skunk,you are going to have to be patient. bumping a post every hour does nothing but use up bandwidth and cost tbird . everyone on hadit is a volnteer and nobody sits around just to answer a post as it comes in.so be patient.

shunk,

simple fly is correct about that.

Do you have any other income besides VA, like SSI or SSD ?

Do you have a spouse that is employed ?

I would not think it wise to be switching back and forth

from VA Comp to Pension, back and forth.

Pick the highest paying one and stick with it.

If you recieve VA Disability SC'd Comp at 30 % or more and have dependents

you can file to get paid additional money for your dependents

and I don't think that applies to Pension Benefits.

jmho,

The choice is yours, as to which you want to receive, not the VA's. I would think you would pick the one that pays the most, monthly. Pension is currently $985 a month, if you don't have any other income. 30% comp currently pays $376 a month and other income doesn't matter. If you take the pension now and win retro, on other comp claims, the VA will recover the pension from your new award. I survived on pension for many yrs, before I won my 100% retro. My award was reduced by what I was paid in pension but I wouldn't have survived w/o it. The choice is yours. jmo
