  • 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


I looked on my ebenefits today and saw that on a "claim for military pay in lieu of compensation was updated/filed in July" Why would this have been filed? I did not file it, and I did not retire from the service. I did have a case that a Court of Veterans Appeals judge was ruling on and my attorney called me a few weeks ago and said the might be open to reviewing IU for me.

Is this related possibly? How? I did get a separation payment when I left the service and the VA withheld all disability payments until is was all paid off. It took about 10 yrs but was satisfied. Since then I have received my monthly disability checks with no issues.If anyone can offer opinions about this that would be great.

I looked just a minute ago on VA.Gov and see that the claim has now been closed. The purpose of it was listed as Verification of separation pay amount (New)..Does that mean anything to anyone?

That is odd. First thing I thought of was recoupment of separation pay, but you said that was already done. Hopefully another member can provide some insight. Did you happen to call your VSO or 1-800-827-1000 to ask about it?

Speculating could be that the judge and or your attorney want to be sure that the correct amount was recouped prior to any decision.

What ebenefits (or VA.gov) says, plus a ten dollar bill will get you a cup of coffee at most places in town.  Or, without the ebenefits/va.gov reports you can get coffee for 5 dollars or less.  

In short, ebenefits is unreliable, out of date, and often just wrong.  You can do one or more of several things:

1.  Do nothing.  Wait for the envelope. 

2.  Call your attorney..he may be able to see VBMS file and know more. 

3.  Call "Peggy" at the 800 number and get still more unreliable and mostly useless information.

4.  Send an email to iris.

CRDP is automatic- when the VA has evidence of a veteran's eligibility to it- CRSC, on the other hand, must be applied for.

But others above are- your lawyer might know.

I will look at your past posts to see if there is anything there that could help us understand this.I get dozens of VA related emails a week, from various entities and had the impression that one of them indicated VA had made errors in separation payments of some veterans- I will see if I can find that  article- maybe it was from a VA lawyers site.

In this thread :


you mentioned how the law form contacted you- maybe they saw a potential CUE in the BVA decision to your detriment. Can you give us the BVA  Docket number?

      I have an attorney appealing my TDIU claim. I want to know if l can I file a secondary claim for my back and hips as a result of my TKRs ? Do submit the claim myself or do I need to go through the attorney? Can filing a claim during an appeal upset the appeal process?           Thanks

      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.
