    • A bit about Tbird and HadIt.com for those who've asked...

      The following is on my About page, but some have been asking how this all happened. So here is my little story. Tbird US Navy 1983 – 1990 E-6 HadIt.com the website domain registered Jan 20, 1997 the domain is registered and paid for through Jan 21, 2023 at which time I plan to register it for another 15 years Lord willing and the creek don't rise. I guess the best place to start is Jan 1991; I had gotten out of the navy Dec 1990. At my separation seminar, there was a DAV rep Jim Milton he told us to bring our medical records in and he would look through them for us and let us know if we should file a claim with the VA. Well, bless his heart, he opened my medical file, reads the first insert, looks me straight in the eye, and says you will be 50% for the rest of your life and he would file the claim for me. 50% was for surgery I had in the service. True to his word he met with me and talked with me for a long time filled out my paper work and urged me to file for PTSD. I would not file the PTSD claim, nor even discuss it. By Feb 1991 I had moved to the San Francisco bay area and was staying at a friends apartment and pretty much I was just a puddle. In desperation one night I called suicide hot line, I had no job, no idea about going to the VA. They talked with me for a long time and explained to me that I could go to the local VA hospital even if I did not have insurance. Now, I know what you are thinking if I was 50% why didn't I just go to the VA in the first place, two reasons 1, this was Feb 1991 and the 50% didn't come till May and 2, even if it had come through it is unlikely that I would have had the mental acuity at the time to put the two together. I relate this here because it is where so many of our brothers and sisters are coming from, perhaps where you started. Fuzzy and unsure, in pain and sometimes homeless they come to the VA hospital for help. And that is where I ended up. Up to the pysch ward I went, blah, blah, blah, a few days later I was released with a promise of a call from the out patient program, which I would soon be entering. Blah, blah, blah, after many missed communications, and no call backs I was at the Day Hospital everyday M-F. And this brothers and sisters is where I began to learn and formulate my plan for HadIt.com. Veterans, veterans everywhere…I spent a year in the day hospital and about another year at a sheltered workshop before I got back on my feet. So I just talked to veterans everyday waiting for appointments, waiting for prescriptions, waiting for a vet rep and I started to learn the system. While in the navy I was data analyst and had to learn a 5 volume manual and just about anything you were suppose to do was in that manual. So I figured there must be a manual on how to do a VA claim or at the very least regulations. So I found out about the Code of Federal Regulations, United States Code, Veterans Affairs Manuals and so on and so forth. Of course this was 1991/1992 I was living in a tiny studio apartment in a particularly bad neighborhood, working in a sheltered workshop making a nickel per envelope I stuffed throw in PTSD and you will see that it was a difficult task for me to get somewhere where they had copies of these, let alone that they would let me look at. And there was so much knowledge around me, it was like the gold rush in those days, I could just sit on a bench a veteran would sit down next to me a little conversation later I had another nugget, I made copious notes. Phone numbers to call, ask for this guy or that guy he'll give you the straight scoop and they'd slip me a piece of paper with a number on it. You want to read this regulation or that one and another slip of paper into my hand. I spent a lot of time on those benches watching the squirrels they gathered their nuts and I gathered mine :) So I'm thinking I could put a little handbook together print it out and hand it out at the VA. Or perhaps fliers. Still formulating, time goes by, 1994/1995 I am being treated for PTSD regularly and doing and feeling much better and I go to work for a company as a marketing systems analyst and I discover the internet. Well let me tell you that was perhaps one of the most significant life changing events I have ever experienced. And I might add finally a positive one :) It seemed only natural to me that surely there must be a website that contained all the knowledge I wanted, well as it turned out not so much, lots of stuff but I wanted to get straight to the claims information and there was a lot of stuff to wade through to get to it. So taking my lesson from the squirrels earlier I started to gather, gather, gather…and learn HTML and work as a marketing systems analyst and work my claim. 1996/1997 major PTSD cork blows and unemployed. Working my claim, working the website. 20 Jan 1997 register HadIt.com domain name right after getting off the phone with the VA and saying I've had it with this. As fate would have it the old DAV board goes down just as mine opens up and folks start to wander in. So HadIt.com has two main components the website which supports the discussion board with links, articles, research resources etc. The website starts to grow, I can't tell you how many times I had to switch servers for space and features. I continue on a downward trend and in 1998 ended up back home in St Louis living in my sisters basement in therapy and working it, I swear I would have swung a dead chicken around my head at midnight naked if I thought it would have helped. The website continued to do great during this time, I just stayed in the basement bought new software, new books, and learned how to make things work and I continued to use this knowledge to make HadIt.com better. My 100% finally came through from the VA and I had a friend who is an advocate who helped me thru my SSDI claim, he was literally at my side thru the entire process and that came through for me. My therapist and sister continued to try and get me to leave the basement, but to no avail. At some point in 1998 or 1999 I put a counter on the website and was shocked to discover how many visitors we were getting. Time goes by my sister gets married and I move from the basement to the upstairs, there is much celebration that Aunt T is living in the light again. More time goes by and I settle into my life in St Louis and spend more time on the site trying new things, finding more information. 2003 I buy my own home VA loan. For years now I have just considered HadIt.com my job and I get up every morning go to the office and work for several hours, take an afternoon break and see where the rest of day takes me. I have a place in the office to use the computer and a comfortable to place to read journals and articles and take notes. Blah, blah, blah so that is my story and HadIt.com's intertwined.

