Your BF should contact the Manila VARO directly to inquire about Voc rehab and his pension. There are too many variables.  Although it's the VA, they have different rules than the VA in the states.

For work. He should do the research on his own so he can  see it's virtually impossible unless he meets the strict Philippine Visa/Work permit requirements. Google can a foreigner/alien work in the Philippines.

I have to smile when Filipinas contact other expats to ask if their boyfriend's pension will run out or how much it will be. :whistling:  We get to know their priorities that way.

wow. that came out wrong. i meant to ask if his fisabiloty will run out or if there are conditions there. and yes there are. dont you generalize filipinas that were milking you americans. the 4 years weve been together , never have i asked for money or he has given me any. i have a nice stable job working at a bank. so no im not a dependa. i was just asking for stipulations of his disability income. not all americans are financially well off so dont think that all filipinas are just using you as atms.

if its any worth, i was the one helping him through some sticky situations in the past. so thank you very much for judging.
