Va Pension W/category 5 Va Health Care
Posted 01 March 2010 - 09:57 PM
66 year old Vietnam era vet
Social Security is currently his only other income.
Enrolled as a Category 5 and is receiving a huge amount of VA health care with no co-pays.
He might have opportunity in the future to earn some money. If he does, in fact, earn some money will he lose his Category 5 and be reduced to Category 8?
He realizes his pension will be reduced dollar for dollar by whatever he earns, but he is extremely nervous about losing his access to health care (aren't we all?). If it only means that he will have to pay co-pays, he sees no problem.
I have never dealt with VA pensions and/or VA enrollment, so I have no answers for my friend. I am sure my friends at hadit will.
PS I was shocked to see him get approved for his pension and Category 5 enrollment 23 days after he applied! Is this common?
