Show proof of the VA benefits with VA payment history or benefits letter stating how much is received. They can be used on the I-864. If they are not enough to meet the 125% requirement, you will need assets or a joint sponsor. They may not even ask for updated financials pertaining to the I-864, but bring all the documentation just in case.

There was a question earlier, about GI benefits, being non-taxable.,.,.I think it is fine to use. For income.

I used workers's compensation, which is non taxable for our K-1, with no problem.

I think they are looking at long term income.,.,.taxable or non-taxable.

Yes, income is income, whether it is taxable or non-taxable. I have seen people incorrectly proclaim that non-taxable income cannot be used for the affidavit of support. Nonsense. There is nothing in the I-864 instructions stating this fallacy. You just need to show proof you receive the amount you state you do on the form.

For example, you may include a recent letter from your employer, showing your employer's address and telephone number, and indicating your annual salary. You may also provide pay stub(s) showing your income for the previous 6 months. If your claimed income includes alimony, child support, dividend or interest income, or income from any other source, you may also include evidence of that income.
