Dual Eligibility: Simultaneous VA and SSD Benefits

Veterans who meet the eligibility criteria for both VA benefits and Social Security benefits can receive them concurrently. These benefits serve distinct purposes and are administered by separate entities. While there may be overlap in certain cases, it’s important to understand that eligibility for one program does not guarantee eligibility for the other.

Balancing Work and 100% VA Disability Rating: Understanding TDIU Rating

Veterans with a 100% VA “Schedular” rating have no limitations on working. However, the “Total Disability Individual Unemployability” (TDIU) rating assesses the veteran’s ability to find and retain employment given their rated conditions. It also takes into account the percentage of work time that may be lost due to related illness, treatments, and other factors. If the VA designates the veteran as 100% unable to work under the TDIU rating, they are prohibited from engaging in “substantial gainful employment.” In simpler terms, their earned annual income must not exceed the poverty threshold.

Protected Work Environment: A Potential Exception

Nevertheless, a veteran’s earned annual income may surpass the poverty threshold if they work in a protected work environment, such as a family business or sheltered workshop. In such cases, the specific and significant accommodations made for the veteran to continue working play a crucial role.

Maintaining the Balance: Seeking Expert Guidance

Navigating the intricacies of work and 100% VA disability rating requires careful consideration. Seeking expert guidance is essential to understand the implications and ensure compliance with VA regulations. Our experienced team is ready to assist you in finding the right balance and maximizing your benefits.

Protecting Your Compensation: Tax Exemption for VA Benefits

Good News! The VA recognizes the importance of providing financial support to veterans who have service-connected disabilities. As part of this commitment, the compensation benefits awarded to eligible veterans are exempt from income tax.

Continuing Disability Payments for Surviving Spouses: Understanding the Process

No, a veteran’s disability payments are not automatically continued for a surviving spouse after the veteran’s death. Instead, the surviving spouse must file for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) to receive benefits following the veteran’s passing. Our law office is here to provide dedicated assistance throughout this process.
