Question

Is there anyone here that's receiving ssdi and 100% p/t working? Have anyone even attended school? I received a ticket to work and was wondering if anyone else had participated or tried this.

Jmack,

My husband was on SSDI for four years.

He decided to go for the ticket to work.

Social Security allowed him to earn any amount he wanted.

Of course, he went for the most money.

He received his monthly check from Social Security for 11 months

during his employment.

He chose to go off of SSDI and continue to work.

He did not or does not receive any monies from the VA.

I do not know if this makes any difference or not.

Hope this answers some of your questions.

Betty

It gives you a chance to try working again with no penalty from Social Security. I would not feel to confident that VA would honor it but you could ask them.

I would not even bring that topic up with the VA if you are getting 100% for a mental condition. How can you trust people who reduce vets just because they don't get a TDIU verification letter each year. They reduce first and ask questions later.

Unless you are getting TDIU I don't think they check on your employment. Just never mention employment to the VA. If they were to ask if you are working just do as Nancy Reagon said "Just say NO". If you could work being self-employed who would be the wiser?

The mental condition is 50% of my 100p/t. I am asking about social security, if there is anyone attending school or using their ticket to work. Again I am p/t not tdiu. I hope that I am making sense.

Thanks,

Jmack

My friend, your P&T is not P&T if you show improvement like being able to work. SSDI will give you a chance but the VA may crack down on you if they find out regardless of being P&T. I am P&T for 7 years, but that does not mean the VA won't whack me.

I have had this discussion once before regarding P&T and P&T IU. And I am well aware of what the VA is capable of doing. They ARE the FEDS. I worked before with P&T but had to quit because of my SC disabilities, "my choice" not the concerns of the VA. That is why I applied for, and received ssdi. So my question only concerns the rules of the "ticket to work" from the SSA not the VA. If the VA denies me when I apply for educational benefits I won't lose it, and that my friend is the only thing that I intend on discussing with the Veterans Administration, "ed benefits not returning to work".

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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
