I know we cannot work and earn income being disabled but what if we want to get a loan or get your own money to start a vendor business like a snack machine that makes it own money, I do not have to go to work but like the machine work for me. I know some may say put it somebodyelse name,,,, or short cuts to get by and pass the laws. I want it straight from the hip, the honest way. I just want to get vendor machines apply for my papers to get it started. my question is, The legal way for a T&P veteran to own a vending business legally and if so how.

Brother you can shape it any way you want it's still a form of "employment" if you were 100% scheduler different story but PT means you are unable to hold any type of employment be it counting your money to do the books to telling employee's there daily duties.. just my 2 cents..Yog

If you are 100% schedular, you can make all the money you want. If you are 100% for a mental disorder, like PTSD, though, you would not be mentally able to do any kind of work. If that is the case the VA finds out you are working you can expect to be reduced. If you are TDIU you can make up to the poverty line, which is something like 13K. If you report any income while on TDIU, though, you can look for it to go away.

In November, 2008 you posted that you were 80% with TDIU. Are you now schedular 100%? Or are you TDIU with P&T? I may of misread your profile, this evening. I thought it read 80%, however, now it reads T&P. I'm going in for a PET scan tomorrow, and am distracted today. I don't want to give you any wrong information. Best wishes mr c-rock, and again congratulations on your win.

Thanks for the replies VETs, I do not know what to call myself now. I was 80% TDIU and was awarded P&T or T&P in Dec 09 with no future exams. I am 70% PTSD and 20% for messed up back and neck. Just had another disc removed from neck in Nov 09. I do not know what I am.....

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
