My SSDI is greater than VA non-service connected 100% disability & I know there is a deduction to be taken from VA amount, but will I lose it entirely or will I be able to get a small amount from VA?

The monthly gross amount of your Social Security Disability or regular Social Security retirement is deducted dollar for dollar. If you have a wife, her SS/SSD (also) is deducted dollar for dollar.

Thanks for clarifying that for me. Was hoping I would be able to keep something,. Looks like a no go, lose it all. Thanks again.

Actually the VA will allow deductions for Medical Expenses or for being in a nursing home. So if part of your SSD check goes for medical or needed assisted living you can get some or all of your pension.
