  • 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

Are These Disabilities A Nexus To 60% For Iu

Question

Fellow vets, hello.

I have diabetes 20%, bilateral neuropathy both hands and legs 10,10,10,10%.

Would these disabilites be regarded as '1' service connected at 60% for consideration of IU?

Awating C&P for PTSD.

Thanks for your input. Vietvet

Hello vietvet:

I believe that your actual rating is 52.7608% which is rounded down to 50% using the VA calculator.

Thank you for your service.

At best your ratings total 53%, which is rounded down to 50%, using the combined ratings table. http://cfr.vlex.com/vid/4-25-combined-ratings-table-19774341 I, personally doubt you could qualify for TDIU based on those disabilities, at present. Sorry! jmo

If you're currently receiving payment at 60%, then you've left something out, such as bilateral factor(s).

The bilateral factor for the neuropathies take him to 55% which rounds to 60%.

The PTSD C & P could possibly put you at or over 70% and the VA will either make a statement as to an enclosed TDIU form (21-8940) with the decision or tell you why they didn't consider you for potential TDIU and then you will have the keys you need to apply for TDIU.

Remember VA decisions hold keys and clues.

Is your PTSD nexus solid and does it comply with the August 2010 new PTSD criteria which is in our PTSD forum?

Berta, thank you.

I am currently working with a new Vet Center in Fl. My nexus is solid and was written by a VA licensed clinical social worker/MAC.

He strongly suggested that I receive TDIU in his report. Also I am currently being prescribed medication for my PTSD.

    • 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.
