  • 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

I'd file it this Month  (June 2017) be sure and get ya a sign return receipt...keep in a safe place or with your award letter. 

Once a year  veterans on IU are suppose to submit them  its the  Veteran Responsibility. The VA use to send the 21 4140-1 out every year  but seems they slack up.

About 30 to 60 days prior to your yearly IU Award Anniversary Date, you should receive a VA Letter and a copy of the 21-2140. VA Regs require that you complete and file the 2140 within 60 days of your IU Award Date. Failure to File or a Late filing could result in a VA Notice of Intent to Reduce Your IU.

The VA Reg Required the filing of the Yrly 21-2140 stands, regardless of your actually receiving the Yrly Letter & 21-2140 from the VA. Don't take a chance on an IU Reduction back to your CSC Comp Rate or at the very least having to Appeal a Reduction Decision because of the 21-2140 not being filed timely. Send it US Mail Certified Return Receipt.

I believe once you send the 21-4140-1 in your ok, be sure you sign it & your SS# or Claim #  takes about 10 seconds to fill it out  but once you file it  for the year  your safe   especially when you get the return sign receipt back , that means they recieved it.

  so be sure and save the receipt in case they say you never filed it or they never recieved it.

Ok, so if I received my award letter at the end of May this year (2017), then I should file the 4140-1 on May of 2018?
Sorry for the confusion, but I changed the dates initially because I like my ambiguity.

My award letter was sent to me at the very end of May 2017.
It retropaid back to July of 2016.

So if I sent in the 4140-1 next May, I am good to go?

Yes if you get  Award of TDIU 2017   then you need to file the 21-4140-1 Employment Questioner  in 2018...some veterans send it in on or close to their award date  but just as long as you send it in...My Award date is March  So I send mine in sometimes in Jan or Feb or the beginning of the new year.

They check these at random, so just make sure you send yours in each year starting in 2018   if you get the IU Award in 2017.

VA use to send these out but  stopped for some  unknown reason.

So set yourself a reminder on calendar or some place for you to remember it.

    • 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.
