  • 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

VA status changed from TDIU P&T to Schedular P&T


Question

I was awarded 100% TDIU P&T effective in 2011, I had a few other claims being processed. About two years ago, I was awarded a new 50% rating and the VA appears to have moved me to 100% schedular P&T. No future exams. I have a few questions. Does VA moving me to 100% schedular eliminate my TDIU status in the VA eyes? The reason I'm asking is I was thinking about getting a part time job to keep busy and pay into SS to complete my 40 quarters. It was my understanding that if you were TDIU you can not be employed. But, since the VA changed my status to 100% P&T does that open the door for me to work at all?

Also, after 10 years or more being rated at 100% P&T does that provide my spouse  access to DIC?

Being IU and 100% scheduler is possible.  If one condition is considered to cause your IU and you have other conditions that are 60% you are qualified for SMC S.  Otherwise you have to be 100% schedul

You need to make sure on this?

 that you may have been awarded P&T? with that extra 50% rating.

  That is usually a good sign that ''your disability s not expected to improve in your life time and no exams scheduled at this time''.P&T

 if you use a VSO ask him to find out IF they made your TDIU MOOT? He/She can look on the VBMS and see just how they have you rated and if the IU is moot..if you go back to work you need to make double sure you can.  you can also look on e benefits under EOB

What happen to me is I was TDIU P&T For over 10 years and I filed on another separate condition and was awarded a 70% rating, what they did with me they gave me the SMC S H.B. and a final 100% degree in my rating...However they mention nothing about the IU being Moot..so as for as I know I am still considered TDIU P&T  But I Can't work if I was free to do so  because of my  S.C. disability s

Thanks for the reply. I do use e benefits, but I don't see anything marked EOB in the search area. It does state on VA letter head e benefits allows you print that I'm still P&T and no future exams. I see nothing about TDIU, just 100%. When I was first rated TDIU, I was rated at 90%. After my last award of 50% it changed to 100%.

If your 50%was for increase on the 90% IU  Then you very well Maybe 100%scheduler ? but it should say if they made the IU moot or not?

I know on my e benefits now after I got the 70% rating on a separate condition , it has the circle that enlarges when hoover the mouse cussor over it   that says final 100% degree rating.

Yes on e benefits my rating shows final 100% degree rating too. Do you know anything about spouse receiving DIC  for 100% P&T rated Veterans? I believe I was told that in the past. If a Veteran passes before the 10 years to receive DIC it has to be from a service connected issue. But after 10 years they can receive DIC.

Humm

Your correct on the 10 years but thats for anything that the veteran dies from  but.

if the veteran was married 2 years prior  and died from a Service connected disability  the spouse is qualified to recieve DIC

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • 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.
