How Does a VA Claim Affect My Employability?

Working and Receiving VA Benefits

One of the biggest concerns veterans have who come to us for service connected disability claims is this: How does a VA claim affect my employability? In general, the answer is it does not affect employability. Most veterans are able to receive benefits and still continue working. However, every case is different, and you should consult with an experienced veterans' affairs attorney.

Your Employability and Seeking VA Benefits

The concern of being able to work goes beyond the physical or psychological disability for most veterans. They are also concerned about being allowed to work at all due to seeking or receiving VA benefits. For example, if you have suffered a back injury or a knee injury and seek VA benefits, are you still allowed to work?

In almost all cases, even those in which a veteran received a rating of 100 percent, there is still the option of working. In some cases this may be limited but you are likely going to be able to receive VA benefits and still work.

The one scenario in which you are not allowed to work is if you are deemed "unemployable." You are not allowed to work and still receive VA benefits if you are determined individually unemployable under the Schedule for Ratings Disabilities. Consult with one our experienced attorneys to discuss your specific situation.
