you cannot sell your remaining disability like you can with some settlements, i believe its illegal when it comes to va disability compensation. your compensation should count as income though it has for all the things i've done. perhaps check out your local veterans center and see if they can refer you to someone who can help.

Something is amiss here.  With my disability income from VA, I can go to any car dealer, pick a car out that I want, sign my name (no money) and drive it home.  Yes, I did that, and more than once.  So have others.   Of course it depends on your credit score.  If you have poor credit, then no, you can not borrow money, but that is independent of whether or not you get VA compensation.  

If a bank or credit union denies you credit, they have to send you a letter.  With that letter you can pull a credit score.  Or, you can sign up at a place like Credit Karma and get a credit score for free.  I recommend you do just that.  

Now, if, as Tbird suggested you are trying to "sell" your VA benefits to a place like JG Wentworth that buys monthly settlements for cash, then That may not be permitted by law.    


Did you know you can get social security disability and also VA disability?  Some people dont know that, so, if you dont apply for social security, they wont send it to you!  

I suggest the most likely thing going on here is you need to better manage your finances if you can not make it to the end of the month.  It could involve doing things you dont want to do, too.  Typical money "drains" are things like living in too expensive of an area, paying too much for housing or car payments, and sometimes, forking out too much for pets.  Of course, the "big 2" mean you will likely never be able to fix your income issues:  Drugs or Alcohol.  Of course, Im not accusing you of these issues, I mention them because I have spoken with others who have issues with them.  (I get offended when the VA asks me over and over and over if I have an alcohol or substance abuse; I always tell them no, and they ask me again and again and again.  Its like they assume because Im a Vet, I must have alcohol or drug abuse.  Its not true.  Yes, many do have these issues, I am not one of them, and you probably are not either.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
