  • 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

Which Is Better Tdiu Or 100% Scheduler?


Im pretty sure i can apply for TDIU however i believe i will have a 100% after filing 5 actual true new claims my thoughts are if i am 100% i can still earn some money off a website i have but if i go for TDIU i will not be able to earn from my website.

Any thoughts or advice to this?

Further am i better to file all 5 claims at once or a couple at a time?

Here is the comparison.

With IU, the VA feels your service connected disability prevents you from working. You will have to answer a yearly questionanaire about your status.

With 100 percent schedular, you can work. The biggest issue is wether or not they decide you are Permanent and Total. You dont have to be 100 percent to be permanent and total, just have a condition that is most likely not to improve.

Re examinations are possible with Iu and 100 percent, P and T means no re exams are to be scheduled, but I and others know better as they re examine P and T folks in some instances.

It is actually better to have 100 percent. The peace of mind is a little better with 100 percent and even better with P and T.

I would file for everything at once including TDIU.

You don't want to assume you'll get 100% and delay filing for TDIU.

Do your research on each ailment and present evidence on it wholeheartedly.

Good luck!

How many people that are truly 100% can work? The only ones I know work for DAV. When I say "work" I mean they draw a paycheck. If I had 100% and was able to work I could never earn my living. I might be able to do something a few hours a day. I would like that, but it won't happen since I am IU. By the time most get 100% they can't work and have a hard time just living.

Just as you are 90% do you think if you were 100% you could still post on Hadit?????? I think so and as stated i have a web site that makes money and if i go TDIU i will loose that income, if i get 100% actual scheduler then i don't loose that income i believe. Just wanted to know which is best, i guess i could transfer ownership to my wife or son if need be.

If you are able to earn income that is reported to IRS and Social Security as Income you will not qualify for TDIU. If you earn less than the Social Security Minimum you can get TDIU but much harder to do in my opinion.

    • 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.
