  • 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.

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

    • 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:
