    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

100% Disability Question

Question

I am about to get a rating for Menieres disease. It is looking and sounding like it will be 100 percent. My question is can I still work my part time job My employer is good about when i get ick to go home...I was just wondering what the guidelines were as far as me getting 100 percent disability with Menieres disease, compared if I was getting it for the IU version?

Thanks for any help...

Here is what I am looking at:

  • 6205 Meniere’s syndrome (endolymphatic hydrops):
    • Hearing impairment with attacks of vertigo and cerebellar gait occurring more than once weekly, with or without tinnitus: 100
    • Hearing impairment with attacks of vertigo and cerebellar gait occurring from one to four times a month, with or without tinnitus: 60
    • Hearing impairment with vertigo less than once a month, with or without tinnitus: 30

    [*]NOTE: Evaluate Meniere’s syndrome either under these criteria or by separately evaluating vertigo (as a peripheral vestibular disorder), hearing impairment, and tinnitus, whichever method results in a higher overall evaluation. But do not combine an evaluation for hearing impairment, tinnitus, or vertigo with an evaluation under diagnostic code 6205.

If you are 100 % scheduler (not due to a single MH rating) you can work and earn

all the money you want.

If it is 100% P&T the answer would be yes you can work but you can also be reevaluated later. Also if your job does not pay more than about 1000 a month it is not considered substantial which is ok also.

This is an area that you really have to be careful about and when you get the award I would be sure to read it very careful.

Good Luck

I am sorry, but can you break it down farther for me? I am new to this....I do not know what a MH rating is, and if I am a 100% scheduler? This is the only thing I have applied for, if that helps...

What is a 100% P&T?

Mental Health rating...doubtful to work and better not to if 100% is what they are saying. If it is for other disabilities like Bob Dole or John McCain got then you can, even though these guys donated their comp money, did not keep it. Others have posted the parimeters of working/not with the disability ratings.

mienere's is not considered mental health it is an actual physical issue make all the money you want just because it is taking place in your head does not make it mental health but I imagine that type of problem would drive most people nuts I am sorry you have this condition but I am glad you have the docyord that were able to properly diagnose it so many doctors miss or ignore conditions like this (thats just my opinion, I went to a doc in June and because my oxygen level would not get about a steady 84 they put me on oxygen, turned out I was in the middle of a episode of congestive heart failure and my lungs were retaining to much fluid for me to breath, a week later my wife took me to the ER and they admitted me and I spent from 10 June - 28 June in an ICU unit on IV drips before I was able to be stabilized to go home) I asked the doctor what he wanted to do with all this oxygen here at my house since I really don't need it he told me I should keep it and sleep with it at night I think he doesn't want me to return it because they would ask him why I only had it for a month and I spent most of it in a hospital I have seen to many docs ignore medical conditions

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
