Hiring Benefits For 30% + Dav

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all for this great forum,

I have a SCD (30 Yrs.), will soon have total knee replacement surgery..... Am wondering what I can do afterwards as far as preferential treatment towards employment with the Fed G'ment or State G'ment or any additional help that I may be entitled to..Do any private nationwide companies, etc., offer preferential hiring for 30% + Disabled Veterans... I am 52 yrs old. I need help!!! I know that after the surgery I'll be entitled to 30 to 60% disabilty from the VA, but I still need something or I'll lose my house, which is not great and I'm upside down on... The job I now work is not going to wait on me to recuperate and get up to full or even half speed..............

Thank You So Much,

Shillnav - Steve

Most govt agencies won't even touch you until you have recuperated from whatever surgery you are having done I spent 2 decades at the Postal Service and they were even getting rough on SC vets when I left in 2000 good luck but most companies don't offer 10 point veterans any preference except state and federal jobs

The Fed Lists all Job Openings at USAJobs.gov. You can put resumes, fill out apps, leave on file for positions of interest for all agencies and they will contact you when there is an announcement made. Avet gets a 5 point preference and a disabled vet 10 points. Find the Code Ex: 510 Auditor, Location TX, look for open announcements you qualify for if any. If not look at requirements and leave interest for them to call you when opening comes up.

But Fed jobs are becoming far and few due to all these budget problems. Anotheer month or so IRS will be hiring Temps for coming filing season. Period of training, then processing, and preparing, filing reurns for 6 months to 9 months.

As far as disability Fed has I believe has Law and hires handicapped and alters office locations to accomidate disabled. So do some very major Nat'l companies. Saw just last week some announcements forget where I have amnesia but retired 27 yrs IRS 100%.

Check with your VAMC on the job issue.........also you will get 100% for several months due to the knee replacement.

You could also look into Voc Rehab.

If the knee is service connected you will get 100% for 12 months. Unless there are problems afterwards your rating will be 30%. I had my first of three total replacements in 1998 and just got bumped up to 60%. The service connected knee has been operated on nine times. I said all that to say this. Before you leave the hospital try and get a copy of the Dr's procedure with dates and etc. That should be all you would need in filing for convelesant.

The faster you file the quicker the money comes. Good Luck!

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
