  • 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 Form 21-674c


Question

I am working on completing form 21-674c, Request for Approval of School Attendance, with my daughter who is a high school senior.  She will turn 18 in February but will not finish high school until June 2020.  I have two questions.  First,  since she is not sure where she will attend college, do I need to complete this form again in the fall showing the school she is attending and using the expected graduation date from that program?  Also, I am confused about Part II (13).  She receives these benefits because her father is deceased.  She did not inherit an estate from him.  Do I need to fill in the value for his estate (which is still unsettled) that I inherited as the surviving spouse or are they only looking for assets that she has?  Thanks for any help.

If she's 18 now, or soon,  she qualifies for DEA while in HS.Check here to see if her school is on the list of schools registered with VA : https://inquiry.vba.va.gov/weamspub/buildSearchInstitutionCr

Ok so from what I can read on here you need to fill out what she currently has not on what might happen.   That is like saying well I might hit the lottery tomorrow should I throw that down?  Nope.  K

She should get public service forgiveness for at least part of them, if she's an MD.

I would go off of what she has at the time of filling out the form and nothing else.  

Also did you file for DIC?

If your husband died of a service connected disability or his disability was 100% or he was on TDIU for ten years you need to file for DIC.  It is a benefit paid to a spouse after a veteran's death.  Not knowing your situation I cannot say if you qualify but you need to file to get the benefit if you are entitled.  Also if he had a pending claim you need to file for a substitution of claimant.  Please see broncovet's post.  The link will not post but I will place his words here:

Have your spouse:

1.  File for substitution of claimant, use your attorney or VSO.  Just keep going with the appeal, "as if" you are still alive and your family gets the retro.  How cool to send your grandkids to college on your retro!!!!

2.  File for DIC.  Hint:  If you died of a service connected condition OR if you died for any reason (and you were 100 percent P and T for 10 years) then you get DIC.  

    So, please inform your spouse of your choice of representative (law firm, VSO, or non attorney practioner) and have them contact them when you pass.  Tell her you want her to continue your claim (or appeal) with a substitution of claimant.

For part 1 you fill it out each time they change schools. My son got some of his dea in high school so we had to fill it out again when he went to college.

Yes, we all currently get DIC.  It is the DIC that we need to continue until she graduates from high school.  She will be moving forward with the additional VA education benefits after that.  I have just about concluded that since the estate was not left to her at all, rather it was left to me, I do not need to include the value of the estate on this form at this time.  That may change once the estate completely settles but that will probably be another year or so.  Thank you for the input.

      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.
