Vetsâ€™ Commission Chair, General Terry Scott wants to study if vets should get VA disability and Social Security disability at the same time, with the aim of reducing benefits. Currently a vet is eligible for both.
Larry Scott notes: The next step in dismantling veteransâ€™ benefits could be a payment reduction, known as an offset, for veterans receiving disability compensation and Social Security.
The Veteransâ€™ Disability Benefits Commission (VDBC) was established by Public Law 108-136 and signed into being by President Bush in November 2003. The VDBCâ€™s charter states they are to study â€œwhether a veteranâ€™s disability or death should be compensatedâ€ and at what level if any.
