  • 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

Ssdi Under Review, With 100% Va Rating

Recommended Posts

Both SSA and VA have been awarded for the same condition and SSDI has been ongoing for 9 years. Now the case is up for a review. What are the reasons why it would be revoked or is that a remote possibility in the first place?

Your not alone. SSDI is coming after people.

This is what they do. Now just get your doc to write a note stating your conditions have not changed or better yet, even worsened and send it to SSA.

There was a bill introduced in congress to put SSDI disability and VA compensation on the same page. That is that if a Veteran is 100 percent service connected for the same issues they are receiving SSDI for then one must follow the other. Now this bill gets introduced every congress but someone sweeps it under the commitee rug and it is never seen until the next congress takes place. I dont look for it to pass as there is way too much rhetoric and bickering in the ranks of the house and senate.

Wouldnt it be nice, though. To have a security blanket over us and not have to deal with the anxiety of being reviewed.

Social Security has Continuing Disability Reviews (CDRs) and rates recipients based on the likelihood of their improvement. CDRs are scheduled for every one, three, five, or seven years according to how the recipient is rated. However, a CDR may be conducted anytime if Social Security has reason to believe your condition has improved.

If you haven't had a CDR for nine years, it is just that they are backed-up a little (substituted constipated if you will) and have finally sent you the paperwork for your CDR.

They send me to there doctors every 5 years, with the same results every time, still disabled. I think they look for people not to go so then they can drop them.

Ya, it is a touchy thing. I got approved for SSD based off my service connection on the first attempt. I am in the process of trying to get TDIU. We will see, it is always different for everyone. We can just do our part and stay with it...

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
