I think I've only been sent this form once or twice in 10 years ... Maybe they are serious about my TDIU P&T status? I don't know if I should send them one if I don't need to? ~Wings

Wings,

Now I'm lost - I thought it had to be submitted every year.

I've always read it was like a must do item.

If it does not have to be submitted every year, then I would let sleeping dogs lay.

I get one every year. I am TDIU. I was an elected official and had earned income. I retired in August of this year so I will still probably continue to get the employment questionnaire. My wages were well below the poverty level but if you have earned income, the VA will keep track of you.

When I fill out the questionnaire I make copies of the W-2 for the previous two years for proof of income and send them registered return reciept, proof of delivery.

I send them one every year and I have been TDIU for ten years. Then I call to make sure they got it. Sending it certified mail is a good idea. I have no earned income but I have taxable income. I wonder if they would send me one if I just waited? Probably not, but then they might declare I did not respond and try to bump me.

According to policy it does have to be filed every year. You can have your county VSO file it automatically for you so you don't have to, but it still needs to be filed. Don't allow them to have a justification for removing you from the tdiu. BUT, i think they're suppose to mail you the form --this is an i think. I know that it is supposed to be filed.

not even worth 2 cents if you ask me, but there it is:D

    • 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.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
