  • 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

5 years and 11 months later VA.Gov says GRANTED IU but a question

Question

Hello... THis is only my second post here but I visit often when I have questions to read others experiences.  Today I have a question... After 5 years and 11 months, VA.Gov reads that my appeal for IU was granted.  My question is about T and P though. 

I have been rated at 90% since May 2013.  I filed an appeal for IU and that is what the decision has been made on.  However, during the hearing the judge and my representative seemed to be leading toward a T and P claim.  I have seen where the veteran will file for an IU claim and when the decision comes it states IS TOTAL AND PERMANANT.  I am unable to see anything of Ebenefits or VA>Gov right now, says its all being updated. 

My VA.Gov states GRANTED  100% Rating for  Individual Unemployability 

Is it possible to be granted T and P when you did not originally file for that and it was not part of your appeal??

 

Thank you to all of you

Yes.  

    Generally, you dont "apply" for P and T.  The VA awards it whenever they award AND, they decide you are P and T.  

    However, we often say here not to rely upon Vets.gov or ebenefits, because that information is often out of date or just plain wrong.   So, you are going to just have to wait for the official envelope to know for sure.  

   

     CCK law explains TDIU: https://cck-law.com/news/tdiu-permanent/

You wont know for sure if you are P and T until you get the envelope and read it.

Yes Broncovet, that's one thing I have definitely learned through all of this... Ebenefits and Va.Gov are as clueless as I am to what is going on. 

Thank you for the reply and now to start waiting on the envelope

So I got the brown envelope today and called Washington to confirm what the judge had stated.... The letter in the envelope was not straight forward as to P and T but Washington reports I do have P and T and I'm eligible for all 100% rated benefits!!!  After 6 years of stress and worry this is finally nearing an end.  

Ebenefits and Va.Gov have not updated and the retro has not hit my account yet but still such a sigh of relief!! 

Thank you to all of you for your input to my questions recently

Congratulations!!  For P and T, the VA has a "code language" to prevent Veterans from getting too many benefits.  

Codes for P and T (on your VARO decision):  "No future exams are scheduled".  

or "Eligibility to Chapter 35 is established".  

Of course, outside of VA these terms are not the same as "P and T".  How would a state government worker, say, working in the place where taxes are collected, know what "no future exams are scheduled" means?  Answer:  They likely would not, and would require VA to send a letter confirming P and T.  The result is many more delays.  Thanks VA for making up your own lingo, often resulting in additional frustrations and additional delays for Veterans.  A simple, "permanent and total" would suffice, many dont know how to "convert" VA lingo into English.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
