The Issue: Authorizing military retirees with service connected disabilities rated less than 50% to concurrently receive military retirement pay and VA disability pensions
Immediate Action Required: Contact your Senators and Representative and ask them to support S. 344, introduced by Senators Harry Reid (D-NV), Jon Tester (D-MT) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI); and H.R.533 introduced by Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA) that would authorize military retirees with service connected disabilities rated at less than fifty percent to collect their military retirement pay and VA disability pensions at the same time.
LWS strongly supports S.344 and H.R.533 that would allow retired members with service connected disability ratings of less than 50% to collect military retired pay and VA disability pensions concurrently.
Our disabled retirees deserve the important pay benefit and recognition that this legislation would provide.
