This is the form to certify annually for those of you on IU. The VA is notorious for NOT sending these out. If you know you have to certify annually, save this link. Fill out the form, print it out and send it to the VA during your anniversary month when you were awarded IU. Always send everything to the VA by certified mail with a return receipt. Make sure you keep a copy of the completed form.

If you have not been employed during the past 12 months, complete Section II of this form.

Pete, for curiosity, where would that rating decision statement be, on the rating letter? Will it state specifically 'scheduler' or 'tdiu'? Still researching here, but can't seem to find where the manual says no questionairre is needed from 'schedular'. Thanks for all you do here at Hadit! p.s. hopes this question/reconfirmation may help others too!

No, 100% schedular veterans do not have to send in the employment questionnaire only the TDIU veterans does.

If your ratings add up to a combined rating of 95%, VA will round up and you are considered 100% schedular. Also your rating decision should state if you are 100% TDIU or 100% schedular.

Under Instructions: You are receiving compensation at the 100 percent rate based on being unable to secure or follow a substantially gainful occupation as a result of your service-connected disabilities.

http://www.vba.va.go...-4140-1-ARE.PDF

Your rating decision should state your combined rating and the percentage. Also veterans who are awarded 100% P & T will be given the VA form 21-8760 "Additional Information for Veterans With Service-Connected Permanent and Total Disability." It should be on the Notification letter before you get to the Reason for Decision pages

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
