  • 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

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.

Its a disgrace what some people will do for money.

I stopped give hand-outs to Homeless Veterans.

that stand on the street corner with a sign they hold up 

Homeless Veteran need food/money anything.

I use to give these guys 5/10 bucks when I seen them begging for food.

Until the News media did an undercover story on this particular  so called homeless veteran..

at the end of the day he would go home to a nice well built brick home in a respected neighbor hood and clean -him self up shaven and nice close nice car and the news media followed him  he would go to the casinos and stay all night gambling.. (he probably was not a Veteran?)

..I said to my self no more from me .Homeless Veterans are ignorant to the fact they can get help  most buy wine and booze that stand on the street corner  but they don't need to be homeless  they can seek help from the VA Them self ...even may file compensation claims  but they are just to Ignorant to do that.

People that exploit veterans directly or indirectly deserve harsh punishment.

P.S. I used to do a lot of forensic psych evaluations in North Carolina (criminal cases) so I'm pretty familiar with the judicial system there and how to obtain (publicly-available) information. The perp in this case, Daniel D. James was on the docket for 1 Apr 2019 as the article indicated. For these initial arraignment hearings there usually isn't much info, and that's true for his case. It does list his file number though, which makes it a little easier to research down the road when he finally agrees to a plea bargain (presumably - he'd be stupid to plead his case before a jury). He's charged with a felony, Obtaining Property Under False Pretense, and a misdemeanor, violating a solicitation ordinance. His file number is  19CR 204599. The Public Defender's office is representing him.

Here's a link to the docket printout: DISTRICT Court Calendar: 04/01/19, AM Session in court Room 0301 for DISTRICT_CRIMINAL_COURT_ (PDF) or text version. He is #15 on the docket.

The worst part of this?  People are reluctant to help "real" Veterans with "real" needs, because there are so many fakes and scammers.  Thanks, Tbird for the heads up, most of us know how to donate to Tbird who really has been helping Vets for 20 years.  

Its interesting you dont call yourself a "non profit" even tho me thinks that is pretty much how it is.  I completely undestand why you would not want to go to the trouble and expense of becoming a "non profit".  That would take time and money.  Its better just to pay the tax on it, if there is profit at the end of the year.  

For married Veterans filing jointly, we can earn up to 32,000 per year and still owe no federal income tax.   However, Veterans on TDIU should report "earned" income.  The IRS has specific rules on what is "earned" income and what is "investment" income.  

Fortunately the VA does not insist Vets be penniless in order to get compensation.  Veterans may well have done well in the past and set aside some of that money for retirement, and earn investment income.  Its even ok to take all or part of your VA retro check and invest it, and derive income from that.  As the saying goes, "Its your money..

invest it or squander it on what you want."

    • 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?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • 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.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

      Financial contributions are never required, but always appreciated.

      NOT tax deductible, HadIt.com is NOT a non profit and any contribution you make is just a gift and cannot be deducted on your taxes.

      If you prefer to give through a subscription, you may subscribe here the rates are $5 per month or $50 per year and gives you an ad free experience on the forums.
