  • 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

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
