  • 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

Tdiu Denied.


My claim went from Gathering of Evidence last Friday to Preparation for Notification today.

Called my VSO and was told my claim was denied.

They gave me 10% additional for depression which doesn't change my rate and seems really low since I'm taking 200 mg of Zoloft per day to combat the depression.

Also they granted SMC K.

I'll have to wait for the official word to see why I was denied but I've got a feeling it's due to the incomplete and fraudulent C&P exam for my lower back.

The doctor did not complete the exam yet she fully filled out the DBQ as if she had.

40% for lumbar DDD

20% for each leg for radiculopathy

10% GERD

10% tinnitus.

While denying my TDIU they also granted me a whopping 10% for depression.

Yes it's the first denial.

My SSDI claim was approved in less than three weeks using nothing more than my VA medical records.

you'll be fine.. just put in a notice of disagreement and let the Bva decide on it.. Your depression and Gerd is a low rating. Also, If you have a loss of range of motion for your legs that should be another rating.

Congrats on the SSDI win.. That will help as well.

Good luck

Received the official denial today.

Here's what they had to say about the TDIU.

Entitlement to individual unemployability is denied because the claimant has not been found unable to secure or follow a substantially gainful occupation as a result of service connected disabilities.
Although your records from the Social Security Administration (SSA) indicate that you are currently receiving social security disability for your back and other osteoarthritic conditions, the SSA records note your disabilities are subject to reevaluation and as such are not permanent in nature. Based on the evidence received from your VA examinations, the examiner opined that you are capable of sustaining and gaining employment in a sedentary environment that does not involve lifting, squatting, bending or frequent twisting motions.

That incomplete and fraudulent C&P exam is what's causing the problem. Also SSDI wants to reexamine me in SEVEN years. I was under the impression that all SSDI recipients are on some sort of reexamination schedule.

    • 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.
