What would you like to do?
If you live on Social Security Disability and a VA pension can these be garnished and if you homestead your house is it protected from liens?
All Social Security and VA benefits are exempt from creditor actions. In regards to homestead protection, that is determined by the laws of the state of residency. Some state…s such as Florida have unlimited exemption amount, others have as little as $3,000. A lien can in some cases be placed against the property. I am sorry I cannot be more specific without knowing the state where you reside. If you feel I can be of further assistance please feel free to email.
Can you still collect total social security and keep your VA non service connected disability pension?
Answer . There is an income threshold for the VA non-service-connected disability pension. So, it depends upon how much you receive from Social Security whether you would b…e eligible for any amount of the disability pension. The income threshold was/is $10,929.00, but should be increasing in December 2007. Check out the va.gov website for more info.
Answer Absolutely! Congratulations, you old double dipper.
You can not receive both even if your dead spouse could
Contact the social security on their web site. It is a good site and easy to use.
Well first you need to apply for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration. You can apply at your local SSA office or by calling the 1-800 number.
Yes you can and most often are entitled to both. Each makes it's own separate decisions though. One doesn't automatically make you eligible for the other. You must apply f…or each one separately. Most people consult an attorney for military disability through service groups usually that can be found with offices at major VA hospitals.
If you are sufficienty fit to care for and transport a child, maybe. I f you have a mental disability , probably not. Honestly consider your motivations for wanting to adopt. …Your ONLY reason should be for the benefit of the child.
While you are incarcerated yes, but most can generally gain this back once they are not incarcerated.
Once you reach retirement age, your Social Security Disability benefits convert to regular retirement benefits, payable at the same rate. You cannot collect an additional amou…nt due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on disability and income, in addition to your month Social Security benefit, but this is a different program and is not administered by the SSA. The amount of SSI paid is adjusted monthly based on what the person was able to earn in that month.
Can you receive disability social security and your spouses social security pension
Only if the retirement disability is not from SSA (e.g., workers' comp or a public disability pension). One can receive Social Security disability and disability payments fr…om other source(s) at the same time. See the Related Link below.
Angina is not an impairment that's presumed to be disabling. Therefore, you would need to show that it's not treatable and that its effects make it impossible for you to perfo…rm any work that you would qualify for based on your age, education and experience.
Yes absolutely, my father receives both. Keep in mind that the Government doesn't like giving away money and they WILL send you around in circles for quite some time.
Yes. Social Security is not a mean-tested program, but a form of government-administered pension (the retirement benefits, at least) that you paid into through FICA taxes duri…ng your working years. Unearned income such as pensions, annuities, 401K payouts, interest and dividends, gifts, etc., will not affect your Social Security benefits in any way. If you have not yet reached full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954) but continue working, there are some restrictions on salaries or wages, but once you reach full retirement age, there is no limit on this form of income either.
Yup, you can collect any pension money coming to you without it affecting your social security.
