  • 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

Reconsideration for P&T

Question

 
I am 100% schedular for my PTSD but I need to get P&T. I understand that the VA believes that I will get better because MH conditions usually improve but mine has not. I went from 10% to 70% to now 100%. It is steadily getting worse. I don't understand why the VA wont give me P&T. I have been getting SSDI solely for PTSD since 2008 when it was rated at 10%. I have recently filed an intent to file asking for reconsideration of P&T along with a 21-4138 and denial letter from vocational rehab. I am also willing to do a C&P in they want one. I was just taken off of a suicide watch list about a week ago due to my extreme suicidal ideation and mental impairment. I also go to therapy weekly with a civilian provider that the VA pays for. I just hate having to jump through hoops for something that has no end in sight. I'm never going to wake up and be cured of this. I am also SMC S1 housebound since 2014.  Was just awarded the 100% and SMC S1 recently (back dated to 2014). Is the Voc Rehab denial considered new and material evidence or do I need more (just got denied voc rehab like 1 day ago)?

I'm not an expert on how to get P&T, but in my opinion, the intent to file was a step in the right direction.

Typically, it requires the doctors determine you are not expected to improve or you carry the 100% rating for 5 or more continuous years (i.e. rating became static). With what you described, it sounds like time for them to make the P&T determination.

Good luck, I hope it works out for you.

I specifically asked to be considered PT, I had been rated at 70% for at least 5 years and when the day I was deemed unable to complete voc. rehab. due to my sc disabilities I was awarded.

Yes, that was my initial reaction.  Sometimes, the veteran needs to ask for it instead of waiting for the VA to make the first move.  I don't know if the original poster actually asked for it or not.  If not, try it.

That is exactly what I am doing. I never wait for the VA to give me anything. I was asking if the voc rehab letter was new and material evidence for the increase to P&T. Seminole I have been 70% for over 5 years according to the back dating and I have been 100% for over 2 years according to award date. Hopefully that will be enough to justify my request for the P&T. Thanks for responding. A little encouragement and advice can go a long way.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
