Hello,

So sorry to hear of your dilemna. I will strive to provide you with legal information to assist you. If my answer is not clear to you, I encourage you to ask me for clarification by using the reply button.

Unfortunately your VA service-connected disability pay would count for the bankruptcy means test.The bankruptcy means test does not apply to:
1. Members of the National Guard Member or Armed Forces Reserve on active duty and 540 days thereafter; and
2. Disabled veterans that incurred debt while on active duty or while serving in homeland defense activities.
