If I'm granted say 3 months of 100% convalescence pay does that preclude me from working any job? Can I work part time in a job other than my original one? Also, if I return to work earlier than planned do I need to do anything like notify the VA?
Back in August 2020, my HLR asking for earlier effective dates for several disabilities were granted. Some of these effective dates went all the way back to 2010, so I got a nice chunk of retroactive pay. I had back surgery in 2014, a left ankle surgery in 2015, and a revision surgery in 2016 from the left ankle surgery. Since I was not service connected for any of these disabilities at the time of the surgeries, I did not claim temporary 100%. They all ended up in the appeals process and were finally granted with effective dates well before the surgeries. I just submitted new claims for temporary 100% for all 3 of these surgeries on December 15, 2020, and I see that the VA has already ordered exams. There are plenty of recent exams that they could go on from March 2020 when I had exams for these so they could be rated. I was just wondering if anyone had done this before. I would probably get a couple thousand dollars if all 3 are approved. That first left foot surgery was a long recover with a cast and a boot for several months.
I am SC 50% for PTSD. I applied in White City for temp 100% and they said no because "SORCC offers no hospital services. It is an IOP (intensive outpatient program) and is open to veterans in the area, not just those living at the Dom. There is no restriction on work. This is a rehab center. They do not have inpatient hospital services." I want to go to a PTSD program but want to get the temp 100% I am entitled to. I am considering Roseburg or Menlo Park. But I know they change the name of things so it is not "hospital services," and I have never been able to find a definition of that. I see an article that boasts they have a "home-like residential facility," but it also refers to it being an "inpatient program." So I'm wondering about that. I know they're trying to turn everything into outpatient. I am in a vulnerable position and really need my temp 100%. Any information from my veteran brothers and sisters would be greatly appreciated.
