Working and Aid and Attendance



Hey, I don't have a job, but I'm in Voc Rehab to get a job. I think I qualify based on the severity of my mental disorder and how my wife helps me to get up in the morning, maintain hygiene, medication management, had to have knives and shavers locked up in my house, and no guns in my house. She is also my general caregiver, but I didn't qualify for the caregiver program because I think it's because I'm in voc rehab. My wife and I create goals for me everyday to accomplish. I can make meals with supervision. On my worst days, I can't get out of bed or attend to the wants of nature. On my good days, I'm good for about half the day and then I have a mood swing. Doctor is trying to fix this, but after a few years, I really don't see the hope. I don't want to take something I don't deserve, but do you think I qualify for Aid and Attendance even though I'm going through voc rehab so I can try to get a job? I failed at Voc Rehab 3 times already, but I figure I try again. Currently, I'm 100 Permanent and Total based off PTSD alone and my other conditions add up to 60% and I am considered Homebound. Also, if I do qualify for Special Monthly Compensation L, do you keep Special Monthly Compensation S or does L replace S?

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
