Subject: Exclusion of Veterans' Compensation Benefits from Income Calculations
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation (former HB 980) that will exempt 100% of a veterans’ federal disability compensation or pension from income calculations for any Commonwealth program or benefit.

My proposal will help achieve three important goals. First, the legislation provides a definition for a “veterans’ compensation benefit.” Second, it provides that federal veterans’ compensation or pension benefits will no longer be used to determine a veteran’s eligibility for Commonwealth assistance programs or rebates. Lastly, it will extend the exclusion of the veteran’s compensation benefits to the veteran’s unmarried surviving spouse.

Introduced as HB1774
