  • 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

100% P&T vs IU?


Just wondering why I would be denied IU for granted 100% p&t with no future appointments needed? Would they deny me IU because it doesn't matter or because 100%pt is greater than IU?

Have no idea how VA makes decisions like that...Personally, I'd prefer the 100% schedular for PTSD than IU.

11C,the legal term is "Moot." The 100% Scheduler Award makes even an "Inferred IU Claim," Moot.

Wolf88, give that a rethink. For a very large number of DAV SC at 80 or 90%, it's almost impossible to move the needle to 100% SC. We're talking in some cases, needing New SC's at  30 - 50%+, just to get to 90%. 50% SC's don't just grow on trees, right.

That's where IU comes in. A Vet that is seriously disabled and meets the Rating Criteria as Well as Earned Income Level (SGI $12,400) under 65, is unable to do even Sedentary Work, can qualify for the 100% Comp Rate.

Like I told my VA therapist today, I don't agree with being considered p&t. I want to return to work in the future.

I don't blame you for wanting to work  if your still a young age, What you might try to do is Tell them you don't want the IU With P&T Request them rate your current S.C. Disability's according to the highest rates by law, if it comes out to 100% then you get paid at the 100%rate without being IU.

But they will probably under rate you to 60%.70%  that's a lot of $$ to give up  but you also take a chance on them rating you 100%

Look up the rating criteria from your disability's and see what you should be rated at?

I'm on the same boat with two C&P awaiting to be scheduled through Veteran Evaluation Services, to see if they can make me 100% scheduler that would make my IU claim moot. They said your 90% and have a lot of claims open, also my claims been expedited again due to not working yet again this time American Airlines stated in a letter I gave to the VA that I am placed of Medical Leave unpaid until I get better. I know I wont be back so I had to resign its been 10 years since my TBI its not going to magically get better overnight which is what they were hoping and the doctor wrote my working on 3rd shift  is worsening my short term memory. He said put to work between 530 am -1130PM anything in between. Of course they denied it, pulled me out of work, stop paying me, forced to pay for medical out of pocket with a pregnant wife, and offered me a job making less then half what I was making. Now I had to go through Obamacare was worried about Trump but he announced he would be keeping the part of not being denied medical insurance if pre existing condition is shown like being pregnant.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...

    • Thanks Berta for your help. I did receive my 100% today for my IU claim on 6/20/2018. It only took 64 days to complete and it is p&t. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
