Veterans' Disability FAQs
Can I work while getting VA disability benefits?
In general, most veterans can still work while getting VA disability.
There are a couple of important points:
In order to receive TDIU benefits (Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability) you can minimally work. But you cannot earn over a certain amount. This is essentially below the poverty level.
A 100% schedular rating for certain conditions may also preclude you from working and earning substantial wages.
