  • 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

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
