Verify Employment VIA the worknumber. HELP!

Question

I've run into an issue verifying my employment with Speedway. As you all know, the VA is requesting that my employer fill out VA FOrm 21-4192 Request For Employment Information.
When I contacted the Employee Information line, they pointed me to the worknumber.
I contacted the worknumber and are telling me this.

Speedway will not disclose any employment information, it must be done through the worknumber.

These instructions apply if you want someone to verify your employment only (no income).

Provide your verifier with your Social Security Number and the name of your employer.

Tell your verifier to visit www.theworknumber.com and register inside the verifier area.

When I check out the verifier location of the site, it's asking the employer to pay 40bucks to verify my information.
I can't seem to find a way for the worknumber to fill out this simple piece of paper.

I'm not sure what the implications would be if I do not send in this form to ebenifits withing the 30day deadline

Any help or information would be great!
Thanks.

I have been through all that...thru "the work number" about 10 years ago.  

My suggestion:  Go ahead and have Va send the form to THE SPEEDWAY you worked at.  

It may go back to VA and that is good.  Or, your supervisor may feel sorry for you fill it out and sign it anway.  

Regardless, the VA wont deny your tdiu based solely on your employers unwillingnes/inability to send the form back.  You will still need a statement from your doctor that you are unable to work due to sc conditions, and a favorable voc rehab assessment is also a great idea.   

Dont sweat it, just "do all you can do", because:

All you can do is all you can do.  

But thats enough.

What is VOC rehab and what how would I go about getting an assessment?

Getting a statement from my doctor shouldn't be an issue, In what manner would be best in submitting the statement?
My UI claim is primarily for PTSD, Tinnitus, Bum knee, Anxiety, Tourettes and Seizures. All of which are SC.

Thanks!

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
