  • 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

Just wanted to let everyone know (for those that did't) if your 20% that qualify you for the ILP (Independent Living Program)

I never knew that, but as Alex (asknod) Pointed out in the show  its 20%  and the more worse your disability is the more you can qualify or higher rating but I think they look at the severity of veterans disability's (as for as the cost)

I think you can get your Auto Registration tags at 30% which I never knew that either.

Also travel pay at 30%  not sure on the co-pay  I think they take that out of your travel pay.

The I.L.P. is for veterans that need to get out and keep busy do something with their lives  and not just winder away  or be stuck inside gaining weight and not really enjoying their life.

   The I.L.P. can give you another chance at life...you must Apply for it and let them know what you want , if its something for your home  to be built or any type machinery that you need a hobby for , or that will make your life better, Alex wants a Greenhouse to grow veggies and such  this is a outside hobby for him its what he loves to do, you may love wood shop/wood working/carpentry,painting, or things that would help you around the house as a hobby, use to a Veteran could get a Riding Lawn mower  but seems the VA is cracking down on that one but you never know if you don't apply.

I don't know what all they offer & sometimes I think if a veteran comes up with something he/she wants/needs for a hobby  let the  VA  I.LP. know!

Hey if we start to take better care of our selfs Keeping Busy we could live to be over a 100 years old and besides why not make things a little easier/better for us along the way with the VA's ILP.

So check out your benefits starting at 10% , I use to think we all had to be 100% to be able to get any kind of benefits but that's not true.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
