Veterans' Disability FAQs

Can I work while getting VA disability benefits?

In general, most veterans can still work while getting VA disability.

VA recipients can work

You usually can continue to work while getting VA benefits.

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.
