  • 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 Granted - Question

Question

Hello All,

I have a question about IU. My husband had an appeal since 2014 for IU and sleep apnea as secondary for PTSD. I just checked vets.gov and it shows that they issue a statement of the case on June 22, 2018 for his sleep apnea issue (which it was denied), however they granted his IU. I went to check ebenefits and his disabilities still show 80% but his benefit summary letter shows he is been rated at 100%. However, the currently award amount did not change or reflected the 100% amount. My question is, how long would it take for the summary letter to reflects the actual award amount (which it should be around $3,500)?

Congratulations on the IU - as stated in numerous postings here - ebenefits is notoriously behind on updates and accuracy. 

If you  need a letter for the ID card ( and you MUST take with you....DD214 -  to ID office to get your ID card- make an appointment for a card online. - google local base in your area for ID office. 

                         I am Retired Navy, still had to take a DD214  ( Stolen Valor I assume... just as a security measure) 

My  Retired ID card, is the same color as the IU 100%  card,    but I have the added benefits for Tricare/ health care eligibility on the back. 

 You can have the VA print off a copy of your new letter - at the hospital or outpatient clinics. You can also snail mail it with a call to the RO. 

It still..... states your "Rated" level as 80% , this will always be reflected in the area - as would any increases in the future.....

                                       since the 100% is AWARDED as IU .........and not a combined rating of 100% 

The letter,  says............... PAID  at 100% rate and list the amount.... 

I have not had a problem getting Vehicle registered or using it for my property taxes - I just draw an arrow to paid at 100% rate in case they cannot read. LOL 

I just got a fishing hunting licenses with this and entrance to state parks .

 when did they change the color of an id card for a veteran that is 100% - Last I checked they are tan like a dependents ID Card DD Form 1173

whereas a retirement ID card is DD Form 2 (blueish green) 

 

I think you many be mistaken about the color of the ID for a 100% disabled veteran

My ID is tan also, but because I'm 100% P&T the expiration date is "INDEF". My wife's card looks the same, but expires every 5 years.

I believe the difference is whether you are retired by the military or the VA.  Mine is blueish green but I received mine when the Marines declared me disabled.

if your rated for IU with P&T And you were 80% S.C. At the time you was awarded IU because you could not work due to your 80% rating,  then you got the CFR 4.16 Boost to the 100%rate  which is TDIU W/P&T it has all the benny's as a 100% Veteran.

So your actual rating is not 100% its 80% but getting paid at the 100%rate due to your 80% S.C. Disability.

You need to try to get the 80% increase to the 100%  then any other conditions that may arouse later on if you get a 60% rating for it  or a combined rating to the 60% you will meet the SMC Criteria Rating, this also helps in reduction of benefit's.

Color of the DOD I.D. Card for  commissary privileges is Tan It's been that color for the last 75 years or so or since War War II...The A.D. Personal and retired military do have the blueish/ greenish color ID Cards or Recent ETS Military such as Vetquest

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
