Veteran Affairs Disability
April 8th, 2006 by Questions
I was medically discharged from the military due to major back surgery. I currently receive a 50% pension from 25 years service as well as Long Term Disability benefits from private insurance. I know that these proceeds are factored into my formula for surplus income. Question: Veteran Affairs has awarded me 840 dollars per month tax free for pain and suffering. Does this pension get included in my formula for surplus income as it was awarded for pain and suffering or is it excluded??
