Question

I wonder if I sent in my SS statement showing that I havent worked in 5 years along with all the applications and polite "no openings at this time" responses from employers would it help my TDIU claim?

Wouldn't this tell VA that you are actually looking for work but just have not found a job yet?

What applications and polite "no openings at this time" are you talking about? Are you looking for work or not? Are you on social security and looking for work? What type of social security statement are you talking about?

No!! "No openings" doesn't equate to you being unemployable, period.

Its just that I apply to all these places and they all respond "no positions available" but they still have the "now hiring"signs out and I see new faces so I know that they are hiring, just not hiring me. Walmart,Sears,Office Depot,McDonalds,Taco Bell..they all ask on the application (and its one of the first ten questions) "military affiliations" I click on Veteran..then they ask "are you a disabled veteran" do I have to answer this? It seems that it is not helping me get a job at all..and this is just the application I havent even been asked to an interview.

It seems that you are a little confused, TDIU is for people who can't work due to service connected disabilities not for people who can't find a job. Have you tried Voc Rehab?

Sounds like to Pete and myself that you need to make a appointment with VR&E! They will help you find suitable employment based on your qualifications and your physical abilities!

Go here VR&E @ VA.GOV

It doesn't sound like you are unemployable. Rather you're just not qualified for the jobs you are applying for. This does not equate to IU, keep applying.

Already applied with VR&E found eligible but not feasible for me to obtain and keep employment due to SC disabilities.

Did you make sure that your letter from Voc Rehab was in your C-file and the VA included it in your rating decision that denied you TDIU?

Had the DAV vso walk it in to where ever they make the decisions, still waiting to see what it does for me..

If you have a letter from VR&E stating that you are unemployable, then you WILL win your claim for TDIU! That's what it took for me to get my award, said letter!

Good Luck!

    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?”
     
    Note:

    • 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
