1328. Does veterans training pay count as wages?

Veterans training pay from the Department of Veterans Affairs does not count as wages. Subsistence or dependency allowances paid by the Department of Veterans Affairs to you as a veteran while you are attending school or participating in on-the-job training do not count as wages. Such payments are not for employment.

Any additional payments made by your employer do count as wages if they are paid for employment covered by Social Security.
