    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

Question

Question 1. Why is it that I was told, that being 80%physical and 70% Mental, that I do NOT qualify for 100% P/T employable disability???

Question 2. That should I receive IU, that I can NOT own a business, regardless the fact that I will not be managing or participating in the day to day activities to run the business, but my name would be recorded as the owner???

 

NOTE: I am not functional without my med and even still I struggle with my multiple disabilities.

even if you own a business, you are receiving income which probably puts you way over the threshold of $12,400 a year if you are under 65.

So, this is true? I shouldn't do anything to risk benefits? Why, If I don't ever pay myself and doesn't business taxes file separate from personal???

What about the first question? Is that true? As of now it's speculating hypothetically, but what I heard doesn't seem like that would be true, right

also are the rules different between 100% & 100%, in regards to this. Say, I do end up rated 70% Mental; would that make me IU Rated????

Is there a way to protect a 100% rating and attempt to still be accomplished individual or I not try to try to learn how to trade also, because I run the risk of not being protected???

Research time for you.

Take a good long look at IU ratings and the discussions regarding Self-employment, Sheltered employment and Marginal Income based on the Median wage of people doing the same sort of job or employment in the community that you reside in. Check out the DRO Hearing Manual regarding IU Appeal Hearings, very informative.

If you can show that your Business's Net income has substantially been reduced because of your inability to participate due to your SC'd condition, an IU Denial can be avoided. You just need to Dot all the I's.

I used a VA Vocational Rehabilitation Denial Letter as supporting evidence that I couldn't just switch careers and find a "Sedentary" job that my PTSD wouldn't affect.

I don't have it yet, but I want to try to do something to help myself in the future without the stress putting a potential 100% rating at risk. What if my ideas do not work???? I'd have to reapply and this process is horrible for me already. How will I be able to hold my own, if something fails??? :-(

    • 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.
