1) An U.S. citizen married to a Canadian national, receiving both VA 100% disability compensation benefits as well as SS total disability income benefits, wishes to obtain Canadian citizenship via the special "Dual Citizenship" ruling and move to Canada. What impact, if any, would this action have on his VA and SS eligibility?

2)Would he be cut off?

3)The U.S.C. states that when an U.S. citizen employed by, OR voting in, a foreign government (which includes the military) the act is considered to be one of treason. Is it still considered treason when the same U.S. citizen carries out these "acts" while simultaneously holding the valid U.S.-authorized "dual U.S-Canada citizenship" status?

4)Please cite applicable regulations and precedent.

Thank you very much. Sincerely, James
