  • 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

Question

OK,

Just got the DAV unofficiail letter. I am now rated 60%. 20% bilateral knee 20% bilateral hip and 30% stress anxiety.

It says the TDIU has been deffered as I am in the development status for that. The question here is will TDIU in this case be permanet or not and will this be TDIU Schedular or IU? If I understand correctly even if schedular benefits are same as 100% correct?

Thanks for the info in adbvance guys

You are a little mixed up. TDIU and IU are the same thing. There is no schedular TDIU. There is extra-schedular TDIU where you don't meet required percentage but you are unemployable due to your SC condition. You may run into some trouble since none of your SC'es are 40% or more. Do you have medical evidence that you are unemployable?

Yes have been medically and mentally directed not to work at all due to possible work place violence sent off by a "trigger" I am also on ssdi and retirement from my job inder mental issues. I have letters from my pchycologist stating he feels no work is possible for me. Now ot later. the only differance between the VA and him is thst the VA is calling it stress and anxiety while my Doc calls it PTSD.

From what you posted so far, it looks like John999 is correct in his assessment. Your VA ratings do not show any mental disorders being awarded as yet. SSDI is different in that the cause is not important only the disability.

I am not an authority on this, but do believe you will have to fight for this one unless you can file a claim for PTSD or some other anxiety disorder that can be service connected.

Good Luck!

The stress and anxiety are secondary to my knees so both will be service conected. I am hopeful that due to the documentation, OWCP states I can only work 4 hours a day sitting. Combine it with both the OWCP ref and my DOC saying it is permanet might just give me a leg up on getting IU. Guess I will have to wait and see, but I don't think that because both are sc one secondary and OWCP states gainful employment unlikely and it is permanet and being on SSDI might just be enough to tipthe scales in my favor. '

As for me now I am praying, because the last trigger led me to try to catch the person and rip their heads off. Thank God I leave my pitol at home on certain days.

    • 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.
