Yes, individuals may have a job while receiving Veterans' disability benefits. However, if the disabled worker has a disability rating of 100%, they are considered unemployable. If one works at this rating they might receive lower monthly disability payments. Also, individuals who work and receive Veterans' disability benefits generally do not receive Social Security disability benefits.

Individuals who are concerned about eligibility, navigating a denial, or unsure about their income limitations can schedule a consult. Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions.
