where if you make over a certain amount of money a year they yank your benefits/compensation?

A bill or something being proposed?

I know it has been like that for a long time if you are receiving over a certain percentage of disability. Before my dad passed away I remember him having to fight that constantly, at 70% he barely made enough to get by and could make next to nothing in order to keep that amount. When he went to 100% I think the amount became even less that he could make but at least he could get by on just the disability at that point. This was almost ten years ago now so things have probably changed some and I can't remember exact details anymore.

No this is something new they're proposing from what I understand...

Generally, income tests only apply to non service connected disability. Service connected is exempt.

Not a vet, but I did hear something about an increased co-pay for VA treatment or something like that. Am I imagining things though?

That's cool that service connected is exempt. I don't have to worry about them messing with mine then.

I can deal with that... makes enough sense... they won't touch anything I'm getting either.
