For SSDI, no way. Your VA comp does not and will not affect SSDI.

On the other hand, if you filed for SSI which is not SSDI then it does effect it.

A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a monthly benefit for people who have worked in the past and paid Social Security taxes. SSDI benefits are paid to people who are unable to work for a year or more because of their disability. As long as you paid into Social Security, you should qualify.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal assistance program designed to provide income to aged, blind, or disabled people who have limited assets with which to support themselves. It is income based and if you are a disabled veteran rated 50% or above then you make too much money for SSI.

So with that being said, should one wait on a VA decision on their claims before applying for SSDI? Or should you start the SSDI application process at the same time?

If you are not working apply now.
