  • 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

Med. Retire And Va Disability


I do not know which is the best forum to post this question in. I received my paperwork from the Marine Corps today placing me in the PDRL. I was rated at 40% for rheumatoid arthritis. I got out as an E-4 with 5 years of service. I currently receive 60% disability from the VA. How does being being transfered to the PDRL affect me? I have done several Google searches and I have been unable to find anything.

On a seperate but connected note, last year (while on TDRL) I received paperwork from DFAS of retirement pay I supposedly received. I never saw a penny of it in my account. Is that because my VA rating is higher? I apologize for my ignorance, but I have found this disability stuff to be extremely confusing.

Coop, Wish I knew info to pass onto you, but I am sure those familiar with your issues will chime in probably tomorrow. Hang in there and good luck with your searches.

I did search www.vawatchdog.org and found 6 displays for Temp Disability Retired List, and also 27 displays for DFAS, as they write many retirees have been left out of retro by mistake...Go to the search button on this site to read these posts. Couldn't find anything yet on PDRL...seems permanent is not listed here. This site will close in Feb2011 so look it up asap and see if you might get some help.:rolleyes:

Looks like it is for those with 20 or more though.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
