Early Retirees

I’m a retired Veteran collecting VA disability pension and benefits. Are those benefits counted in determining my eligibility for subsidies in the Marketplace?

No. VA disability pension benefits generally are not subject to federal income tax and so are not counted as income in determining eligibility for premium tax credits.

While we have made every effort to provide accurate information in these FAQs, people should contact the health insurance Marketplace or Medicaid agency in their state for guidance on their specific circumstances.
