  • 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

First Question Please help...

Question

Can anyone please tell me if there is a place on ebenedits where it states if i have been approved for tdiu?  My claim is completed and there has been no change in the VA letter or my 80% hasn't changed.  Does this mean that i was denied? Thanks

DocJ,

My last claim, I could not find on eBenifits any information before I got the letter in the mail.  And I used all of the tricks I read about.  Before they listed your disabilities on the site, you could start a (fake) new claim and when going through the process, you could look at your current disabilities and they may have a new listed disability.

The VA letters is pretty fast and the most accurate.

If you went with a lawyer, they might know something more?

My claim 3 rows back, I did find out a day early by looking at my disabilites, but I think it was in the letters by then already.

Maybe someone has found a new way??

FWIW,

Hamslice

Look on e benefits go to ''Disabilitys''  it should have a list of S.C. Disability s of what your S.C. For and where they Occurred & dates service connected.

I have 4 claimed S.C. Disability's and they are listed and where they they occurred while in military Active Duty.

I have two SMC awards but there not listed on the disability's   there listed in another area on ebenfits.

If you get a ED Claim S.C. it won't be listed as a rated claim but S.C. @ 0% BUT IT PAYS 103.57 on top of all your other rated S.C. Disability's.

Just hunt and peck until you find what your looking for.

Go to my letters on ebenefites and generate letters it will either say you are being paid at the 100% rate or not, there may also be an option for checking that you are permanently and totally disabled because of your disabilities (that means that you are PT)  you would also be able to print commissary letter,etc. if you are IU PT.  The easiest way to find out though is to generate your own letter where you get to pick and choose what it includes like percentage of disability, amount you get paid, etc. and THAT will let you know if you got your IU ;)    Best of LUCK!!

Are you the "Doc" Johnson that served at NavSecSta (or nearby Washington DC vicinity) around about between 1970 and 1974?  You played the piano for me and I think you were married to Barb.  Anyway, if that is you, I know you.  If not, sorry.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      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
