Question

I have been accepted into the voc rehab and I am curious on what I can expect for the computer and printer they are going to supply me for the training. All I know is that it's a laptop. Any idea?

Well interesting. I just was told that I should here in the next couple of weeks about my disability claim. It has been less then a year and that is 2 years faster then the last time. It sounds like I will be going for 60% to 80 or 90%. will this possibly stop my voc rehab? I have not done the plan yet, they were ready to but I could not start the school without giving my work notice. I would obviously like to do the school but I am now afraid that they may change their minds about sending me. I know that there is a small possibility that I will hit 100% with bilateral factor added in. it will not be tdui if I get that so I hope that they don’t hold it against me. I still want to be able to work I am only 41 and yes from chest down I hurt like hell but that does not mean I don’t want to give up providing for my family.

If you are not TDIU, in general, you can work. (Even if you happen to have a 100% Statutory rating or beyond.)

There are separate regulations for "mental health", in that a PTSD 100% rating may prevent working, along with some other "gotchas".

Vocational training completion, after all is said and done, according to the regulations, may also reduce a TDIU rating

to that provided by the Schedule, assuming you can then obtain and hold other than "marginal" employment.

Remember that the vocational assessment was based upon you at the time of assessment.

"I could not start the school without giving my work notice"

So you are working now at a substantial job, and due to your disabilities will not be able to continue to do so?

Yes I have been at the same company for almost 9 years but now I have ddd and bulging disks in my lumbar back so I can not do my job anymore. If I get P&T do you think that will change things?

I requested a MacBook Pro with the retina display, I'm typing on it now. If you want a specific PC, or a Mac, I suggest you research exactly what you want and be able to substantiate why it is you want that specific computer.

Otherwise, you'll just get what they throw your way. Like the piece of junk HP printer I got...

I know this is old but thought I would respond just in case some else searches . I was given the option to have the VA send me a laptop and printer or make a request for a specific machine and justify my choice or buy the laptop myself and request reimbursement. I was informed that the limit was 1500 for a laptop and printer so I bought a MacBook Pro 13in with retina display. The VRE just had me email him the receipt waiting for a check now.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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
