I don't know either, but I'll play devils advocate.

If you are going to school full time, would you be actively looking for a job or would you only be looking for a job that is compatible with your schooling/schedule???

If I refuse to take a job because it is 2nd or third shift am I unemployable or just don't want that particular job??

I think you should apply. Go ahead, complete your voc rehab training, and get a job if you can. However, if you can not maybe you can get IU.

It hinges on your "ability to maintain substantial gainfull employment due to sc conditions".

Has your doc said you are unemployable? This is key evidence for IU. If your doc says you are employable, then you are unlikely to get IU. And, your doc is not likely to say you are unemployable if you are working.

Since it takes years (dont beleive the VA's rah rah of 120 days) to get IU, you can preserve the effective date by applying while you are seeking voc rehab. However, if you are successful in getting "substantial gainful employment" you wont be eligible for IU. The key is one year. YOu have to be working a full year..not 2 weeks.

Thanks for all ur replies, the doctor was trying to give me that option but I told him I'm doing cheater 31 at this moment, but I have decided to ask for it, but I don't know how to go about it. Since I have a new counselor for ptsd, at the dvc, I don't know if they able to help with this. I can't stand being around people I feel like chokin someone if there's a crowd, I don't think that's normal, but that's how I'm feeling.

Meant to say chapter 31

    • 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.
