I have an NC Unemployment eligibility question with regards to receiving a Veterans Administation Disabilty check.

In completing the weekly unemployment certification process, I answered all the questions true and correct as one is supposed to do. One of the questions asked if I had received or applied for disability. For the week in question, I had received a disability check from the Veterans Administration for a slight hearing loss that I had suffered while in the service. I receive this check ( an amount less than my weekly unemployment amount) once a month at the beginning of each month. This disability has never prevented me from doing work as I have previously worked with it for over 20 years. This issue came up due to the additional questions that were added to the Unemployment weekly certification process effective 19 Dec 12 as the site advised such would occur. Can you please advise me how this may affect my eligibility? I feel it should not as the disability has never prevented me to work and the income is not reportable per IRS regulations;how ever, if it does, I would hope that it would only be a deduction from that respective week's unemployment payment as the amount is less than I receive per week.

I would appreciate whatever information you can provide me on this matter. Thank you.
