  • 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

Question

So if I'm granted IU I can't earn anything other then poverty understood fully. But what happens if I were to be scheduler 100 after I was awarded IU is it an option to try again with working that is? Obviously not my current position since I can no longer do that but maybe some easy job requiring little to no work but still over poverty level?

I was 90%SC IU T & P No future Exams Scheduled since 06/14, effective date 09/12.

Just recently, 12/15 Award bumped to 100% SA Scheduler. As of 01/03/2016 VA E-Ben Comp Page indicated  my New 100% P & T No Future Exams plus the SMC S (1), no mention of my prior 90% IU rating.

This past 05/16, I didn't receive the yearly (Reinstated 12 or 13) VA Income Verification Form, required by all IU VETs to be completed and returned within 60 days of your IU Anniversary Date.

100% SC Scheduler, no earned income limits or yearly 21-2140 Income Verification. All IU Recipients are subject to the VA SGI Cut-off regarding Earned Income ($12,400 under 65, $11,400 over 65). The 21-2140 Income statement is required yearly, by every IU Vet until age 70. Failure to comply with the 21-2140 yearly filing requirements, can lead to a possible loss of the IU rating, and a return to your former Combined SC Rating comp level.

Loss of $14+K IU Comp per yr would definitely hurt your feelings. Even if you don't receive the 21-2140 in the mail, an IU Vet is still required to file it yrly. Why would any IU Vet take the chance of a reduction, the 21-2140 takes about 10min or less to complete.

I didn't know if they wanted to verify how much I made before if I'm  granted IU. Which means nothing since I can't do that type of work now and even their doctor said my cognitive impairment I shouldn't be risking lives of other people. I was just curious say I took a year of IU and then I was granted my other claims within the year putting me at 100% PT would I be able to try and work again? I'm only 30 and am struggling with the thought of never again but then again I know I shouldn't be doing what

I am doing with work wise. But thinking my residuals will get better was over 4 years after my coma and now 10 years later it is what it is. I just hope I don't have to waste or stress anymore time in my life with this claim it's blanked out my last 6 years of clouding my head. It's nothing I can do to explain to my wife she knows it drives me crazy. If anyone else has ever survived a coma would know exactly how and why I cant let things go until it's finished or I'll forget.

Been  41/2 yrs since I completed the IU Claim, think they wanted Earned Income Info, Current for past 12 mos and back a number of years, as well as current and past employers.

Is your current employer making accommodations for your SC problem? That income could be viewed as Sheltered Income.

Do you have an IU Claim Pending?

When I applied for accomadation they put me on medical unpaid leave of absence until I resigned which is why I applied for IU also it's pending decison approval so wish me luck I've spent about five months off in a 2 years period because of my disability

    • 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...
