I have a TDIU P&T rating, I am 53 and when i turn 55 i can start receiving a small teamster pension of $900 a month. My question can i lose my TDIU if i am collecting a pension?


Jim's Reply:

No, you will not lose VA TDIU benefits for receiving a Teamster pension. A pension is not gainful employment and gainful employment is your only restriction. You can win the Lotto, strike gold in your back yard or inherit a fortune from your poor old aunt Gertrude and none of that will affect your benefits. If you return to work, then you may have an issue. Good luck!
