Thanks for the feedback!
I work at a VA clinic and three employees here work full time and are 100%. (ADDED by McHammer38) There are actually two ways to receive 100% VA disability. One is to be rat…ed 100% based off the severity of your service-connected disability and the other is called Individual Unemployability (IU). Individual Unemployability is a part of the VA's disability compensation program that allows the VA to pay certain veterans compensation at the 100% rate, even though the VA has not rated their service-connected disabilities at the total level. A veteran must be unable to maintain substantially gainful employment as a result of his/her service-connected disabilities. Additionally, a veteran must have: · One service-connected disability ratable at 60 percent or more, OR Two or more service-connected disabilities, at least one disability ratable at 40 percent or more with a combined rating of 70 percent or more. Veterans who are in receipt of Individual Unemployability benefits may work as long as it is not considered substantially gainful employment. The employment must be considered marginal employment. Substantially gainful employment is defined as employment at which non-disabled individuals earn their livelihood with earnings comparable to the particular occupation in the community where the veteran resides. Marginal employment is generally deemed to exist when a veteran's earned income does not exceed the amount established by the U.S. Census Bureau as the poverty level for the veteran only. Though it may sound counter-intuitive, if the veteran gets a rating of 100% disabled, he is allowed to work full time. This was explained to me by a VA counsellor. It made sense at the time, but I can't recall the logic now. Hope that helps.
Maybe. Disability payments can considered to be partially or fully taxable income.
Yes, you can only collect payment for one or the other on any given day though. If you only do your weekend MUTA 4 training in a month, you will only receieve a prorated a…mount for your disability (26 days). If you do more Reserve training, it is even les disability compensation.
Your VA Disability check is NOT taxable. VA Disability is a compensation NOT earned income.
It is unlikely. It becomes more likely when you can show that you have been to neurologist after neurologist and have tried many things. It becomes more likely when you have… a letter from one of those doctors stating just how disabling they are AND how it would impact your ability to work. You need to show specifics, the vomiting, etc. It also becomes more likely if you are depressed because of your chronic migraines, because depression is more likely to be awarded SSDI. Definitely get a lawyer to take your case. They take people much more seriously when they have a lawyer. The SSDI process goes something like this. You are denied twice. Everyone is denied twice, except those with terminal illnesses. There are forms you fill out to appeal. After the second time you go to an informal hearing. This is where the majority of people get awarded SSDI. This whole process takes years. They want to wait people out. Some states, not all, allow people who are applying for SSDI to get on welfare while this whole process is going on. You pay them back with your retroactive check IF you get awarded Soc. Sec. If you do not get awarded Soc. Sec., they eat the cost. After you have applied for SSDI at your local Soc. Sec. office, go to the local welfare office to see about services they offer.
how can i check on an undelivered check
Yes, however; there is a big exception. If you are collecting VA Disability and getting the 100% Service Connected Compensation based on "Unemployability" then the answer is n…o. Call your DAV rep or County VA Rep for specific details.
As far as I know, there is a strict limit as to how much money you can earn and still receive 100 percent disability. I have heard that even working a part time job could put …you over the limit. This goes for anyone rated 100 percent or anyone at 60 percent or higher who has been classified as "unemployable."
When filing for SSD or SSDI, you should list all of your health disabilities and significant conditions and diseases.
Fifty to one hundred percent of your highest rank pay during your time in service, and based on the nature of the disibility and how you acquired it
VA disability compensation is not taxable income that you would report on your 1040 income tax return. IF you do not have any other gross worldwide income to be reported on …your 1040 income tax return. None of the social security benefits will be taxable income to you and you would NOT be required to file a federal 1040 income tax return
Is a person who is disabled and on SSDI required to repay a debt if a judgment was ordered against them while they are currently on SSDI?
Yes. Addendum: You have a legal obligation to pay your debts; however, under Federal law (Title 26 USC § 6331 and Title 26 USC § 6305), Social Security disability income c…an only be levied by the US Secretary of the Treasury to satisfy delinquent Federal taxes or (under certain circumstances) child support or alimony payments. Social Security Rule 79-4 exempts Social Security disability income from "levy, attachment, garnishment and other legal process," except as specified. This does not prevent creditors from attaching income or certain assets from other sources, however. "Generally, Social Security benefits are exempt from execution, levy, attachment, garnishment, or other legal process, or from the operation of any bankruptcy or insolvency law. The exceptions are that benefits are subject: (1) to the authority of the Secretary of the Treasury to make levies for the collection of delinquent Federal taxes and under certain circumstances delinquent child support payments; and (2) to garnishment or similar legal process brought by an individual to enforce a child support or alimony obligation." Section 207 of the Social Security Act provides: "The right of any person to any future payment under this title shall not be transferable or assignable, at law or in equity, and none of the moneys paid or payable or rights existing under this title shall be subject to execution, levy, attachment, garnishment, or other legal process, or to the operation of any bankruptcy or insolvency law."

What is the average time for the va to settle an initial claim for ptsd service connection disability benefits?
I have not been able to find any definitive stats on an average time. A lot depends on complexity of claim, how quickly supporting documents are provided, when appointments ar…e scheduled, the region you live in, etc. I can say that my husband filed his claim back in December of 2009 and we're still waiting.
In US Army
Yes. If you're ordered to pay alimony, that status does nothing to change it, although it may be possible to use that in appealing an alimony ruling.
You can sue your married girlfriend if you have a legal reason to sue. You will need to speak to an attorney.
