Concurrent Receipt of Military Retirement and VA Disability Benefits: Budgetary Issues

Concurrent Receipt of Military Retirement and VA Disability Benefits: Budgetary Issues

Date: November 15, 2002
Creator: Belasco, Amy
Description: House and Senate conferees on the FY2003 National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 4546) are currently considering provisions that would lift the longstanding prohibition on concurrent receipt (simultaneous payment) of Department of Defense (DoD) retired pay and Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) disability benefits. The House-passed bill would phase in partial concurrent receipt by providing both retirement and VA benefits for those with disabilities of 60 percent or above by FY2007. The Senate-passed bill provides full concurrent receipt for military retirees with any disability rating in FY2003.
