  • 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

IU closed

Question

First time posting here I'm sorry if it's in the wrong forum. Anyways hopefully someone could give me some insight to my question. FYI I'm still waiting on the BBE. So here's my question my unemployability claim has been closed as of 04 Aug 2017 with no signs of change in the VA letters or in the disability section but if I go to start a new claim and get to the disabilities page in that process it has unempoyability on the left side along with my other disabilities I was wondering if that's a good sign or if there is no meaning behind it. I know I know wait for the BBE but like most vets I'm very impatient.

Thank you for your time

No  it means your still waiting for the decison for IU. just hang in ther  or you can call the 1-800 # and ask about your IU Claim   how is it going ect,,ect,,

However if you have other disability's you feel should be Service Connected  you can file a claim or claims for those now  or File for the Intent to File or ITF...This gives you a year to actually file and a 12 months of retro when you win these claims  if you have your probative evidence  then file the claim as a FDC.

sooner the better my friend.

IU being "closed" is a concern.  It wont be the first time that VA "closes" it without a decision.  However, like everyone else, you will have to wait for the BBE to be sure.  IU is sometimes closed if its "moot", that is if you are awarded 100 percent.  None of this means anything until you get the letter.

Hey! srshawn,

When you click on historical claims does it show any letters or notifications sent for your closed claim?

    • 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.
