  • 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

The VA still has not placed your POA throughout the system. I will try again on Monday to fix that. I saw your appeal is completed and they granted 2 items. Migraines and individual unemployability. I don't know what percentage for the migraines nor the dates. They did not give us a copy since our POA was not in the system. I will work on this Monday. I have a copy of the POA and will get it in the system.

Have a great holiday and you will get your letter probably next week.

I received this from my DAV rep. I called to check on it and the VA said decision was made, its pending authorization. What does this mean? How long does it usually take?

Should be pretty soon. The amount off retro can slow down an award if it requires extra signatures.

Good Luck

I dont know about the retro, I filed for TDIU in Aug 08 got denied May09 filed NOD May09, how far will they go back? To the original file date or the NOD date?

They'll go back to your original claim date. If that was Aug. 08, then they will owe you for 27 months retro-active pay. Now this is according to what the difference between what the TDIU payment should have been, minus the amount that you have been paid if you have been receiving any disability compensation during this 27 months. If not, if this is your first compensation award, then they will owe you (according to how many dependents you have listed) approximately 27 X $2,600.00 or about $70K, and, if this is so, then it will take a little extra time to get all three signatures okaying this disbursment.

NOW, listen up!

There are several additional benefits BESIDES the $2.5K a month that you need to be aware of, i.e., Chap. 35 bennys, free life insurance, etc., AND, according to which state you live in, various and differing state-supplied benefits (property tax reductions/elimination, vehicle tax/tag elimination, hunting/fishing licenses, state park admission, yada, yada, yada. And, don't forget, if this is your first award or the first time you have passed the "no co-pay" threshold, the elimination of your co-pays at the VAMC AND the refund of all your co-pays back to Aug. 2008.

BTW, congratulations!

    • 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.