Proposal To Discontinue Iu-Have Not Received Va Form: 21-4140

Question

Posted · Report post

I just received a proposal to discontinue entitlement to Individual Unemployability because I failed to return VA Form 21-4140.

Also, proposal to discontinue chapter 35 for the same reason.

The VARO decision was made March 16, 2012 and received on April 20, 2012.

I was given 100% with IU P&T effective date: 01/14/2010

I appealed for effective date of claim and a favorable decision on (08/19/2011) of 30% back to 12/01/1997 prior to 01/14/2010.

1). They never sent me the 21-4140 form to be fill out.

2). They just made a decision and sent it out, problably because I am purchasing a home with a VA guaranteed loan and while handling my folder they saw the "Employment questionaire" missing.

What I have done:

1). Since I am given 60 days to submit VA Form 21-4140-1, I sent form via Postal Service returned receipt on 04/21/2012 (yesterday).

2). I also E-mailed and Faxed a copy to my VFW representative, will talk to him tomorrow.....I will send one every year from now on regardless.

Why does the VA make a decision without first sending out the form?

What will happen now?

If you are getting IU, it is your responsibility to send in the form yearly..you can get these online. However, if you are not working, and send in the form, then you should be ok.

Do respond to the proposol to reduce, however, or they will reduce you.

Actually, this is no big deal... if your not working a letter to that effect is all that is necessary or you can send the form either way... a proposal to discontinue ... is just that.. it is automatically triggered when the va doesn't receive the form......once you respond the problem goes away...

You need to request a hearing today or your reduction could take place. Having a hearing could delay that reduction until they can process your form. jmo

Every here gave good advise.

"Why does the VA make a decision without first sending out the form?"

They are hoping you don't return the form or appeal the decision.

About 5-6 years ago there was quite a big hoopla in the electronic vets communities because VA was proposing to reduce countless vets ,nationwide, who were never sent the employment form.

I think it was John 999 here, who advised all vets with TDIU or 100% SC to print off a bunch of these forms and mark their calendars to when the VA usually would do their annual check on these benefits and then send it to VA themselves with proof of mailing and a copy to their VSO too.

I think it was a VA BS tactic years ago to hopefully reduce some comp payments (in my opinion) because it was not a coincidence that so many TDIU/100% vets never got these forms in the mail that year and luckily were quite vocal on the internet about it and I think it was questioned at a H VAC hearing.

I just came back from the local VA Contact office and the front desk clerk helped me.

He gave me a date stamped copy of the 21-4140 for my records and noted it in the system, that they have received it and that I haven't worked for the last 12 months.

