Question

Hi All... I am TDIU P&T and receive SSDI. I want to take some classes in the area of divinity, for my personal knowledge; I have Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits available... I've searched Hadit and other sites for answers but have still been unable to find "direct" answers as to whether or not I can take classes without any headaches.

Not sure what to do, any help is appreciated.

You should be able to take classes w/o any trouble. The ability to successfully attend some classes does not equate into the ability to work 40 hrs a wk.

I don't think your problem will be going to school as much as the fact that the VA will object to paying for it since you are rated TDIU which means you are not employable, and educational benefits are usually meant to learn so the veteran will be able to get a job based on that education, since you will not become employable they will view it as a waste of resources.

Myu ex son in laws father was going to school to become a teacher when he had a heart attack and bypass surgery and was granted TDIU, and they forced him to drop his chapter 31 benefits thru Voc Rehab, he was mad about it, but they told him they weren't paying for it when it would never benefit him.

Good luck maybe in your case they will look at it as a hobby

Thanks for your responses, I just wanted to take some classes for my own edification on biblical history. Perhaps this is not the way to go, I didn't want to lose the benefits I've earned but I don't want to lose any just because I desire to know more on a particular subject.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
