  • 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.

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

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

      Financial contributions are never required, but always appreciated.


      NOT tax deductible, HadIt.com is NOT a non profit and any contribution you make is just a gift and cannot be deducted on your taxes.


      If you prefer to give through a subscription, you may subscribe here the rates are $5 per month or $50 per year and gives you an ad free experience on the forums.



      Thank you for your support!

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
