How Do You Get Va Form 21 2545 Fillable and Sign It by CocoSign?

hi everyone welcome to another edition.of Facebook live from Chism Chism and.Kilpatrick.my name is Lindy - and I am an attorney.with the firm joining me today is.Nicholas Briggs who is an accredited.claims agent also with the firm and.Elise galovski another attorney here at.C CK so today we are going to be talking.about the most common myths and facts.surrounding tdiu or otherwise known as.individual unemployability this is a.really important topic because it is.something that our clients seek really.often because it has the similar or the.same monthly compensation as a 100%.rating so it's about $3,000 a month and.it stands for the fact that your.service-connected conditions do not.allow you to work and we'll get into.more details about tdiu as we progress.but please keep in mind that we are.filming this during the kovin 19.situation in our country and around the.world CCK is working almost entirely.remotely which has been a really unique.experience but we're here for you and we.are available should you need anything.hopefully we don't have any technical.difficulties but we did ask you earlier.in the week for any questions that you.might have for this broadcast so if we.don't address your question please check.out our website CCK - law comm we have a.lot of really great blogs with awesome.information you can also look at our.YouTube channel or our Facebook page for.other videos that address a whole wide.array of topics so hopefully you'll find.your answer there but again we are.talking today about tdiu myths and facts.and so as I said before t day.you stands.for the fact that you're unable to work.due to your duty or service-connected.conditions so I think with all of that.said we can hop into our first myth or.fact so let's see Elise our first.statement and why do you let me know if.this is a myth or a fact the steamin is.if I don't meet B A's tdiu rating.percentage requirements then I do not.qualify for an employability is that.true or false so that is going to be a.myth there's two different ways that you.can get tdiu there under Section 4.16.a or 4.16 B for point.one six a is that scheduler tdiu that's.what we more traditionally think of when.we think of TDI you and that's those.rating requirements that you mentioned.more specifically you can get you can.become eligible for TDI you if you have.one service-connected disability rated.at 60% or more or if you have more than.one service-connected disability with.one rated at at least 40% and the.combined rating being at least 70%.that's the scheduler way but you don't.have to have those ratings to be.eligible for TDI you the alternative way.is under 4.16 b which is also known as.an extra scheduler TDI you basically.that means you have such an exceptional.disability picture that even though.you're not meeting those scheduler.criteria you still are unable to.complete substantially gainful.employment and you're still eligible for.TDI you'd that way an example might be.if you are particularly disabled from.just one disability for example maybe.you have a 40% rating for your back.which is a pretty significant rating for.a back condition or maybe a 50% for PTSD.again a pretty significant reading but.it's not gonna meet that scheduler to.get you still it could render you unable.to complete substantially gainful.employment so you'll still be eligible.under four point one six B okay great so.that first statement was a myth you do.not just because you don't have the.certain percentage requirements to hit.the scheduler requirements for TDI you.or what would be listed under four point.one six a you can still be found.entitled to TDI you based on a four.point one six B otherwise known as the.extra scheduler TDI you correct okay.great and then do you have any advice or.pieces of evidence that you suggest one.would submit to the VA in order to get.TDI you granted under B or even under a.yeah absolutely so one example would be.if you have a social security.determination if you were deemed.disabled by the Social Security.Administration another you could have.medical records any lay evidence.from yourself and are people who are.close to you that know you um that have.observed your disability maybe former.employers co-workers anybody again who's.a who's witnessing your disability and.how impacts your ability to work you.could also have a vocational assessment.it could be from the VA or it could be.your own counselor who has worked with.you that's all evidence that could go.towards that awesome okay great thank.you very much and now let's move on to.our next myth or fact so Nick why don't.you let me know if this is true or false.veterans can collect Social Security.disability and tdiu benefits at the same.time durables so this one is true it is.a fact there are certain government.benefits that there are double dipping.rules for meaning you can't get both.programs at the same time but SSDI and.VA disability benefits don't count as.double dipping there is something called.Supplemental Security income where you.receive benefits that are needs-based.meaning that because you don't receive a.certain amount of money you are entitled.to that amount of need-based aid but.once you receive a certain amount of.income from other sources such as VA.benefits then there would be double.dipping rules that prevent you from.getting both but with SSDI it only.counts earns income meaning that you can.get both SSDI and VA benefits at the.same time great.I feel like this comes up a lot I I'm.always surprised how frequently I'm.asked this question by our clients so I.think this is a common myth or fact.depending on how you look at it but yes.so just so everyone is clear you are.allowed to collect Social Security.disability and tdiu benefits at the same.time just because you have Social.Security does not mean you are not.allowed or not able to get tdiu.so actually we're able to clear that one.up all right that one is pretty.open-and-shut so why don't we move on to.the next true or false fact or myth.okay so Elyse if Social Security.Administration deems you totally.disabled then you automatically get tdiu.benefits from the VA is that true or.false that is going to be another myth.um SSA and TDI you are to earth they're.coming from two different.administrations just as Nick just said.they have two different purposes they.have two different definitions of what.renders somebody totally disabled in our.world somebody is eligible for TDI you.if they're unable to complete.substantially gainful employment the.decisions are not binding on each other.but like we had just mentioned it can.still be helpful if you're deemed.disabled to show that because it's.persuasive evidence even if they're not.binding so it's a myth that you're.automatically entitled to TDI you if.you're deemed disabled by the Social.Security Administration but it.definitely is something that's in your.favor great so yeah if you do like Elise.just said if you happen to have you know.documentation from Social Security that.deems you disabled that can certainly be.helpful towards your TDI you claim and.for getting TDI you granted but.unfortunately it's not an automatic.grant it's not as though you can just.submit that to the VA and automatically.get a 100% for TDI you evaluation so.that is really good to know and good to.keep in mind also