VetsFirst Q&A: Can I Receive a Clothing Allowance If I Use a Seated Walker?

Question:

Does having a seated walker qualify me to receive a clothing allowance from VA?

 Answer:

A clothing allowance is available to veterans who have a service-connected disability that requires them to wear a prosthetic or orthopedic device that wears out or tears their clothing. It is also available to veterans who have been prescribed a medication that stains their clothing.

To receive a clothing allowance, you would have the burden of proving how the seated walker tears or wears out your clothing. You can meet with your local VA prosthetics department to show how the seated walker damages your clothing.
