  • 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?

I just filled the 21-4192 and where it asked when did my SC disability begin to affect my employment and I answered 1980 when it began. Got kicked out of the NAV due to mental health reasons according to my DD 214.

I must have had at least 30 employers. My last 5 years reflect gross underemployment. I had to leave Vegas and relocate 800 miles and endure 6 months of low pay just to get the right-paying casino dealing job.

Those 2 letters are part of your proof. Part of, not all that you need.

If an employer falls under the ADA ( They have to have this ADA EEOC  info posted in their Main access to the job site)and if these were reasonable accommodations, you might have a basis for an ADA EEOC complaint.

 

 

Proof for proving I was disabled for IU? Should I submit them with the 21-8940?

I successfully sued a Vegas casino for violating my rights under the ADA. Tried to sue these birds, too, but the EEOC hack who took my application fouled it up for me. I may revisit that, for I suffered horribly under them and have proof my boss lied to HR about my schedule making me look like a no call- no show, a fireable offense, so I had no interest in returning. And I did file within time...

Yes.  The 21-8940 is required, as is proof of unemployability.  Send them in.  Some employers "do not" want to give reasons why you are no longer with the company.  Mostly, they dont want to be sued, so are as vague as possible.  They often do not give the real reason.  An exception is if you failed to show up for work.  They will usually say that.  How is it the employers' fault if the employee fails to show?  

Dont expect the employer to say that you were fired because of a sc disability.  THAT will almost never happen, and absolutely shouts "lawsuit", so it will be avoided almost every time.  Still, your ex employer "may" give you good evidence.  Example:

Employee Joe Smith took too much time off for what he called doctor appointments.  We needed him and simply could not do without him 3 afternoons per week for treatments.  

Sometimes an employer will let you know if you are "unable to perform" the duties of the job.  An example may be your job may require lifting 50 pounds.  Your doctor, if you had some types of surgury, may give restrictions where you cant lift 50 pounds.  If your employer does not have a position available that does not require you to lift 5o pounds, then you could be terminated for inability to do your job.  

In this case, they can blame your doctor, especially if its a job requirement you be able to lift 50 pounds.

When I finally lost my job my doctor wrote a letter saying I was no longer physically able to perform the job duties required.  They dropped my like a hot rock.  They informed the VA that I missed time due to my health, that I could not be trusted to work a full 40 hour week.  Speak to your employer or HR and see if they are willing to fill out a form for you.

I also filed charges against them with the EEOC. Could those documents be used as proof? It includes my statement made about a year ago and filed officially about them denying two requests for accommodations (wouldn't give me a day off for my sleep test that I was desperate to get to treat my sleep apnea and stop the brain damage) even with two doctor's signatures. I'm sure they'll give me copies if I can't find mine.
Dang, I should find the copy of the VA sleep doc's recommendations after getting my sleep lab results. It showed my blood oxygen perfusion getting down to 55% twice an hour.

    • 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.
