  • 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-Future Review

Question

Just logged into Ebenefits and it states this on my benefit summary letter:

You are not considered to be permanently disabled due to your service-connected disabilities because your case is scheduled for review on: November 01, 2016

and

You are not considered to be permanently disabled due to your service-connected disabilities at this time because you are scheduled for a future reduction in rating on: November 01, 2016

Was rated TDIU on 11/01/2011

Called and was told I would receiving a letter from the DRO explaining it. I advised that I did not receive my yearly review letter from the VA, so I downloaded and printed my own, faxed and mailed it. He said they stopped taking that letter a couple of years ago in most states, first I heard of this.

Anyone else ever get anything similar to this ? Something sounds wrong here to me. Maybe I'm just paranoid and need advice...

You shouldn't worry too much right now. Sounds like the VA is telling you that you are good to go til 2016. Then they will re-examine you to see if your sc'd conditions have improved or gotten worse. Between now and then, if your conditions worsen, file for an increase and P&T.

Johnjjr,

Thanks for your reply. I have not been able to sleep because of this. The 8008271000 number rep would not go into this over the phone because I don't have the letter yet from the DRO. I filed an 1151 against my psychiatrist for highly over medicating me on Xanax for years, causing a severe Grand Mal Seizure disorder back in 2006. The case was dismissed because I refused to give them the names of the staff that got me away from the doctor. It was my word against his, and I felt the people that got me away from him saved my life and was not going to jeopardize their careers for saving me. Then this comes up two days ago and it made me paranoid as hell. My conditions have gotten worse, and I filed for Bi-polar secondary to my PTSD rating three weeks ago. They already have me scheduled at the WSOPC for my C&P exam next Friday. This is a fast track claim, but they have never been this fast on anything.

Keep sending in your employment questionnaire! I would appeal the denial of Chapter 35.

They actually told you that they stopped sending the letters? They are baiting you into not sending it back.

Per VA the only IU have you been working letters are for pensions only. Not VA comp.

I have learned not to trust them and send everything in. The guy I spoke with said each state was different. When I asked why this was not told to me before now, he advised they have 54 different offices and you never know which region your going to get when dialing the 800 number. My yearly letter was sent out last year in October. By November 1, I had still not received it, so I downloaded it , faxed and mailed it myself a month ago. When I called last week they said it could take up to 75 days to scan it in the system. Then I get the guy telling me North Carolina stopped sending the letter. I stopped trusting them long ago and cover my 6 always.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.
