  • 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

P&T MH

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!

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

@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.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
