  • 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

Saw my SVO about IU form

Question

In my decision letter, they mentioned UI was deferred because I have not submitted the proper form (is that an indication it's sorta pre-approved?). So, I went to my SVO for help to fill it out but she gave me the forms for my past employers. Said to have the HR departments of my 7 jobs fill them out and mail them to me. 
Is this standard operating procedure?

If you dont fill out and send in the required form, you wont be considered for TDIU.  No, it does not mean its "pre approved".  To my knowledge there is no such thing as "pre approved".  

You must meet every single criteria, including character of discharge, all documentation, diagnosis, nexus, and in service event, plus you have to sign the forms and submit any information VA requires.  

Send in the applicable forms, or expect to be denied.

Sounds like it is standard then, thanks.

I just don't trust what some of these SVO staffers say and do. The way they act sometimes it's like they're just making shit up. Like the day US Treasury garnished a third of my monthly income, just after leaving a homeless shelter, this SVO bird had me fill out some stray document, which was completely ignored. The next week she was canned. 


Ok, she also said it would be best if I contacted or went to each HR department of the 7 jobs I've had the past 5 years. I suppose the motivation for an HR staffer to fill them out may not be too high. So, a visit could help.

I did not get a half dozen forms from past employers.  What TDIU really means is that presently you are not able to sustain gainful employment solely due to your SC disability.  This is what your doctor should say in his report.  Perhaps the VA has made getting TDIU harder but if I had to get form from my past 7 employers I would have been screwed.  I had a long time employer and I was getting SSDI and disability retirement so that should have been enough.  I still had to appeal to get TDIU which pissed me off no end.  Most of what the VA says is just BS.  Better to get your info right here.  Your do need to submit the TDIU form.

Thank you. I sensed horseshit, like a snipe hunt, or disgronifier.

I would still get your last employer to submit the form requested.  My employer also submitted a letter on my behalf and that carried weight when my TDIU was finally approved at the BVA.  It was mentioned in the BVA decision.

    • 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.
