If l'm still married and l get disability for myself and l get my husband pension, can l get part of his veteran's disability, we are not together and l live in another state, but legally we are still married

Hi,

I'm sorry, but my only area of expertise is Social Security. I assume that you'd need to contact the Veteran's Administration to get your question answered.

I can tell you that veteran's benefits do not affect Social Security disability benefits, but would count as income against Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments.

Best, Jerry
