i already have an under grad degree from voc rehab but i still have about 2 years left on the clock

i am waiting for my new rating decision of schedular 100%

then i am am going to re-file back into voc-rehab and make them pay for a masters degree in criminal justice

so i can go back to work dav tells me even if i have mental rating as long as you get 100% percent schedular you can go back to work and re-apply for voc re-hab

what do you think about this????

thats what the dav tells me i can do in accordance with the regs so thats what i'm working on right now. I wanted to see if other vets have same sort of exepriences.

One question for you, where are you going to work in criminal justice system with a 100% mental disability? Let me know so I can go back to work also.

I was just thinking the same thing. They do back ground checks, and it would be a liability issue for them to do this I believe.

Criminal Justice and mental disorders are a no go. If you are in the system and run into periods of depression due to things such as a line of duty incident or from physicals disabilities then you will be provided treatment from the resident phyc doc within the department that you are employed with. You will be maintained on duty as long as you comply with the doctors orders and he provides that you mental problem does not affect your judgement or reliability.

However, new hires will not be accepted. Also with the level of disability your posts have indicated you are a no go even if your were currently employeed in the system. This is simply a statement of fact as I interpert the rules and I hope you do not take it the wrong way. However, you need to speak with a prospective employer and if necessary seek legal advice from an attorney for I surely ain't one.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
