  • 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

White House IU petition

Question

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/how-are-vets-supposed-survive-without-iu-if-they-do-not-have-ss-credits-offset-loss

Sign up.

How are Vets supposed to survive without IU if they do not have SS credits to offset the loss?

Veterans get IU because they can not work. If a Veteran is on IU for 10 years, they dont contribute to SS. Without SS contributions, SS payments are the bare minimum for Those who sacrificed. If this plan to deny IU after SS eligibility continues, it is only fair for the Government to contribute to SS for those who qualify for IU. The program should be phased in so not one Veteran is hurt. This is not only fair to Veterans, but to the general public contributing to SS as well. It is not fair to Veterans because the disability was incurred as a result of their service to our nation. For our nation to even consider doing this to any disabled Veteran is a disgrace.

One reason you may be having a ruff start is that this is a proposal in the Presidents budget, which never makes the light of day.  The other issue is that it is from the GAO (government accounting office) which, again is going nowhere.

President Obama's budget got voted down in the Senate like 99 to 1.  Again, going nowhere.

This has to be at least the 6th topic concerning this on this forum in the last two weeks.  Maybe a little over reaction.

Anyway, we wil have to wait for the house budget, as they control all the gov money.  President requests, senate renegotiates and the house approves all monies.  The house controls the purse.

Just sayin,

Hamslice

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • 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.
