In Texas single and 985 a month entitles you to other benefits including food stamps and medicaid. Don't forget that a VA Pension means that the US Government has certified that you are disabled and you really need to work with your Social Worker. Everyone who is a patient at VA has a Social Worker by the way.

Good Luck

Pete,you might be right,,however, he could win the lottery.....so why take a chance?

i was on pension 10% when i won my 30% sc and pension, they said i was awarded

both. however i got sc by their choice and said i could change any time i wanted. so

if i change ,my wife works, to pension at 30% would i be better off. i do have secondary claims in. could i change back to sc if it is more?

skunk, if your wife works full-time, you are probably better off w/comp, which is why the VA probably said that.

disabledveteran, jmo, but if someone is on pension they shouldn't be wasting their money on the lottery.
