I got sick form cancer back in 2011, dealt with my treatment first and then tried to figure out how I was going to make it since I could not work anymore. So in Jnauary of this year I got around to applying for veterans and social security disability benefits. After a couple of months I got approved for a VA nonservice connected pension and then I just go my social security disability denial. I am going to appeal my social security disability denial of course, but I was talking to the barroom lawyer and she was telling me that if I get the social security disability benefits that my VA benefits will go away. Is this right?? Well I know it is not right but is that correct is what I meant! Also she said I might have to pay back the VA for the benefits I am getting while I wait for SSD - yes?