He said he will send it to the corresponding station address (PR) via UPS and that I should be o.k., no need to request a hearing.

He also said the VA in PR mailed the form in January, I moved on Nov. 27 2011 from PR to Orlando, Fl. made change of address at the VA health system on Dec. 2011 and VA contact office on March 5, 2012.

During this move the letter did not reach me, this are the consequences of not changing addresses right away at the Hospital and Regional level.

Personally, I don't think they mailed it because my sister would have let me know about it.

Thanks, to everybody for the help,

I, personally, sense that you could face a reduction, for a short time but certainly hope I'm wrong. A hearing request could have stopped that. jmo Remember, VA employees cannot be held responsible for anything they "say." Let us know how it works out. Thanks!

RAFA - you may be too late already but I'd request one anyway. They allow 30 days from the date of their notice, plus a couple of days for postal haldling, and it looks as tho you didn't receive it until April 20, 2012. You can always cancel the hearing if you receive a written notice that your reduction order is rescinded. jmo

T8r - you are correct about the 60 days but that's on the actual reduction. A claimant only has 30 days to request the hearing, which is the only way to delay or stall the actual reduction, from happening at the time stated. Thanks for pointing out the 60 day thing, for clarification.

PR, I just came back from the Post Office and I mailed the request for a hearing via certify mail---there is one thing left for me to do, is get in contact with my VFW rep in PR, he is good and I have a good rap with him.

Right now, according to his recorded message he is out of town attending a seminar in Wash. D.C. , he'll be back on 04/30/2012 (monday).

I have Faxed him copies of everything he will go straight up to adjudication and take care of it. I have done everything I could do, now I have to let the system work out. nevertheless I am not sleeping.

Thanks, thanks

PR and to those who were kind to give me some insight into my problem, today (05/07/2012) I received decision that VA has reconsidered their decision of proposed action based on VA Form 21-4140-1 "Employment Questionaire" received on 04/25/2012.

The propposed change will not be implemented. And my monthly rate will continue the same.This took less than 16 days to resolve since the day I was notified of the proposed decision.

1) I quickly responded with 21-4140-1

2) I requested a hearing within 30 days, just in case 21-4140-1 did not reach my C-file in time.

3) I contacted my VSO and sent him copy of the proposed decision to reduce and signed submitted 21-4140-1 and asked him to look into this.

What happened here was that I moved from PR to Orlando Florida, I quickly made a change of address with VA benefits office at the hospital, but somebody along the way entered the wrong address.

The VA sent the 21-4140 to " 5952 Bent Pine Dr. #606" It should have been "5225 Bent Pine Dr. #606" it was sent to the wrong address. The mail problably was returned, so the VA made an honest attempt and mailed it to my last (previous) address in PR; I called my sister and she said she forgot about it, since I no longer live there.

Once I received the letters from her I confirmed the error, this was additional proof that the VA made an address error, nevertheless everything is o.k. now.

Thanks.

I don't wait to get the form 21-4140 from the VA. I get it off the web and send it certified mail to the VARO. The VA once got my address mixed up with another vet with my first and last name. My pills and everything else started going to some place in Maine. The VA swore I put in a change of address. They will lie and do anything to cover their miserable asses.

I've been 100% IU since MAY 2012. May 2013 I will have to submitt a 21-4140 income verification form. When I initally was awarded IU my DAV Rep. told me that stock investments, rental income, and accounts recievables (from past work performed) wouldnt count as "gainful employment"....Since then I've far exceeded the threshold was $11,484. Today I got a call from a different DAV Rep. as they constantly change. She tells me that ANY income reported to the IRS HAS TO BE DECLARED on the 21-4140; regardless of how that income came about. She also told me that if that income exeeds the threshold was $11,484; then I WILL lose my TDIU benefits. I've spend 3 days taking to tax attorneys, VA disability attoorneys, and accountants....NOBODY HAS A CLUE WHAT TO DO OR HOW TO ADVISE ME. The best advice I got was do what you want and keep your fingers crossed!!? Please help; any advice?
