  • 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

Ssa And Va On Td

Question

I'm rated 80% SC and have been getting SCD dated from Feb. 08. In 07 I was turned down by the VA for TDIU because of something I was suppose to have said. Some where I was suppose to have told someone I was working. I sure don't remember saying anything like that to anybody, since I have not been working from 05 to present. Any how, SCD was awarded me with the primary reason of a non-service connected problem. Secondary was the listing of all my service connected injury's. My question is how am I suppose to work, VA says I can, when the SC say's I'm disabled and unable to work? If I work, I lose SC. I filed a nod last year and have not heard a world from the VA. Anyone else with this problem and time frame for the VA to answer a NOD. Any suggestions to get these moving or give me another turn down. None of my service ratings are rated more then 30%, but the total to date is 80%. I am going to file another claim for ID because of all the drugs they have given me. Reading from these forums, I would guess I will be given another 10% increase which should move me to 90%. Thanks all for your answers.

Please reread your post and post it again with the correct abbreviations. I can't make heads or tails of what you're asking. SCD? SC? ID? Another 10% added to 80% will probably keep you at 80%.

Do you have a letter from a medical professional stating that you can't work?

Have you gone to VocRehab and had them make such a statement?

Those are a couple of good places to start.

Sorry, SC= service connected, SCD= social security disability, ID=erectile dysfunction.

My primary VA care doctor wrote a letter stating just that. Only he also put my other disability, (back) in the letter also. Of course they read it as being my only disability, instead of all my service connected problems listed also. I'll check into the VocRehab. Looks to me as the VA is putting all the problem on the back. Sure the back surgery was a big problem, it along with all my other problems, (gun shot wounds, PTSD, etc). The total of all my problems is what caused me to get out of my own business. I tried and just could not do what needed to be done and had to retire. I sure didn't want to do that, it just comes a time when you need to call it quits.

    • 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.
