Eliminate Concurrent Receipt Of Retirement Pay And Disability Compensation For Disabled Veterans


htforjc

Question

Does anyone on here have knowledge or information on the likelihood of concurrent receipt being eliminated? I read an article about the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) considering eliminating concurrent receipt being paid to veterans who have retired with 20 or more years; and receives disability pay will no longer receive disability pay if approved. I find this to be very disturbing considering how hard most veterans had to fight to get this earned benefit. I posted the article link below. Any insight would be helpful.

It is disturbing, but I am wondering what the likely hood of this taking effect really is. I'm very concerned that if this happens,veterans will loose their houses, cars, or worse. I cannot believe how this country's politicians can wave the American flag and say we support veterans, but are always looking for ways to take earned benefits away from veterans. Recently in the news you hear the outcry about paying college athletes a compensation for playing sports or to cover injuries. What about veterans? Shouldn't they receive benefits for injuries while serving their country without the constant worry of a politician wanting to take it away?
