  • 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

TDIU- Food for thought

Question

I don't believe in a 90% rating and get IU Throwed at a veteran because he can't work due to his  S.C. Disability's & is given the IU & in all due respect the VA should have given the 100%scheduler rating but when that happens we can't blame the veteran  blame the VA...  When a Veteran is  90% disabled there's not much work he can do and in my opinion it depends a lot on the disability its self and the severity & consequences of it.

As for as not working public or a 1099 or W-2  I  could not get a Job with my S.C.disability    therefore not enough paid in to the system for SSDI,   I mowed yards and save Aluminium cans to sell to help make ends meet and help out the spouse. 

I understand what your saying about some that will use the IU System to their benefit and if they could do any work at all they should work,  but Most veterans that recieve IU has  had to fight to get it (WHY?) Because if they can't work b/c of their S.C. Disability at 60%70%80%90% this IU Program was design to help the veteran that did not get a proper rating in the first place (jmo) and should have been given the  100% scheduler .(just my opinion)

I would stand with any veteran to help him not lose  these benefits

I think its wrong for congress or ever come up with this plan in the first place  its just not the right things to do.

I sure hope this is true and not some ploy to discourage IU Veterans from worrying and stressing out  and few months go by or maybe some times in 2018 IU Veterans starts receiving the reduced IU Benefits.

I have not heard anything on this on TV or  the media?

I sure hope and pray they find some other way to get the $$ for other programs.

or just stop giving the IU  But Grandfather it in for the Veterans that already have it  and leave them alone.

I don't believe crap until I hear an official squash and it hasn't passed or was removed from the legislation officially. I am with you on that one Buck.  I also don't trust the damn VA and went from 70-90 IU PT and have items still deferred still doesn't make it right even if I end up at 100% PT for the rest of the IU veterans.........complete bs.  My opinion is and always will be that IU veterans are the most vulnerable veterans of all,  they have the inability to earn other income and the fact that no one seems to be able to verbalize and convey that is beyond common sense.  If they had labeled it something other than unemployable then it would have not been so hard to come after???  absurd really.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
