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

    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

Temp to perm

Question

He everyone,

 

I have a question, how likely am I to be able to keep my 100% va compensation. I was diagnosed with MDD in 2014 and am receiving 100% temp until my next exam in 2019. I've heard that having a certain rating for five years or more that they can not decrease your rating, or if they do after the exam they can't go lower than my prior rating that was 80%. How accurate is this? 

Thanks in advance.

Rating reductions in brief, aside from reductions involving fraud:
5 years = they cannot reduce unless there is sustained improvement
10 years = SC status is protected for the disability
20 years =  The % is protected

It sounds like you are on the five year plan. In 2019 they will re-eval and determine if your 100% rating will be reduced or if it will be continued (and probably made permanent).

If you become gainfully employed, you likely will be reduced.

If your MH physician states that you are not likely to improve, they might bump you over to permanent.

If you are SSDI, they might bump you over to permanent.

Thank you for the response Vync...I know understand. I am on SSDI so when I come up for my review do I need to show proof that I am getting SSDI. I am not working due to me not being able to deal with different  personalities. I had decided to go to school after the Army but it didn't work out for me. Im so not a people person.

Permanent and Total applies to this as well, being found P&T literally means no Exams and bonus bennies

You're right about bonus benefits with P&T, but it is still possible to have exams. The VA is unlikely to bring back P&T just to do a re-eval, but it could happen.

gladly stand corrected, just rarely rarely rarely heard of it, kind of a kick in the vet's balls to rip him off champ va, take his kids college money, all on a crack pot chance the VA made a "miscalculation" or something of that magnitude. but then again, if said things weren't at least expected, the need for Hadit.com wouldn't be there :P

    • OK so I had pancreatectomy in 2003 due to an impacted goldstone 2/3 of my  Pancreas was removed I am type one diabetes with very large scars continued diarrhea stomach problems Constant back and shoulder pain I recently received a Nexus letter from my  endocrinologist related to my service in the gulf war.  Any suggestions or advice from anyone
    • 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.
