  • 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?

Question

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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • 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.
