  • 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

Form Sf 36 Questionnaire And Ssdi

Recommended Posts

I just completed a month of Cardio Rehab after having a heart attack. Surgery and Rehab was at a civilian hospital and thanks to SSDI Medicare covered the bill.

At this final Rehab session I was given a form to fill out (SF 36), a 36 question survey with things like "How far can you walk - one mile, one block?" or "do you have difficulty bending, kneeling or stooping" and "have you felt downhearted and blue?" I hope it was just some kind of exit questionnaire, but I worry that the form could get sent to SS and be used as some kind of disability evaluation. All in all, I think my responses indicate my limited ambulation, physical abilities and mental delema - but I am worried about what the form will be used for. Does anybody know?

Riverman,

Last night, I found a great Web site about SS disability. You might find some helpful information there--particularly, about ambulation. I was pretty surprised about the amount of information I found there that is helpful in any disability claim. Some of it is very clinical, but to me, important to know.

Check out http://www.disabilitydoc.com.

Good luck with your recovery.

Thanks Carrie,

That is a lot of info up there. I guess we all know something about the VA rules/regs/procedures, but when it comes to the SSDI stuff I for one am LOST. Filling out the darn form at the Rehab made me feel uncomfortable and I think I was the only disabled vet they ever layed their eyes on. I detected some resentment about my collecting the benefits and Medicare. Oh well, its too late now - if my head would have been screwed on right I would NOT have filled out the form, or told them I'll mail it in. They are just a hospital, not the law or the Social Security. Thanks again.

Riverman

ps - any info anyone else has would be appreciated.

    • 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.
