  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

100percent P&t Vs. Tdiu

Question

I was rated 100 percent temporary schedular for anxiety/depression 2 years ago. after my recent follow-up c&p was rated at 100 percent p&t. Am I done or should I pursue tdiu? When I got 100 percent temporary the decision letter said tdiu is a "moot point". would this also apply for 100 percent p&t? I'm thinking it does.

I was rated 100 percent temporary schedular for anxiety/depression 2 years ago. after my recent follow-up c&p was rated at 100 percent p&t. Am I done or should I pursue tdiu? When I got 100 percent temporary the decision letter said tdiu is a "moot point". would this also apply for 100 percent p&t? I'm thinking it does.

I really want to get this straight, you were rated 100% schedular for anxiety/depression with a re-evaluation in two years. The two years has come and you were re-evaluated and based on your C & P you were granted 100% Schedular P & T. Are you done or should you pursue TDIU? When you got 100% schedular the first time, the rating decision said that TDIU was a moot point. Would this also apply for 100% P & T? I'm thinking it does.

Just keep in mind that 100% is 100% the only thing that would be different is the P & T award. When a veteran is awarded P & T it opens the door for Dependent Education, Champ VA, and Property Tax Exemptions (check your state). I am not sure if you had a dependent in college, or a dependent that was sick and had to go to the hospital that you want to be reimbursed for, it does offer a waiver for insurance but that would not apply. So it would be your call depending on how much money you spent out of pocket for your dependent college or hospital bills, while you were waiting two years to get the P & T award.

If I am off someone else will chime in

Hope This Makes Sense

tdiu is a "moot point".

Out,

Your 100 % SC'd P&T -- IU is a moot point and no longer an issue for consideration.

jmho,

Carlie is right, Forget about IU. Your in a better situation as P and T. You could now work if you are able and want to without fear of reprisal from VA. Iu vets must undergo questions every year about them working and ect. Schedular Vets do not.

With 100% schedular you also have a better shot at A&A or housebound I think.

That's correct: AA, Housebound and SMC (special monthly compensation or "K" awards) are commonly awarded to 100% schedular vets, and not to TDIU vets. ~Wings

    • 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...

    • Thanks Berta for your help. I did receive my 100% today for my IU claim on 6/20/2018. It only took 64 days to complete and it is p&t. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
