I'm a bit daft, and require more information. Or at least, education. Clearly I'm not as up on things as you. So I ask: Is this so very common an occurrence, everyone but me knows of this fraudulent scheme? if so, why no more outrage, naming of names, public demand for bloody restitution?
My military "family" is vast, and yet none of them seem to collect disability, work 12 hrs/day, and are millionaires. I'd be beating down their doors demanding they adopt me, marry me, something!
As a veteran, I would like to go on record: I am not a millionaire. Nor do I qualify for any disability, even though I'm a veteran, and have ailments that would be considered disabling. That does not include my stupidity factor. Although I am a veteran, I am not allowed to check the little veterans' preference box thingys while applying for jobs, because though I've been deployed, I have never been deployed long enough each time, to satisfy the powers-that-be who make that judgment call.
Because they risked their lives to keep us free. Does that not qualify them for lifetime disability? Our former presidents get an annual income for life, and secret service to go along with it. And they do not risk their life our freedom. Working 12 hours a day does not mean you will become a millionaire.
Joanie, my husband gets disabillity fr va because of service connected injuries in vietnam and if he had come home and struck it rich somehow he would still get va disabillity because it is owed to him for risking his life for us. and that he did in a big way. but anyway its not like civil disability I hope this helped. kathy P.S I got good news about my leukemia today i GOOD news
Each year a "means" survey is required from veterans receiving benefits. The amount each Vet pays is settled by the "fee base" standards. More earnings = more co-payment. So no one gets a free ride. We all have paid, and benefited from the service of less than 2% of the U.S. population.
