  • 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

Question

I am posting this to encourage other vets. I was just awarded P&T 100 IU for Mental Health. I have been told you will not get P&T for Mental Health. I have also been told due to my recent graduation of Voc Rehab prior to my IU claim, which I submitted due to receiving a Feasibility Letter upon graduation, that I would most likely be denied IU. Do not let anything stop you if you cannot maintain feasibility. Apply especially if you receive a Feasiblity Letter from Voc Rehab. I want to thank Gastone from this site. Hadit.com has been a tremendous blessing. Bless all. I am going to enjoy finally owning a home.

This is good Ddsr..

I  am guilty of saying I don't think you would be approved for the IU If your able to sit in a class room and get a degree....from now on I will keep my mouth shut about telling veterans that.

However the 100% P&T Is better than getting the IU.  (JMO)

  and I sincerely send you my apology to you

 I am glad to hear you was Awarded the 100%P&T and you came back and posted this.

Thank You for the blessings Buck. Lets just say the Power of the Voc Rehab Feasibility Letter along with good DBQ and employment problems is golden. It does not matter in my opinion what education age etc. etc. one is. Also Mental Health IU does not mean one will be believed to improve as my award has proven that. Many Veterans believe this as well. Bless all and I will continue to fight on for my fellow veterans to never give up if you struggle with mental health issues. Put in that claim, and for goodness sakes get a Vocational Rehab Opinon. THAT IS GOLDEN ALWAYS!

@Ddsr, congratulations!

If you have not already, you may want to explore SSDI.

Additionally, check out Voc Rehab's Independent Living Program.

@Ddsr - Congratulations - I think I replied to your earlier postings -

Award IU - same month I graduated from Voc Rehab - My Psychologist had written a note somewhere he thought it best I concentrate on therapy vs work - I worked 43 years straight before applying for SSDI - my draw is bigger than most, but less than full SS.  ( I had 2 AAS degrees before the B.S. degree) also P & T - without even asking for it...so yes it can be done! 

I am also grateful for "Concurrent" pay - which started in 2004 where you can keep the Navy Retirement (USN 1975-1997) and the VA disability.... 

Blessings all around.

    • 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.
