    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

I had an appointment at Vocational Rehabilitation yesterday for Independent Living Services.  After completing the necessary paperwork I was told that a Counselor would contact me and come out to do a home visit.  I was wondering who has already gone through this process and what your experience was like?  I am 100% disabled Total and Permanent and Unemployable.  I have chronic back issues, chronic migraines, Stage 3 Renal Failure, PTSD, Depression, Carpal Tunnel (both wrists), Sleep Apnea.  What exactly can I expect from this program?  What are my chances on being approved?  I have read that individuals receive adjustable/therapeutic beds, computers, lift chairs, etc...  How long is the program good for?  Any and all information will be helpful.


Thanking everyone in advance

Well, then Mr. Johnson, you want to know about how to win a ILP. I've been involved in how to do that since 2011. Here's everything I know on the subject.




And the library of selections to learn everything you ever wanted to know about ILP requests-and even more.

 Mr Johnson,

I was in the VR&E and ILP back in 2000  and my counselor was very helpful  matter fact he filled out all the paper work and Applications, I got everything I ask for pertaining to my SC Disability's and he even had some great suggestions  ect,,ect,, and I could have got more but I just ask for what I needed to help me live a better way of life , & after they could not find me any type job due to my SC Disability   he wrote me a letter stating I was unfeasible to retain at this time due to my S.C.Disability that letter was a big help getting me TDIU P&T.

I now have 100% P&T Plus SMC-S-1 H.B.


ILP maybe different now? but I think it all depends on what type counselor you get.

After your enrolled with ILP that should qualify you for anything you need to help you live a better way of life.

I suggest you request anything you need to help you and also  help make it easier for your spouse.

you can ask for a booklet that  has the things you can get from ILP that is due to your S.C. Disability, you having a bad Back  a nice electric mobile wheel chair would be good and a carrier also they pay for trailer hitches to be installed  or they use too? things around the house  ramps for your wheel chair, things like making your doors wide, bathroom fixtures, and of course the grab stick and sock -puller uppers  things like that, you can even request a nice walk in bathtub with heater with jet inserts plusation for sore achy muscles.

I'd love to have one of those!

all this to be installed and no cost to you.

Thank you for your service Sir & I wish you the best.

Thanks Buck!  It's been about a month and I haven't heard back from Vocational Rehabilitation since my initial application.   Said they were sending out rep to do homework visit.   How long should all of this process take

    • 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.
