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!

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
