  • 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

Was recently rated 90 percent


Should I apply TDUI Unemployment? Main ones are 50 percent for feet and 40 percent for frequent urination. On most of ratings said I cant work. How does the TDUI work?

It is paid at the 100% rate of compensation.

When you got the 90% were you employed?

If not did the VA correctly advise you to file for TDIU?

Did they attach the 21-8940 TDIU app form or tell you how to apply on line?

Do you get SSDI and is it solely for your SC conditions?

If so that is superb evidence for TDIU.

I agree this is superb evidence, if the VA said "you cant work".  I think this is error, if the VA says you cant work, but they do not consider you for TDIU.  However, its probably best not to mention this at this time.  Simply apply for tdiu, and if you the effective date is unacceptable then appeal that.  

Remember, the VA does not want you to appeal ONE time.  They almost always leave stuff on the table which you can appeal again and again.  Its job security.  I am on my 4th trip to the BVA, 3 trips to CAVC (one was a writ pro se), and about 14 or 15 RO decisions.  This could/should have taken ONE VARO decision.

Very strange, was there mention of an "Inferred IU Claim" included in your recent 90% Award? A redacted copy of this Award letter would be helpful.

Any chance you could post redacted copies of your  DBQ's? Is there a substantial MH SC involved somewhere?

Your SC's may or may not preclude you from being able to do "Any Type of Sedentary" employment that would provide in excess of the VA SGI $12,400 per yr (under 65 yrs).

Have you had "Earned Income" in excess of $12,400 per (12) month period over the past 12/24/36 months?

Applying on your E-Ben page for IU and also the VA Voc Rehab Dept should be considered. If a VA Voc Rehab Counselor (VRC) agrees that only your SC's preclude you from currently completing a VR Program, the subsequent VR Denial Letter could be the best-Supporting Evidence for an IU Award.

Might wait for my appeals to come back for my Back and Gerd. Might be close to a 100 percent after they come back. Do you think Ill have to do another C@P exam if I apply for TDUI unemployment?Havent worked since I got out in 09.All the exams the doctor put cant work or have troubling working. Ill try to post some of exams later. And they didnt advise me to apply for it.Also they found new things wrong with my feet that date back to 09 using different x-ray angles. Could I try to claim 09 claim date for backpay?

      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

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
