you probably mean you are getting social security disability not SSI since that is Supplemental Security Income (welfare) if you were getting VA pension and SSD and now you are 30% SC it will not affect your SSD payments either

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hello Skunk,

SSI is a federal needs bases program like VA Pension. Since you can only draw one needs program at a time, they deduct dollar for dollar.

So yes, they will deduct your SSI payment the amount you recieve from your 30% award.

The VA SC 30% is an earned benefit like SSDI. You can draw both at the same time without a deduction on your monthly awards.

There are no taxes on VA 30% SC benefits.

Hope this clears it up for you.

WHAT I MEAN IS WILL MY SSI PAYMENTS GO UP OR DOWN ACCORDING TO HOW MUCH

SC DISABILITY I DRAW. WILL MY SSI PAYMENTS BE AFFECTED BY MY SERVICE CONNECTED 30% RATING . WHEN I WAS ON PENSION THEY REDUCED SSI BY AMOUNT OF PENSION I AWS GETTING , REALLY MAKING IT ALMOST THE SAME AS IF I WAS JUST ON SSI. SO I REALLY DIDNT GAIN BY BEING ON PENSION. I AM ASKING IF SC CONDITION IS EXEMPT FROM COUNTING AGAINST MY SSI AS INCOME OR HOW DOES IT WORK? TOTALLY CONFUSED

NO! Your SC is not exempt from counting against your SSI and they will take away every dollar you get on your 30% award, from your SSI monthly check.

Been there done that with my 30% SC & SSI.

OK ANOTHER STUPID QUESTION ON MY PART. WILL VA NOTIFY SSI OF SERVICE CONNECTED CHANGE OR WILL THEY DRAG ASS AND CAUSE OVERPAYMENT BY SSI.

I KNOW PENSION NOTIIED THEM EVERY TIME THERE WAS A CHANGE.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.
