  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Iam getting forgetful in my older age...I had a dispute with a fellow Vet today at my Vet Center...I said send it to The Janesville Claims Intake Center...he says send it to your R.O.

I guess were both correct  but since the enactment of the Claims Intake Center...Everything goes through them and they  send or place the records /correspondence where they need to be.

Either or is good. The main thing is to have Proof of Delivery within the 60 Day Window following your IU Aniversary Date.  A late or failure to file could result in an IU Reduction Review, not good.                     Semper Fi

Thanks Gastone

AS for as sending in the 21-4140-1  I am guilty of sending it in at the last minute, my award anniversary date is Feb ...I Don't always send it in within the 60 days  b/c I do forget  but I send that sucker in some times during the year, last year I sent one in around Sept  and two weeks later they sent me a letter requesting the 21-4140-1  and mention in the letter that failure to send in the 21-4140-1 with in 30 days of this notice will result in reduction in benefit's...now if thats not a threat I don't know what one is.

Anyway I sent in two last year with return receipts.

I send in by paper form  b/c I simply don't trust  via e benefits.

If I recall seems they sent me a letter letting me know I don't need to send in this form anymore...however my grandughter was cleining up my office bedroom and throwed that ''important letter away...I looked for it in my C-FILE AND ITS NOT THERE??

 so I'm screwed to  the wall  now if I don't send in the 21-4140..but I may request the IU BE MOOT now that I have another separate 70% PTSD Rating..I just need to know what # form that is to make the request. R.O. is instructed to do this at the time a seperate award is given to IU Vets. but they fail to do this a lot of times.

even though ON EOB on e benefits it says I have a final degree of 100%rating   it says nothing about the IU BEING MOOT.

If anyone knows this form # please share it it on here   Much appreciated.

    • I was rated at 10% for tinnitus last year by the VA. I went to my private doctor yesterday and I described to him the problems that I have been having with my sense of balance. Any sudden movement of my head or movement while sitting in my desk chair causes me to lose my balance and become nauseous. Also when seeing TV if there are certain scenes,such as movement across or up and down the screen my balance is affected. The doctor said that what is causing the problem is Meniere's Disease. Does any know if this could be secondary to tinnitus and if it would be rated separately from the tinnitus? If I am already rated at 10% for tinnitus and I could filed for Meniere's does any one know what it might be rated at? Thanks for your help. 68mustang

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67. 
    • If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.
