Stop the President's Catastrophic budget to eliminate Veteran Unemployablity compensation

Veterans who receive Individual Unemployablity have a 60 to 100 percent disability rating through the VA and are unable to secure a job because of a disability sustained while serving.
The VA 2018 budget proposes to STOP their Individual Unemployability compensation once a Veteran reaches the age of 62 and is eligible for Social Security payments . Veterans who have already reached that age and receive Social Security would be removed immediately from the Individual Unemployablility benefit.
If a Veteran was provided this benefit because of the inability to maintain gainful employment at a young age, he or she would not have paid adequately into Social Security.
Shulkin said the VA was “sensitive to the issue” but needed to cut benefits to establish a savings. This proposal would Catastrophically abandon many Disabled US Military Veterans and a "Grandfather Clause" is needed or eliminate this proposal in the budget.
