Is it possible to receive VA disability and SS disability?

Posted on February 16, 2016 by Disability Help Group

This question comes up a lot at our company.  You may in fact receive Social Security (SS) Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB or Title 2) and VA disability compensation at the same time.   The same cannot be said for Social Supplemental Income (SSI).  SSI is a welfare program and if you already receive veterans’ disability benefits your SSI benefits will be offset by your VA benefits.
