is it possible to cancel my disability compensation for certain conditions? And if so, would it be possible to request it again later in life? I know this will generate a lot of question as to why I would want to do this, etc, and I appreciate everyones concerns, but there is a personal reason why I am considering this and do not want to disclose it.

Thanks

Any reason to do this would be extremely foolish.

Can you tell us the reason you are even contemplating it.

Maybe you could privately contact one of the Hadit.com Elders that you feel that you could trust, Tell them the the reason. You never know, they may give you info. that you don't have too give up your compensation for whats going on.

I would think that once it is filed for, the cat is out of the bag. If its got something to do with employment, or fighting with your insurance company, I dont' think they have any right to, or access to VA medical records.

I dont know any reason why you could not do as you suggested...or even re apply after you "cancelled" it.

Of course, as was pointed out, just because you can do something, doesnt necessarily mean you want to run out and do it.

However, I am going to assume you have a compelling reason....I will take a wild guess and say you think you may get a certain job, but dont want your potential employer to know, and further feel you would not be eligible for benefits if you got this job.

Everything at the Va is always a risk. If you apply for more benefits, you take the chance that someone looks at your file and says, "Gee, this guy doesnt deserve more, he already has more than he deserves and we will do a reduction".

Of course, you dont need to tell the reason. But, the more clearly you explain your situation, the better the advice you get will be. That is, if you give a "generic" question, you are apt to get a "generic" answer.

But, if I was to write the RO and say "yada yada, I want this and that disability compensation cancelled....." and then later reapplied, I could see that request as the first reason for a new denial. It also might call into question any other thing you might be rated for, especially residuals. A potential employer (for one example) has does not any more access than what I give them to my health records or anything else, unless they are a federal agency and then they can get them anyway. Courts can get them, I suppose, with the right horsepower, but if it was something like that cancelling disability comp for the condition isn't going to erase it from your treatment records.

If its finanicial, your comp isn't 'income' unless you want it to be, unless you are applying for some form of federal benefits (like food stamps) or you are subject to child support (your disability may be protected from 'attachment' but once it hits your bank account it's jut money, and will be used by the court to set an amount)

Whatever decision you make is entirely up to you! I'm sure you have thought it out and came to this conclusion. I do agree with the others you may be able to do it, however; trying to get it back may prove difficult. I would also consider that the VA could possibly claim fraud for the time you did receive benefits and try to get that money back.

I respect your privacy.

If it is possible and you do it, I'd count on never being able to reverse it.

I wish you well.

Thanks for the all the replies, I think will not do it. It had to do with my pilot license, but I have to report it either way, if I get the payment or not, so cancelling the payment is not an option. Oh well, it was just a thought I had.

Take the compensation because the day you can't work you will be really grateful you have that money coming every month. It is all that keeps most of us afloat.

And, if it makes you feel any better let me assure you that they will not "pull" your license unless you are obviously incapable of being pilot-in-command (in which case, I'd think a responsible person (and most pilots ARE responsible people) would be already in the process of giving up their license).
I've got more cards in my wallet than I can keep track of, and that old Beech I've got out in the barn gets used with regularity and I hope I'll still be doing the same ten years from now. I plan on celebrating my 65th (on Friday) trying out my new Garmin GPS system. It's nice when you finally get kids with "disposable income" :biggrin: !

Welllll, first of all you must, of course, make sure that they have had the very best of private schooling, then you must, of course, make sure that their college(s) rank up there with, for example, Yale or, at the very least, SMU or Rice. Then, of course, you must make certain that their automobile(s) are of the very latest chic (Mercedes, at least) and that their clothes are purchased at Niemans or, at the very least, The GAP. And, of course, the POST-Graduate degrees must have, at least, summer sessions in Europe.
Then, if you are very lucky, they will, along about the age of THIRTY, become "employed", at which time you MAY be able to, at least, talk them into paying for their OWN car insurance, etc.
And, then, if you are still having a run of good luck, they'll buy you a birthday present (with their "disposable income"). And, all the while, they will keep reminding YOU that THEY have "advanced degrees" (which, of course, YOU don't HAVE, thereby making YOU "less educated and more ill-informed" than they are.).

Little SHITS! "Bout DAMN time they PAID UP"!:rolleyes:

But, WTF do I KNOW? I went to a State-supported "college", on "scholarship"! DUHHHH?

GET with some one at the NVLSP.org

To do what you want is not wise no matter what. you have the disability even if you are not getting paid for it. so if it was for a job it will not work and you would only lose out in the long run.
You posted on the net it this is here for ever. just like your VA records :angry:
