  • 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

Ab8 Letter And Claim

Question

Hi I am new here and have a question...my claim completed 2 days ago. I filed an increase plus I filed temp 100% due to surgery..Have been out with surgery for 3 months now, My AB8 Letter states 100% combined evaluation and so does benefits explorer. Does the temporary 100% show on AB8 letter or just regular monthly disability. I don't know if this is permanent due to increase or my temp disability. I am waiting for my BBE to come in. It completed quickly.

I do know that my C&P doc said they would like to follow up in 6 months to a year to make sure it is better...this was a foot injury with 5 surgeries already to try to make it better

Any info about AB8 letter and benefits explorer would be appreciated

If it shows a 100% it could be Permanent or Temporary, you wont know until you get the BBE. Good luck and keep us up to date.

you can not trust the ebenefits site with accurate information.

In your case I would wait until you receive your rating decision. this will explain your entitlements.

Hello All

I’ve never posted to this site, I have a question. Yesterday I Logged on to ebennies and notice my claim was complete.

Date of Claim

Type of Claim

Date Closed

Updates

Action

12/06/2012

Compensation

01/23/2014

I’m already receiving 30% for my knee. I’m also PDRL.

I filed a claim on Dec 12, 2012. The claim was closed on Jan 23, 2014.

Then I went into access my documents and it said I was awarded 80% combined.

Then I went into benefit letter and it said

This letter certifies that xxxx is receiving service-connected disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The current benefit paid is as follows:

Gross Benefit Amount

$1,525.55

Net Amount Paid

$1,233.48

Effective Date

December 1, 2013

Combined Evaluation

80 percent

I’m lost far as the gross amount and the net amount paid.

I thought VA payments are tax free? Why is there a deduction of $292.07?

I haven't received my brown envelope as of yet.

Thanks …..!

I believe the advice meghp0405 gave above applies to you as well...It's all speculation on our part until you see the paper copy of your claim decision. Hang in there!

    • 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.
