  • 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 guess I can only see this green print if I'm not on an iPhone?

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.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
