Multiple payments from VA

Published 05/17/2007 05:16 PM   |    Updated 05/08/2017 10:23 AM
If I am already receiving monthly payments or a service-connected disability can I get a VA pension too?

You cannot receive both a VA service-connected compensation and Veterans pension payments at the same time.  However, if you apply for pension and are awarded payments, VA will pay you whichever benefit is the greater amount.
