  • 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

IU

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

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
