    Administration officials are backing away from plans to slash tens of thousands of dollars in unemployment benefits from elderly veterans At issue is a provision in President Donald Trump's $186.5 billion VA budget for fiscal 2018 that would dramatically change eligibility rules for the department's Individual Unemployability program. Unemployment benefits Unemployment benefits are payments made by the state or other authorized bodies to unemployed people. Individual Unemployability Individual Unemployability is a part of VA's disability compensation program that allows VA to pay certain Veterans disability compensation at the 100% rate, even though VA has not rated their service-connected disabilities at the total level. I read all the comments in this discussion. I think mixing the terms unemployment benefits and individual unemployability is the problem. I can't see them as interchangeable. jmo

    So sorry to hear of your bad experience bud. I have had Testicular Surgery, and have Crohns so I know how embarassing those exams can be. Lets just say that we have more in common then I would normally talk about. You do not be ashamed, or scared of what you been thru. You did not ask for this too happen. Did you tell anyone in your unit what happened to you, or have a Buddy Letter? I have had a ton of VA and Civilian Exams, that were uncomfortable or were flight out lied about or wrong. I had a VA Doc state I was a 42 yr old Female Recovering Alcoholic. In fact im 35, Male and never drank or smoked in my life. Took me months to get that out of my VA Medical Records. Just keep fighting, and if your claim is Denied, Reopen New Claim thru Ebenefits, do not Appeal. I dont want to see you sit there for years in the Appeals Process. Good luck and keep us posted. God Bless
