Yes, Social Security counts as income. The easy way to determine your income is to fill out Schedule I - Income before you fill out Form 103B - Application for Fee Waiver. The amount in line 10 of Schedule I is the income for Form 103B.

    If you are asking the court for a fee waiver, all your income needs to be disclosed. Having represented people with the VA, an income for a VA disability could be as much as $10,000 a month, which is not exactly condemning someone to a life of poverty.

    You are right to be very scrupulous about filling out papers to be filed with the bankruptcy court. MY understanding is that you should list your disability payments (that is, you may not conceal them)-unless the form specifically says you need NOT list them. For many purposes disability payments do not count as income, or are exempt from attachment.
