Hi Jim I am receiving my VA benefits. I am 100 percent Disabled unable to work. While waiting for this decision, I was on Disability SSI which rolled over to social security after i turned 65. Am collecting both now. Do I have to give up one or the other ? They are sending me letters from this outfit wanting to know everything about everything , they have cut my social security check $ 200.00 and the way it looks cut my medical benefits. They want me to go to Social Security to figure this all out. Is that a good idea? thank you, I am worried to Death
I'm not understanding just what's happened? You are allowed to collect both the SSA benefit and the TDIU benefit at the same time...you don't have to give up anything. I don't know who you may be getting letters from but I agree that you need to visit your local SSA office to sort all this out. They're usually pretty helpful, go for it.
