  • 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?

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

    • 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 !!

    • 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.
