  1. Do you have a VSO ? If not. find one. You may be able to get this resolved quicker through a good VSO. Sometimes mistakes are made. I had an issue where they removed my IU by there own mistake. Fortunately it was resolved by VSO talking with rater and getting my IU re-instated within six weeks. It was a CUE and the VA actually opened the claim on my behalf and took care of it. Unfortunately in today's world problems in the system are not realized until someone encounters them. I am pretty sure no one is out to deny you benefits. Thank you for your service and hope this is resolved quickly.
  2. You should notify the VA that you are going to attempt to go back to work with your employer offering modifications to your work environment. The VA will let you work for a year. You would then have the opportunity to see if you can work or not. After the year you will be identified thru the match program and have to explain the income and work environment. At that point the VA would decide if you are in a protected environment. If you attempt to work and do not let them know, you may lose your IU even if you make under the poverty level. Always good to be honest with VA. Good Luck and Thank you for your service!!
  3. Same problem I had with the 9lb Hammer. Since then I only use CBD daily and flower occasionally, seems to help a little. They have the CBD flower in the cups at trulieve, which has very low THC. I only use the flower in the vape cups by breaking them open with pliers. Take a look at this organization for veterans. It looks pretty interesting. Apparently they can test you and then give you a recommendation on what to use for your specific issues. I am going to contact them and see what they say. https://www.vfc.foundation/ Good Luck and Thank you for your Service!!!
  4. 63charlie, I had the same exact thing happen to me on the same 9lb hammer. My BP went to 220/160 and I went to ER. I ended up researching it and found out that Trulieve had used a Sativa plant to make the 9lb hammer which is supposed to be Indica strain. I now refuse to use any concentrates, I only buy the vape cups which contain the actual plant. I was wondering when this happened to you, maybe it was the same batch. They are going to end up with someone having a heart attack and dying if they don't manage their product better. I believe the dispensaries in Florida are only interested in selling recreational mmj. The Indica weed is supposed to be the best for pain, anxiety and medical problems. The Sativa seems better fit for party mode. Yet, they don't produce the Indica strains. For example, Trulieve has 9 Sativa strains and only 1 Indica strain in the vape cups and it is more expensive. Time for me to start growing my own. Thank you for your service, hope you can find some relief.
  5. You do not need to send it in anymore. Apparently they will send one if you are identified via SSA match as having earned income. Thank you for your service!!
  6. Rocky01, you need to write up a letter explaining the income is from LTD and that you are not working and take it to a VSO ASAP. If you only filled out the 4140 with no explanation of the income, they will reduce your IU. Thank you for your service!!
  7. Did your brother attach an explanation of what the earned income was from? It was probably marked as 3rd party sick pay on his W2. He should go to see his VSO and ask for a reconsideration. Apparently they were not doing the income match for quite a few years and finally started doing them again. I believe he probably received a letter requesting an explanation and if he only filled out the 4140 form, then they had no explanation and implemented the reduction. Good Luck and Thank you and your brother for your service!!
