    Non-service connected pension + social security

    Asking on behalf of a friend. He is not rated by the VA for any disability, not even a 10% for tinnitus. He was Vietnam-era and for a few years now has received a non-service connected pension of around $1100/month. For the last couple years he has also received regular social security benefits...

    Is a pre-hearing review good, bad, or neutral?

    Any guess on outcome?

    Sorry for bumping my thread, just had a question - would the class action case Sabo v. United States have a bearing on my situation? I know I was not/will not be part of the lawsuit itself but did it establish precedent that discharge for what should have been PTSD is a minimum 50% rating? Thanks.

    Incarceration Adjustment questions

    Update: I received a reply from the Evidence Intake Center saying that based on the new evidence they will not be reducing my benefits because my incarceration did not qualify for reduction. Thank you everyone for your advice and support!

    Incarceration Adjustment questions

    Sorry to mods if this is in the wrong forum. In 2014 I had drug/alcohol issues which fortunately I have been clean and sober from for several years. Unfortunately in June 2014 I was arrested and spent 6 months in county jail. Because my lawyer was fighting for a lesser charge, I ended up...
