  • 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

Program graduate

Question

If I graduate from a Voc program I know I'll lose my TDIU? But will I just go back to 90% since its work that isn't strenuous to my TBI residuals? I spend 6 years getting TDIU and now I realize I might not be able to survive on the income alone it could just be my anxiety but I don't want to put my family out of our home so I have to push myself to do something .

Thanks Buck....I just give up on many questions here that start to jump from one topic to another.

I hope this is mentioned for all the newbees in the links they need to read before they post.

Also I am seeing here something of great concern.

It often takes me a few minutes to reply to some stuff,on line here ,  but that means I might have spent an hour or more re-reading the info here in the thread, assessing it, looking for appropriate links to help, etc etc....and then preparing my response in Word before posting it here....based on the whole thread.

Sometimes a thread will have lots of continuous info and replies but sometimes it is quite evident to me that advice is being given by some here , without even reading the whole thread.

They could probably get hired as a VA rater. The VA is good at breezing through and ignoring our stuff, in order to deny.

We owe the vets here much more than that.

Then again some here (recently this was the case) will repeat their problem with VA endlessly and never take our advice.Someone posted multiple copies of C & Ps they had in 2 different posts, and I still could not

and will not change my advice. The decision they got from VA is correct. They can NOD it but I don't know what argument they could even raise in the NOD.

Sorry I get anxious and I post all over repeatedly sometimes I'll refrain the best I can and then I get scatter brained repeat stuff even as I am responding I proof read and end up deleting half the message since I said the same information in the prior post I apologize and will be better at making sure I stay on topic.

I can empathize with jfrei, in that someone may say one thing and the original post does not attract any other attention. So when you think of another angle or see something else posted, you see another opportunity to ask a slightly different question that may incite more informative responses.

When someone answers, I usually politely thank them; and then the thread dies. I have NEVER started a thread that lasted more than a couple of posts. So I either tag onto to someone else's post or just read. I thought his question was a good one, and I don't know where or what his original post was (and 99% of most (different) posters probably don't either). So now I don't even have a bucket to poot in, a link, or anything to guide me. I just read posts condemning jfrei, "Bad Jfrei, Bad Jfrei." With all the disjoint threads going on, I think most people read what interests them. And it's hard to find something I can understand and that is also pertinent to me. I can understand your situations though, but it was a complete waste of my time and limited attention. I'm sorry.

    • 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.
