You may be able to get SSDI, if you paid into the system, during the past 10 yrs. A friend's son gets 100% from VA, full disability from NH state employee disability and SSDI. As an employee of the PA DOC you may have paid state retirement, rather than SS, in which case you may not be able to collect SS until age 66 or 67. jmo

Yes, good point PR......

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
