Q92: The VA has determined my disability to be 70%. The Social Security Administration has determined I am disabled, unable to work, and compensates me accordingly. Noted in the information about U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs is: "If a veteran has a service-connected rating of 60% - 90% that causes unemployability, the veteran may be eligible for compensation at 100%." How may I determine whether I am eligible for "compensation at 100%?"

A1: Unfortunately, Social Security has nothing to do with VA Compensation. They use different criteria. Since you are 70%, you may qualify for unemployability, if your 70% condition is the reason you can't work. (AP) 8/4/18
