  • 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

Where Veterans included in the stimulus plan?

Until the full text is released and people fully sift through it, this might be the best speculative info at this time.

Here's a link to estimate how much of a stimulus you might get. You'll need your 2018 or 2019 (if you filed already) Federal tax forms. It is apparently based on your adjusted gross income.



Here are a few key questions in this topic that they provided speculative answers. Other questions/answers are on the above link.


What about people on Social Security? People on Social Security are eligible to receive the coronavirus relief payment as long as their total income does not exceed the limit. Low-income Americans on Social Security do not need to file a tax return. As long as they received an SSA-1099 form (the Social Security benefit statement), the federal government will be able to send them a payment via the usual way they get their Social Security payment. Retirees and people on disability are both eligible for the special payment.



Are the checks taxable? No, they are not taxable. The only catch is that technically a person’s 2020 income is what qualifies them for the payment. Since no one knows their total 2020 income yet, the government is using tax returns from 2019 and 2018 to figure out who qualifies for a check. It is possible that someone may have to pay back some of the money if his or her income this year turns out to be significantly more than it was in 2019 or 2018. That’s expected to be a relatively small share of people, and the money would not have to be paid back until April 15, 2021.

I had read the Senate was considering an extra $200 a month in the checks of SSA, SSI, and veteran disability. The $200 would have lasted into the end of 2021. Has anybody heard anything?

I feel like I xxxxxx myself this year as I didn’t feel like waiting for my form from SSA to file tax returns my wife got here’s i filed first week of January. I did the same thing last year idiot I am I thought ssdi was only to file in state taxes I recieved a notice I owe from 2018 luckily I had it saved so I paid it I’m sure I’ll get the same notice next year. I’m not like most I usually plan for the worst, and I usually recieve the worse so no harm no foul.....

Don't kick yourself too hard. I've seen recommendations that encourage an earlier than later filing of taxes. Experts say you are much more likely to have your tax refund submitted by someone else the longer you wait to send in.

Yesterday a Forbes site said SSA and VA vets will receive the stimulus :


"What about retired folks? Retired seniors are eligible.

What about those on government benefits? And those with no income? Yes, eligible folks include those with no income, as well as those whose income comes entirely from non-taxable means-tested benefit programs, such as SSI benefits. "


 bu maybe this is the best info I got"

"News 13 learned more from U.S. Sen. Richard Burr's office after the U.S. Senate approved the measure Wednesday night. The CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act will distribute up to $1,200 to individuals, $2,400 to married couples and $500 per child. It also includes American retirees who receive Social Security or disability benefits. Singles who make more than than $75,000 and couples who make more than $150,000 don't qualify for the immediate relief payment, but later could receive a tax credit. "
I got  this from Ray B. Davis:
And got this today:
In part:

"AARP worked to ensure that individuals who are collecting Social Security benefits for retirement, disability or Supplemental Security Income will be eligible for the stimulus checks, based on their tax returns or Social Security Administration data. AARP successfully fought to guarantee that low-income Social Security recipients would receive the full $1,200 check, not $600 as originally proposed.

The Senate bill does not set a date for when the checks would start to go out, saying only that the Treasury secretary would send the payments “as rapidly as possible.” The money could be sent either by mail or direct deposit."


All the VAOLA I have dealt with for decades, gave me VAOLA  paranoia-🥴

I never seem to believe positive news like this ,that might help vets and seniors.

But it seems to be TRUE!

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      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.
