Some veterans can receive over $3,400 a month from the Veterans Administration. There are also veterans benefits for dependent children and dependent parents. When some veterans that are granted TDIU veterans benefits, they find they years of missing VA Individual Unemployability back pay. Your effective date determines the date you should have been paid back to. Too often the Veterans Administration does not give the correct effective date and the veterans doesn’t know it. Many veterans find the money owed to them from the Veterans Administration is substantial.
Can I get social security and veterans benefits together?
Veterans can receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration and Veterans Administration at the same time. Each disability benefit has its own rules and regulations.
