  • 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

Question

Hello, My  total combined disability is 90%.  70% MDD, 20% right shoulder glenohumeral joint osteoarthritis, 20% left shoulder chronic subluxation 

10% dermatitis ( due to chemical exposure ). 10% tinnitus, 0% sms( k).  0% scar.  I am receiving 100% TDIU.  

I recently had a C&P exam for re-evaluation of my 70% MDD

The decision letter states  1. Evaluation of MDD with bipolar disorder 70% disabling, is continued.  
                                             2. Basic eligibility to Dependent’s educational assistance is established from date of review resulting in cancellation of routine future examinations.  
                                
my benefit verification letter now states.  You are considered to be totally and permanently disabled due solely to your service-connected disabilities?  Yes

So even though my combined rating is 90%.  Am I now 100% P&T?  Am I  considered to be a 100% scheduler?   Is there a difference between P&T and T&P. Or are they the same.

p & t and t & p are the same thing. You are not schedular but for rating purposes you are 100% and will be paid that rate due to individual unemployability. You are permanent and totally disab

You are the only person I have read about going from tdiu to a scheduler rating. I am currently rated at 70% tdiu for depression. I have had this rating for 7 years. I want to shoot for a scheduler 100 % rating.  Do you have any suggestions for me? I am also looking for a lawyer who has done this before.

Hey RichieCap,  I exit in military in 1992 I did not know about any compensation disability benefits until 2005 I was unaware that I can receive these benefits so I tried to get service connected for five years for numerous conditions in 2010 I got 10% for a shoulder condition and then 30% secondary major depression to shoulder condition. Then I got denied for numerous things up until 2016 during that time everybody said I know what to do I can help you and it really didn’t work out so I started learning the ins and outs Anyway with the 10% shoulder and 30% in MDDThen I got 10% for a skin condition that took me to 40% and then I want from 40 to 90% then I got TDIU then I got SSDI at 46 years old anyway what is all your service connected conditions in one of the ratings for them and do you have any secondaries submit that to me and then I can figure out what else we can do to get you get 100

Oh I forgot to tell you when I got the 90% combined with TDIU. Three years after I had my first reevaluation then they read any permanent and total no more future exams but I’m not a scheduler I’m 90 % combined 100% TDIU with P&TI I’m  working on getting the scheduler but I receive all the benefits is 100% schedule would receive I’m just not allowed to work still

Congrats! I don't believe getting TDIU qualifies you for the free insurance but you do qualify for the other mentioned benefits.  

 

Am I eligible for Service-Disabled Veterans Life Insurance?

You may be eligible for S-DVI if you meet all of the requirements listed below.

All of these must be true. You:

Were released from active duty on or after April 25, 1951, and didn’t receive a dishonorable discharge, and

Were rated for a service-connected disability (even if only 0%), and

Are in good health except for any service-connected conditions, and

Apply within 2 years from the date we grant your new service-connected disability

Note: An increase of a rating you had before—or a rating of Individual Unemployability, meaning you can’t work—doesn’t qualify you for S-DVI.

      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.
