Yes, you can have both VA Compensation and SSD.  My hubby has both.


Be warned though...they are two different entities and do not rely on each other for answers.  If you get one, it still might be a struggle to get the other.

Having said that....

If you want to check into filing with the VA for compensation, go to my website (see my signature) and take a look.  It can get you started on the basics.  Then access Step 6 of the site for Online Research and talk to hadit.com or Veteran Benefits Network people.  Both are veteran run to help veterans.

I thank you for your service and wish you good journey.

Hi gbliz and thank you for your service.  I am both happy and sad to see so many veterans on the site and I want to thank Top for his faith in this site and referring it to other Veterans.

While I do not know much about VA Benefits, we have a few members that do and I will do what I can to help you when it comes to Social Security Benefits.  

Topretired has submitted a fantastic link to a forum that discusses VA Benefits.  That site is http://vets.yuku.com/ .  I am certain they can help if we can't.
