  • 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

Getting Eduational Program Approved


Question

The VA does approve non-accredited programs. However, these approvals happen at the state level through something called a "State Approving Authority". My son is going to Calvary Chapel Bible College in the fall. They're currently not approved, but are willing to pursue it (they thought they had to be accredited). I was wondering how long it takes for a school to get approved.

I realize it may vary from state to state, so I'm looking for a ballpark. Has anyone done GI Bill or Chap 32 through a school that had to be approved before you could start with VA benefits?

Interesting- VA usually does not approve some religious schools. However I was interested in using Chapter 35 again (under my AO IHD award) and contacted Liberty University recently  ( I am a Bible student) and they were thrilled that I had Chapter 35 and were familar with it and wanted me to enroll right away.

Most schools, at their web site, should  have info on whether they are VA approved or not or you could contact their financial aid office.

Some schools (like bartending school) obviously are not VA approved. Also I thought I could finish college credits for my pilot's license under Chap 35 but they would not approve that.

The degree I have is from AMU (American Military University).I was their first civilian graduate and they are VA approved.( and VA did approve my Chapter 35 to pay for the tuition.)

I have never heard of any ' State Approving Authority.'

Calvary University ( separate from Calvary Bible college)  is  definitely VA approved:

This is an easy (but a bit old) version of the M28 that is the guidebook for VR&E the VA administers. It references the CFR as well, so you can double check info and assess what they should do if you apply.

I found info on Ch35 on page 1212 for elig. and entitlement/administration of the program. this is a huge PDF.

      So I started my "Fully Developed Claim" 02/08/2019 had my VA Comp and Pen Exam 03/18/2019 . My original completion date was 08/05/2019. Then after my Exam 05/03/2019.
      This is my story I've injured both knees, both feet and back while serving In the Army in 2017. progressively my back gave out on me. Now I'm young 25 years, can't work and didn't know about my options until just recently. Lucky for me I was within my year of separation so I got a VSO to work with me and my claim. Still waiting if it's an approval or denial, however today Ebenefits updated status from "Pending of Decision" to "Pending Decision Approval. With a new estimated date 04/30/2019. What happens next. Will I know I'm approved before notification in the mail?

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