Nick and Elyse if you.guys have anything to say while we're.going through this just cuz it's not.your myth or fact feel free to jump in.sounds good okay great all right so.again that one was pretty clear as well.all right so let's move on to number.four so Nick VA can deny unemployability.benefits due to my being over the.retirement age is that a myth or effect.this one's a myth so the only thing that.VA can consider H 4 is non-service.connected pension through.service-connected benefits for.unemployability they're not allowed to.consider age as a factor it's something.that case law says they're supposed to.leave out of their consideration.entirely that's not to say that they.don't do it sometimes but whenever.possible you should make sure to point.that error out to be a because it's.something that we often see but it's.definitely not something they're allowed.to rely upon okay great so just because.maybe you retired a couple years ago.they and you're you know 75 that doesn't.mean that they can take that into.account in.signing weather tdiu is in your case.exactly it's important to mention though.that it's a two-way street meaning that.in the same way they can't use it to.deny you the mere fact that a veteran.might be 75 years old isn't in and of.itself a reason that VA can grant.unemployability it's something that is.limited just to the consideration of.whether or not the service-connected.disabilities prevent them from engaging.and substantially gain that's a really.great point so age cannot help you or.hurt you necessarily exactly depending.on how you look at it okay well that is.really good to know and good to keep in.mind and again I think that is pretty.straightforward as well okay on to our.next myth or fact okay Elise VA can.reduce or terminate unemployability.benefits is this true or false that is.unfortunately true.so tdiu is not a guaranteed benefit.unless VA has determined that you have a.condition that won't improve and that is.something that you get when it's.considered permanent in total TDI you.can become permanent in total but it's.not automatically permanent in total.basically what that means is you have a.condition that is what it sounds like.it's permanent there's a reasonable.certainty that it won't get any better.and you're also rated totally disabled.you can tell if you are pnt which is.important to do to see if your tdiu is.considered permanent in total basically.if you there are certain ways you might.be told that you are eligible for da.benefits you might have some time there.sometimes there's a little box that's.even checked that says you're 100%.disability is permanent sometimes in.rating decisions you'll also see a.notation that no further examinations.are scheduled that's also an indication.that your disability has been determined.to be permanent but unless those those.things are true you're not considered.permanent and if you go back to work.your tdiu will no longer be a benefit.that you'll receive.great yeah so as Elise went over tdiu is.unfortunately not something that you.know just because you've had it for ten.years doesn't mean it can never be taken.away da does you know check up on things.sometimes so if they've granted you TDI.you based on your inability to work and.then you know five years from now you.start working full-time and you maintain.that position for over a year.unfortunately today you can be taken.away.so please just keep that in mind and as.Elise said probably the easiest way to.know if you are permanent in total is if.you've been granted DEA benefits so.dependents education assistance under.Chapter 35 and that will be usually.pretty clear in your rating decision.that you have that for me that's the.quickest way to tell and if you'd like.to be rated PT you can always.specifically ask to be rated for that as.well just to be really clear let's see.Nick am I missing anything nope that's.exactly right we'll get into it a bit.later but obviously there might be.situations where a veteran can still.work and maintain their tdiu reading but.that really comes down to the specific.type of employment and how much they're.making but like I said we'll talk about.that in just a second yeah and it's.working isn't it the only way that they.might reduce your benefits if you're not.pnt you are required to continue to.submit those 21 4140 forms annually if.you don't submit these forms they can.take your benefits away it could result.in either termination or a reduction.another example might be that if you.have your service connection conditions.have actually improved maybe you're not.working but there's some evidence out.there that shows your situation has.improved that's another way you could.receive some kind of reduction okay all.right great thank you both so let's move.on to our next one okay I cannot work at.all while receiving tdiu benefits Nick I.think you alluded to this previously but.is that true or false fact or myth yep.so this one's false it is a myth there.are certain circumstances in which a.veteran can continue to work and still.be granted entitlement to TDI you.first if a veteran is working in a.marginal capacity meaning that their.employment is considered marginal.because they make less than the.federally established poverty threshold.which is a little over $13,000 a year.nowadays so if a veteran works part time.or full time but makes less than that.$13,000 amount.their employment can be considered.gainful and as a result they can still.be granted tdiu if it's determined that.they're limited to no more than marginal.employment due to their.service-connected conditions however.there are also additional circumstances.where if a veteran makes more than the.poverty threshold they might still be.considered unable to work if their.employments only maintained because it's.what's called a protected work.environment the regulation doesn't.really define what a protected work.environment is it just gives examples.like a family business or a sheltered.workshop but at a most basic level it's.basically a situation where a veteran's.excused from the critical functions of.their job they're less productive than.other employees they're less reliable.and they might not be penalized for.certain behavioral issues or mistakes.that might get a traditional employee.fired and as a result the veteran might.still be paid the same or a similar.amount as other employees despite these.protections and that's basically a.recognition on the employers part that.but for those accommodations the veteran.would not be able to work and in those.situations VA should still be granting.the veteran title 2 TDI right okay so I.think just that there are certain ways.where you can work very certain specific.situations where you are able to work.and still receive tdiu benefits marginal.employment so you make under the poverty.threshold or you're in as Nick just.described a protected work environment.meaning that maybe you work in a family.business or something similar where you.are given unreasonable accommodations in.order to complete your job every day so.maybe you are paid you know an average.salary of someone in that position but.you you know you don't really fulfill.all of the roles and tasks that someone.else in that position might be required.to.okay so that is well said at least are.we missing anything I don't think so I.think Nick Nick hit all the points