Unemployability

Question

I do not understand fully what is going on with the IU situation. Is it true that if I am 80% P/T IU that I may lose my IU benifits when I turn 65?

Thanks in advance for any insite on this issue...Liz

At the present time, that is not true. However, it is one subject for discussion amongst the fat-cat politicians who are looking for more ways to take from the poor to give to the rich.

Sort of "Anti-Robin Hood".

Thank you for easing my anxiety...for the moment..Gosh..so many Vets would be in a real bind..myself included... if such a thing should come about. I would have to go and find a husband to supliment my lower rating :) ...kidding aside...I would be in a real mess.

Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends.

Last month it was posted on hadit here that the disablity commisson was not going to change severl pratices of the VA in disablity law. I think one was disablitys and genetics, and the IU. Im ot sure but you can look in the past and find out what the commission is not going to deal with.

When that was announced the VA shortly announced its interest in taking IU vets and re hablitate them back into the work force.

Now that is not all bad but I know the effort will not be genuine but one of merly saving money at the expence of disabled veteran. However it would be a massive program they would have to set up to put millions of vets back into the work force and not have headlines in the news papers about the vets who could not fit into the placements they were forced into.

Don't worry it will probably stay the same.

VA Voc rehab is a joke. I have a friend who finally got service connected but since he was working for $9 bucks an hour the Voc Rehab counlser turned him down.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
