  • 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.

      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
