  • 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

Pension - to SSA for med evid used in disab dec

Question

Has anyone seen this in their E-Benefits status? 

Pension - to SSA for med evid used in disab dec

If you have does it impact my UI claim if I have never filed for SSA?

Currently at 80% hoping to move to 100% with UI.

I just checked my ebenefits status and I get this as well. I have no clue as to what it means. I try to use the VA chat function to see but I can't seem to get an agent. I guess I'll have to call the DAV for an answer.

If the VA knows you are getting SSDI they are supposed to get the records from SSA and consider it in a rating decision.  This can take a long time.  If there is some way you can get the records of a SSDI decision and send it to the VA as evidence that would make it go much faster.  The VA can take months if not years to get something from  SSA.  If you are getting SSDI for your SC condition you should be able to get IU pretty easy.

The difference in criteria between Social Security disability and TDIU is all about being unable to work DUE TO SC disabilities.  With Social Security, the reasons you are disabled does not matter whether its "service connected" or not. 

A successful Social Security disability claim can help you obtain TDIU PROVIDED THAT the disabilities listed are service connected.  

Social Security disability is good evidence that you are unable to work.  Best to check your social security disabality decsion and see which disabilities render you unable to work.

As I recall,  there  are (2) other main differences. VA's consideration of the Vet's ability to do any type of "Sedentary Employment" that would provide Yearly Earned Income above the SGI ($12,400) and SSDI only looks at your ability to do your current or last job, regardless of education and experience.

    • 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.
