  • 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

IU after Retirement

Question

I was talking about this in another thread but as @Buck52 said I don't want to hijack someone else thread.

I will be retiring from the federal government around the end of October, I will be receiving a retirement check from them, I am also retired from the Air Force. My quest is can I get IU even though I am retired?

Once I retire I will also go to the VA Voc ReHab. I am also hoping (like everyone else on this site) to get to 100% P&T I almost there now.

If I do get 100% P&T is there any need to pursue IU?

As long as you had it (E.D.) After You were diagnose for a S.C. condition that is related to the ED , VA uses the Slidenafil TABS to an alternative to Viagra

The medication you take that will/can cause the E.D. is what you need to use as your evidence in your Secondary VA Claim for E.D. And a qualified Dr to Nexus the two.

They will Probably just use the claim date for your E.D.  because this is a non direct service connection claim

Claim Evidence for Secondary E.D.

1.Diagnose for E.D. 

2.Currently taking E.D. Meds (the Slidenafil)

3 Nexus from qualified Dr.(Detail what medication will be related/cause of the E.D.)

@Richard1954 I am a Federal employee and am under FERS and not CSRS (I wish I was CSRS I would get a lot more in retirement), HQ human resources has calculated my retirement and SS does not effect my retirement. I should be okay as far as that goes.

@paulstrgn I think youu have it mixed up... if your a FERS retiree your social security is effected. I retired under FERS

Congress created the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) in 1986, and it became effective on January 1, 1987. Since that time, new Federal civilian employees who have retirement coverage are covered by FERS. FERS is a retirement plan that provides benefits from three different sources: a Basic Benefit Plan, Social Security and the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). Two of the three parts of FERS (Social Security and the TSP) can go with you to your next job if you leave the Federal Government before retirement. The Basic Benefit and Social Security parts of FERS require you to pay your share each pay period. Your agency withholds the cost of the Basic Benefit and Social Security from your pay as payroll deductions. Your agency pays its part too. Then, after you retire, you receive annuity payments each month for the rest of your life.

@Richard1954 I would be retiring from the federal government with approximately 40 1/2 years of federal service (I bought back my military time) so there would be no penalty for me. In fact if I were to retire prior to 62 I would get a FERS offset $1,047 until I am eligible for SS. I would have no penalties when I retire since I have the age and the number of federal service years. The only thing that happens is I lose my military retirement check when I retire since I bought back my military time., but what I lose I gain in my retirement check being larger.

I would also get SS (at a reduced rate since I would start at 62) plus my two minor sons would receive SS (that will be for their college fund).

I did file my claim for ED yesterday, not sure how long it will take to make a decision on but it is filed.

On a side note I had talked with someone from the VA (I had emailed the regional director in Roanoke, VA and she had him contact me) with speaking with him we talked about when does the VA look at previous disabilities. He told me whenever someone files for an IU the VA will look at all of their disabilities again. It sounds like the VA does not want to approve anyone for IU which I think is crap!

    • 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.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • 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.
