    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

No update employment letters in 4 or more years!


I haven't received a employment verification letter in about 4 years. I am 100% TDUI. All my info filed with the VA (St Pete and the clinic in Pensacola) is up-to-date . Should I be concerned about anything? If so, who should I contact?

From what I have read the RO sends out a form 21-4140 annually for you to fill out.  Some ROs don't.  You may want to check with your VSO or fill one out yourself and send it certified mail just to make sure you do not lose your TDIU.

The VA IU Award anniversary Date mailing of the 21-4140 was re-instituted in 12 or 13. For a number of years, the VA had discontinued the mailing. The VA's decision to stop the mailing, didn't eliminate the Vet's mandated requirement of the yearly filing. A Vet did so, at his own peril.

Inquiring minds might ask, why did the VA stop for a number of years, then start back up? Must be a Fast Letter or VA Directive somewhere, right?

If you were IU and didn't have earned Income reported to the SSA, most Vets had nothing to worry about. If a Vet were IU and had unreported income, still not much to worry about, except a Pissed off X or neighbor turning them in. Signing the 4140, indicating no employment and little or no earned income, while actually having both, could prove hazardous to your Legal Health, think Mail Fraud. Appealing your potential IU Loss would be the least of your problems.

The 4140 takes less than 10 min to complete and you are required to send it in within (30 or 60?) days of your IU Award anniversary date. Employment (uninterrupted) and Earned Income for Past 12 mos, immediately preceding your IU Award Date. Failure to comply with the filing requirement, could result in an Administrative IU Award Reversal. Why chance it?

    • 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.
