Can a veteran work while receiving VA disability?

A veteran generally can still work when receiving VA disability. However, typically in order to receive individual unemployability or a 100 percent schedular rating for certain disabilities, a veteran cannot work full time or make over a certain amount of money per year (generally anything above the poverty line). This depends on each individual case and if you have questions about a claim for unemployability, or if you are not able to work due to a disability incurred in service.
