  • 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

Tdiu And Voc Rehab

Question

I am currrently a voc rehab student. ( Online) I got SSD about 5 months ago so I applied for TDIU. Could I get TDIU based off of SSD? And could I still do the online schooling? And if not why not, just becuase I may not be able to physically work, my mind works, well somewhat anyway....:blink:

SSD can help but it has to be for the same thing to really be a big help

Vocational Rehabilitation is supposed to prepare you for re-entering the workforce. Once you finish your training, you can work under Social Security's Ticket to Work program for a little while with no danger of losing your SSDI during the Trial Work Period. If you continue to work and lose your SSDI, and then can't work anymore for some reason, you can re-file under an expedited process to regain your SSDI benefits.

I'm not sure if there is an equivalent program for Total Disability Based On Individual Unemployability (TDIU), as by nature, TDIU is awarded to people who cannot work due to their Service-Connected disabilities. I think that TDIU P&T would be incompatible with someone attending Voc Rehab, as it denotes their condition is not expected to improve; whereas TDIU can be temporary, and taken away once a veteran returns to the workforce.

Thanks for the replys. Yes the ssd was all service connected. I talked to them and they said based off of all my service records is how they made the determination.

Thanks willie. I am in the same scenario and had the exact same question. Maybe we could get approved for some school under ILP, go to school part time even if its not for working but to keep our mids sharp, to be social, help with the depression/alone time and be a positive thing in our life.

If you are a young guy or gal I would try and get schooling and collect TDIU if possible with hopes that I may be able to return to work one day. It may not be possible. If I were 23 years old I sure would not be looking forward to being on TDIU for the next 50 years. If I was 50 years old on TDIU I would be trying to get P&T since there is probably nothing out there for you unless you can be self-employed. Age discrimination is real. I got TDIU when I was 51 years old. There was no work out there for me in any sense of the world.

    • 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.
