    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

Question

I have total service connected disabilities rated at 80%, with one condition at 40%, and will be applying for IU.

 

What are the benefits of IU? PX/BX, Commissary, ID card...?

There's an Reg A$$ IU Rating, pays 100% SC Level $$, but could and will probably be reviewed on a C-File Diary Date Basis. An Basic IU Rating is never permanent, unless you've held it for 20yrs.

Then there's the coveted IU T & P No future Exams Scheduled, Award. This is definitely not an automatic Award. If your SCs that got you the IU Award, are "NEVER" expected to improve for the remainder of your life, as determined on a facts found basis (Dr & Med Recs), you get the T & P & possibly the "No Future Exams Scheduled" statement.

Age isn't considered in the basic IU Award but definitely comes into play with the T & P No Future Exams part of the Award. Think about it, medical chances of a DX improving for a Vet 35 is a hell of a lot better than a Vet that's 65+.

Even reg SC awards, are not scheduled for Re-Exam after a Vet is 55. Filing a New Secondary claim would probably require a re-exam but other than the New Claim, Vet shouldn't have to worry about a reduction exam after 55.

A sharp VA Rater would probably schedule a Rating Re-exam at age 53/54.

      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

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
