Do you think a person that is 100 % disabled is able to work ?

If you get 100% schedular for depression I don't see how you can work. Have you read the GAF for 100% for a mental disorder? 100% and voc rehab are incompatible.

If you work the VA will reduce 100%. Most Vets rated 100% are not able to hold a full time job. You need to make up your mind. If you want to work I am sure that if you can convince Voc Rehab they will help you.

It is a little hard to take to accept that when you get 100% that in effect you are taking Medical Retirement. I wish you the best of luck. But like others have said you will not get both.

Are you receiving SS too? You know if you are getting SSDI you can't work either. They have programs where you can attempt to work but that is temp and you can't make too much or you loose that too. If you are well enough or/and young enough to go to school or work why are you rated 100%. This is not a smart azz question, but I am perplexed as to why you are seeking other avenues as employment or such with mentally disabled conditions with the 100% rating? Your log does not indicate a disability rating...did you not put it in or just asking general questions?

ugh, if you get 100% for a SC condition, yes that is schedular. If you get 100% Scedular for PTSD or depression, no you won't be able to work, nor would you be able to complete Voc. Rehab. I think you might be in danger of committing fraud against the gov't. If your capable of doing Voc Rehab, then do it. I was deemed unable to at 39. I have jealous, ex friends who think my life is easy, they don't see the pain of being what it is the description of 100% or even 70% PTSD.

If you can go to school or voc rehab, do it and enjoy your life. i stay in the dungeon with my laptop as my outreach, meanwhile the world passes me by. Sure i try to get out some.... but my family is really losing out here.

Quite frankly, if you can come on this site to ask questions like that, or still have two years of Voc. Rehab left???? I doubt that you are 100% PTSD. Go look at the regs.... I don't think you'll find that you meet the criteria.

  • 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
