  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Question

I am at 70% and have depression as one of my claims. I wanted to file for IU due to not able to hold employment due to depression as well as IBS. Do I do this on E Benefits?

Consider this, even if your VR is used up, you're still eligible for the VA Independent Living Program which is actually administered by the Voc Rehab Dept using the VRC's as IL Councilors.

Do you have the name and/or Email of your previous VRC? Calling the VR Dept should get you the VRC's email. Email, as opposed to a walk-in or phone call, might be the best way to address your Employment problem.

Gastone thanks yeah i am meeting with my VR Counselor very soon as it is procedure upon graduation from Voc Rehab. My goal is to receive IU not the independent living program but that is an option which I appreciate you pointing out. I am trying to just stay focused on the goal and not get too much going on in my head as it makes my depression worse.

My doctor is very concerned about my MH state at this moment and is very supportive. It will help me to keep her informed about my status and to have her support when I go for my IU. If she assists in wring a letter of my MH state and physical state will this not help me? I am very lucky to have the VA Doctor that I have she is a one of a kind.

If you're actually IU, you need the IL Program benefits, you'll see.
