    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

    • 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.
