babyray posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumI am 100% SC with Major Depressive Disorder & I was told that I could not work. Can I work at the new VA Medical Center in New Orleans doing voluntary work. Last week I had an apt with my Pych Doc and he told me I can work. Anybody know if this is true? Please let me know so I want lose my 100% SC. m
Hello, I have been rated service connected 100% Permanent and Total Disabled with a SMC Special Monthly Compensation-S and that I have been found to meet the housebound criteria. I also receive SSDI. The 100% is based on one claim--others follow with an accumulated 165% service connected disablement. Retirement date: Jan 2006 I recently received a Bachelor's degree under the Post 9/11 program. I'm cautiously seeking some extra income as a trial, however, I am confused with all of the information I have sought over the internet to include the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 38 in particular section 4.15. My regional VA Officer said that it shows that I am 100% service connected P&T and that I can make any amount I choose without penalty. Can anyone help unconfuse me on all of this information? and/or Am I risking much too much?
Hey, ya'll. I've had it. First off, I'm going to try and start a business (real estate). I am currently 90% plus TDIU, SSDI, and FERS retirement. Please advise. DO NOT advise me not to do this! I am looking for the procedure to follow. I read about SSD ticket to work program. Does the VA have anything similar? Second, if you pray to Jesus, please pray for me. I have been down and out since 2006, but want to give it a go before throwing in the towel for life. Pray I succeed, and can have meaning to life. It may start out as not substantial employment, but will hopefully one day transition into making a living to support my family. Finally, you may ask why? For a couple reasons. For those of you who will never have the opportunity to work again. For my children (6,2), so they can learn that Daddy has to work for a living. Finally, for me. I must give it one last shot. Again, please don't respond with all the usual, "You worked so hard to get IU, why throw it away." I just want to know if there is a procedure for this, or a ticket to work program. Any sort of grace period? Thank you for your time and prayers.
