Ssdi-retired Military

Rate this question

Question

I read Hadit on a nightly basis and have posted once before. This is my second posting, and I really appreciate the helpful replies to my first post.

I am a 60 year military retiree who has been recently terminated from my civilian job. I am VA disabled-70% PTSD, 20% diabetes, & a mulitude of 10% ratings which combines for 90%.

Will my retired military pension preclude me from drawing SSDI, or will it result in a reduction in the amount of SSDI? I am also applying for unemployability as well. I also have private disablity insurance (took it out years ago), but have not persued that yet.

Thanks for your help.

VA disability awards will not have any effect on your SSDI benefit. You can recieve both.

I can't say about your Military retirement, hopefully someone thats dealt with it before can help.

The only effect on your SS or SSDI will be that your military retirement is taxed (treated as income) - therefore, depending on your total household income (if wife works) it could make some of your SS taxable.

Outside of that it has no effect on your SS or SSDI at all.
