a deadline is due to the very disability being alleged. Justice Alito delivered the unanimous ruling in Henderson v. Shinseki, in which he stressed “Congress’ longstanding solicitude for veterans.” It’s nice that the Supremes have given Disabled Veterans something that has been written into the Regulations for Social Security claimants for many years.
