Iu 100% P&t, Filling Out The 21 4140

Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans.

This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




I am filling out my 4140 and have a question about how much information to attach to this form. I have been 100% P&T for 12 years and this is the first time that I have ever received this form. I did not know about it. I have not worked until this past year. I worked a total of 13 hrs for the year in Jan, Apr, Jun, and Jul. My total income for this time was 325.00. The reason I worked those hrs was to get out of the house as my world is becoming very small. I don't leave the house for days at a time. My friend owns the business and she allows me this special treatment. I had to be on the payroll for liability purposes. Should I explain all this in a letter along with the 4140 or just fill in the blanks? Sometimes too much info causes problems.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

I would just answer the questions asked--period. Nothing more or less. You were not "gainfully employed" according to the official DOL/VA standard. Chin-up!

First off, if you are TDIU you are not 100%. You're 90%, and TDIU, allowing you to be paid at the 100% rate. That being said, if the 4140 is the income verification form, the VA discontinued requiring that form a year or three ago, so I don't understand why they sent you that form?? I would be truthful, if filling it out, tho. If they ever catch you in a "lie" you could lose every VA benefit, as it would be considered fraud. jmo

You are right I am 90% being paid at the 100% and am P&T as of 2002. Why did I get a 4140 for the first time in all these years if it is not required? I am confused.

Also, I would never lie. That is just asking for trouble and bad karma. If I could go back to work I would in a heartbeat.

Agree with guys above, just make sure and always try to stay ahead of the VA and don't give them any reason to screw or lowball you. Good luck

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
