  • 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

where do i send the VA Form 21-4140

Question

i moved about 10 months ago from the western new york area where i went to the bath and buffalo VAMC system. i am now in the Tennessee valley system with the Nashville VAMC as my overseeing hospital. where do i send my annual IU form to show i have not been working? i have not received a form from them for it and i have as of yet to receive a form for my clothing allowance so i printed them both off and filled them out. i assume the clothing allowance form goes to the physical therapy brace and prosthetic shop but i have no clue who to give the IU form to :)

Ok guys have a question.  We got call back from hot line.  My husband told them they should not put the 270 day limit for appeals, because it is always more than that.  He complained about getting treated in appropriately when you call the va and it is always the same answer.  You just have to wait wait wait. He told them they are just waiting for the older vets to die.  But,  he did ask if he was working,  hubby told him he retired because he was no longer able to work.  He told my husband to file for tdiu.  He does have ihd rated at 60 and his diabetes is 20,  and there are other things like the neuropathy etc.  and hearing. He has the appeal in now for increase in diabetes and for stage 3 diabetic nephropathy.  And our family doctor stated in his dbq that he is unable to work.    But he did not file for tdiu.  If he files now how will it work.   I could not hear what the gentlemen was saying, and hubby is hard of hearing,  but he said, if he filed for it he would start getting it now.   But will they look at what th dr. Stated on the dbq.  I was reading that they treated it like an increase of your other disabilities.    Going to go back and read this all again.

L,  ok your saying you were awarded on dec of 16.  But they back dated it?  May I ask why they back dated it?  I'm thinking about contacting the Vso in D.C. With some of these questions.  I had told my husband he should file for it,  but he just ignores me lol.  Now this guy tells him and he says he wished he had known this.  I'm going to punch him.

    • 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.
