I am getting VA DIC as a widow. If I apply for Social Security from my own Social Security account, will it be offset by the DIC?

Hi. Just to confirm - are you referring to Social Security Retirement income? Thank you.

Hi. I just confirmed that it is the Social Security Retirement Income.

To answer your question - it should do not have an effect on your social security retirement benefits, if you are applying on your own Social Security account. Social Security has a "work" earnings limit.
