Hi tjhay,

My husband has a military related disability so we were eligible for VA benefits but he also applied for Social Security disability because he can no longer work. You can apply right on line. You could also check out eligibility for SSI benefits. Good luck. Sheila

Have you tried the Veterans Service Commision? Or how about the DAV? These aren't LONG term help but they can also serve as advocates.
