    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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

Should I Get Someone To Manage My House Are Will It Be Okay If I Do It Myself?

Question

I need your opinion on if I should get a property manager to manage my house. I live in another state. I'm 100% with a follow up schedule in 2019. I have applied for Social Security. I don't want to give them the impression that I can work. Please give me your opinion.

Thanks

I would hire someone, but that's just me. Logic dictates to me that SSA says any kind of employment remember with SSA you are either totally disabled or not disabled. This I would think would also be greatly related to what you are rated for with Veterans Affairs and what you are trying to be rated for by SSA. Also what you may mean by manage if you will travel to do repairs if you will be responsible for scheduling and hiring of contractors for repairs and such.

Mike,

I totally agree with Tbird. Hiring a property manager will relieve you of all the headaches associated with managing property.

I guess you mean a rental home, and I agree. How would you know if the people moved out? There are many reasons to hire a property manager for a home far away, but yours is just one. They usually are not that expensive, but stick with a well known company, after all they will be handling your rent money and deposits.

I used to help a friend with his rental property. He had to evict renters on a monthly basis. They would destroy his property and do all kinds of stuff I would not dream of doing to someone else's property. I think it is a pain to be a landlord even if you live a mile away. If you give the renters a break they take it for weakness and stop paying on time. I remember these tenants who just vanished for two months and did not pay rent. He evicted them legally and we piled their belongings on the curb. They showed up all mad and angry and cussing us. Where were they for two months? After that I knew I would never rent out my property even if I had property to rent. I think if you are a passive rental manager it is ok, but once you start being active then SSD would not like it. It is like the stock market. If someone manages your money and you have income and capital gains no problems. If you were a stock broker yourself .....problem.
