  • 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

Iu C & P Exam

Question

I got a copy of my IU C & P Exam today and the Examineer stated that, Veterans will be unable to function in occupational environment due to his SC, thoracolumbar spine (back). Veterans can't sit down for more than 10 - 15 minutes, can't bend more than 15 degrees and must ambulate with a cane due to pain on the right leg and poor balance. Does it means I am not capable to secure any employment?

Sounds promising to me but it'll be up to the rater. There's enough there to say you're TDIU. jmo

Thank you for the input Philip Rogers.

Hopefully I will have a good rating for my Lumbar Spine, result of the C & P exam is my forward fllexion is 15 degrees with moderate radiculopathy on my right leg. Together with my rating on depression hopefully I can meet the required rating to be considered for IU.

I just got a medical opinion fom the Neusurgeon who is treating my SC and states:

Mr................. Is making slow progress after surgery and will have limits on sitting, standing, bending, stooping with no kneeling, crawling or clmbing to be undertakken. Lifting is also limited. He will have limits for an extended period of time and in all probability be off work for one year from the present.

Will this support the statement of the IU C & P Examineer noted on her report?

I do not think this is enough to warrant a status for IU.

Thanks carlie, I think I don't have to submit this to support my claim for IU. I'll just hope that the report of the IU C&P Examineer will be good enough that states: The veteran will be unable to function in an occupational environment with his SC.

    • 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.
