  • 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

Voc. Rehab. Questions



I recieved an email out of the blue yesterday from a person contracted by Voc. Rehab. I had taken classes off and on in 2009, and 2010 when they were available at the bases I was assigned to in Iraq and Afghanistan where I work as a contractor. It has been a year since I have taken any classes, I was planning in attending again when I am finished working in Afghanistan in approx. 1 year. I might even be able to take some while here but have not yet. The lady on the phone asked me if I wa s planning on attending classes again I said yes, she asked a few more general questions. Then at the end she asked me if I was recieving any type of prescriptions from VA, I said yes, she then asked what they were. I told her that I thought it was personal and would rather not answer that question. She said that it was no problem and I would hear from her again soon.

I have had an active claim since 2005 for PTSD and Depression. I had a C&P exam in Dec. 2010, the exam seemed to go well. I then recieved a letter stating my claim was denied in April 2011. Then in August 2011, I recieved another letter from BVA stating I should be afforded another C&P exam because the doctor had made an error. I contacted the VA yesterday and they said my appt. should be scheduled within the next 3-4 weeks.

If I begin taking classes would this hurt my chances of being granted benefits for PTSD and Depression? From the way I understand the last letter from BVA it sounds like there is a very good chance I will be granted benefits, but as we all know, nothing is guaranteed.

It also seems strange to me that Voc. Rehab. is contacting me after one year right about the same time I am to go for a Comp. and Pension exam again.

Maybe I am just being too suspicious. Does anyone out there have any advice or comments about this?

Thanks in advance.

Going to school is considered rehab so until it gets you a job it does not count against you but the truth is you can never tell with VA

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
