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.
Can disabled veterans VA compensation or his social security disability insurance be divided in divorce?
VA disability compensation should NOT be included in the calculations as income for either spousal and child support. It is completely a separate property asset that is no…t divisible.

You can not receive both even if your dead spouse could
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.
VA disability compensation is not taxable income that you would report on your 1040 income tax return. IF you do not have any other gross worldwide income to be reported on …your 1040 income tax return. None of the social security benefits will be taxable income to you and you would NOT be required to file a federal 1040 income tax return
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.
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.
Alimony is awarded via a legal judgement. Disability is still considered income. You should Contact your attorney and apply for a garnishment of his wages or get a job.
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.
No you don't have to, but if your spouse works it is to your advantage to file jointly. Also, these government pay backs only go to tax payers so I would wait until the countr…y is back on its feet
The broad answer to the question is Yes. However, whether both categories of benefits are payable in a particular situation will depend upon whether the applicant is found to …be "totally disabled" under SSDI guidelines, and how the private disability policy defines disability. A very comprehensive explanation of the Social Security disability process appears on the Social Security website maintained by the Social Security Administration. Much, if not all of the initial application process can be done online, or you can go to a local Social Security Office. It often takes a while to get a determination, so patience is a virtue. The most critical element of the process involves medical documentation of your inability to work. A private disability insurance policy will define that which constitutes disability, and that definition must be met for benefits to be triggered. There are various definitions and the precise wording will dictate your entitlement to benefits (such as, you may be able to collect if you are disabled from doing that line of work that you did at the time of the disabling event, or you may be able to collect only if you are unable to do any sort of work). The long and the short of it is that you may very well be able to collectboth, but the specific answer is fact-driven.
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 will use your medicare to pay for the medical costs of pregnancy. The question is, " can you physically and emotionally care for the baby ?"
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.