there.all right so just to be clear you very.certain tiny circumstances you can work.while receiving TDI you but it is.typically if you are getting TDI you it.means you're unable to work due to your.service-connected conditions all right.at least let's move on to the next one.veterans and receipt of TDI you have a.100 VA disability rating 100% d a.disability rating is that true or false.so it is actually a myth you're rated.your you do not have a 100% disability.scheduler rating you'll receive the same.amount of benefits that somebody would.if they had a 100% scheduler rating but.you technically do not have a 100%.scheduler rating that matters in certain.aspects some states for example might.give certain benefits to people who have.scheduler 100 ratings in most most.avenues it might not matter as much but.it's technically it there is a.difference there you're you have ta you.and you are being paid out at 100% but.you do not have a 100% rating okay great.Nick anything on top of that that's it.okay so yeah pretty straightforward as.Elise said you are paid the same amount.so TDI you monthly compensation and a.100% scheduler rating are paid the same.amount every month which is just over.three thousand dollars I believe so they.are similar but they are not the same.however we have clients all the time who.asked us or asked VA for a letter kind.of stating their rating or stating you.know that they're totally disabled and.sometimes that can help in certain.states for tax purposes or different.housing situations so if you are looking.for a letter like that you can SBA for I.forget what they call the letter but.something about your you know benefits.total disability benefits letter and.that could be spelled out for you if.need be but they are technically not the.same just paid the same okay so our last.myth or fact Nick how about this one you.must file a separate claim for tdiu.benefits is that true or false this.one's a myth so as a general rule VA is.required to assume that a veteran is.seeking the highest possible rating for.their conditions off to and including.unemployability benefits and sometimes.even higher benefits what that means is.if the veteran is seeking an increased.rating for an underlying condition and.there's evidence of record suggesting.that they can't work due to that.condition VA is supposed to consider tau.as a reasonably raised issue that that.being said it's better to help VA along.and do what they asked you to do by.submitting the VA form 21 - 89 40.because it provides a lot of information.that might not be included in treatment.records or in the letter that a veteran.might submit and at the end of the day.if the veteran doesn't have any other.claims pending they can submit the 89 40.for them to initiate a claim for tdiu.but that's not supposed to stop ba from.failing to consider it as a part of.what's already pending okay.so technically you don't have to file a.claim for tdiu but as we all know it's.always helpful to get VA that nudge and.just be really clear with them about.what the veteran is asking for why.they're asking for it as you said Nick's.a 940 is extremely detailed it asks you.for you know all of your.service-connected conditions that impact.your ability to work it asks you for.your recent work history when you.stopped working if you've been.hospitalized or seeking treatment it's.really a inclusive form and it gives VA.a really clear idea as to what you were.going through so I would definitely.suggest filling one out just to be extra.clear that you're unable to work due to.your service tactic conditions and that.you're seeking tdiu so although not.necessary it's definitely encouraged in.my opinion absolutely um at least.anything I'm missing there with tdiu.1840's no I think it just goes to show.like sometimes things just aren't always.required but it's always good to help VA.want to help you.right so fill out those forms fill out.the forms that you have to fill out.yearly make sure that you're doing.everything that you can to keep on the.up-and-up with your benefits right and.so that was actually our last myth or.fact that we're gonna go over but this.kind of goes into my final questions for.you guys.anything any big tips for a veteran who.may be seeking entitlement to TDI you.and he and we touched on evidence a.little bit or you know how to treat your.claim or how to treat VA in this process.any kind of last pieces of advice for.someone seeking TDI you.Nick do you want to start right sure I.mean one of the big things that we often.see is making sure that it better and.submits everything that they need to.submit regarding their employment.history the 80 940 form requests the.last five years that a veteran worked on.but oftentimes we might see situations.where a veteran tried to continue.applying for jobs or succeeded in.getting a job but lost that job after.one or two months all that information.is both important for VA to know when.exactly a veteran stops working but at.the same time it can also be useful to.show the fact that the veteran can't.work and their service-connected.conditions affected those failed to work.attempts so it's all relevant.information to include so it's better to.be over-inclusive and what you submit VA.then have something that they might find.out about for some other circumstances.different and kind of in the same theme.of the evidence don't feel like you have.to rely too heavily on your medical.evidence what those VA exam say.sometimes they are sometimes they don't.have a lot of good facts cents to how.something might impact your.employability they might just say oh.well it impacts his ability or her.ability to stand but that's really not.the full picture of it so lay statements.can be very helpful for you it doesn't.have to just be something you're saying.it can be something a co-worker saying.your sister your brother your loved one.they can help paint the picture a little.bit more realistically than just a.couple lines and in an examination can.so don't shy away from those.great advice yeah following up on what.both of you just said BAE is a really.busy Department they have a lot of.claims every day they have a lot of.submissions coming in and out from.veterans and Representatives so they.have a lot going on so I would just say.to be as clear as possible.you know don't hide the ball be honest.submit late statements from your friends.and family like Elise said submit late.statements from yourself do the 89 40.just to be thorough and really let them.know what you're asking these clear as.you can and you know don't assume that.they know what's going on.and don't assume that they will grant.you the highest benefit even though.they're supposed to so definitely ask.for TDI you out right if you are not.able to work do your service-connected.conditions okay any anything else from.your eyes pretty good okay.all right okay well with that said thank.you everyone for tuning in today we hope.that you and your families are staying.safe and healthy and we're thinking of.you during this time our office is open.if you need anything please don't.hesitate to give us a call like I said.we are working remotely so it might you.know it might seem like we're not around.but we are we're here for you please.call us and let us know what we can do.to help you keep watching your hands and.we will see you next time thanks again.you.

