  • 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

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 a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