Why do ex-employers refuse to fill out the VA form 21-4192 for a vet?

Some do, some don't. Obviously, if you didn't part on good terms it's not likely to happen. If you were a temp or part-time worker they may not have bothered keeping your records. The best thing veterans can do is hand carry the form to their former employer, if practical.

I'm trying to fill out a free fillable tax form. It won't let me click "done with this form" or "efile" which?

It’s can be aggravating! Like Gevin mentioned the “done with this form” button is disabled for form 1040 ONLY. To continue, you have to click the step 2 tab to the right of step 1 . The tab says “E File your tax forms”

How do I make a PDF a fillable form?

How do I fill out the IT-2104 form if I live in NJ?

Do you work only in NY? Married? Kids? If your w-2 shows NY state withholding on your taxes, fill out a non-resident NY tax return which is fairly simple. If it doesn't, you don't fill out NY at all. If it shows out NYC withholding you enter that as well on the same forms. Then you would fill out your NJ returns as well with any withholding for NJ. Make sure to put any taxes paid to other states on your reciprocal states (nj paid, on NY return and vice versa)

How do I fill out a fillable PDF on an iPad?

Try Adobe Acrobat (Adobe Acrobat Reader on the App Store ) or if it's not as easily fillable as you'd hoped it would be, Adobe Fill and Sign (‎App Store: Adobe Fill & Sign )

How do I create a fillable HTML form online that can be downloaded as a PDF? I have made a framework for problem solving and would like to give people access to an online unfilled form that can be filled out and downloaded filled out.

If it's a single-page form, the unprofessional way to download the filled form as PDF is to print on chrome and firefox browsers and save as PDF or you can implement a simple button that does the same thing or download a section of the page if you don't want a section of the page to be downloaded along with the PDF. On the other hand, the best way to handle this is to use a web-based Form builder like Formplus. Formplus is an online and offline data collection tool that allows you to create and customize your forms to your taste. You or/and respondents can get notifications of the filled form as PDF or docx.
