Veteran affairs are likely not to bother you much if you work part-time. Just whenever you're talking to Vet aff let them know you are trying. It helps with your issues. When discussing it with your mental health professional let them know it's helpful but it has to be controlled by you, not a boss.

I interpret as saying it would be nice if CPPD was subtracted from the 20k lol . In that same note I would like for my military pension to be deducted from that 20k lol 👍. The 20k a year I believe is for vets probably in the same scenario I am in .. going house crazy , unable to work fulltime, wants to contribute.I could probably work 1-2 days a week before my issues build up and I am less tolerant. If you believe you are capable of working a fulltime job .. even seasonal I believe vac may have issues. That is my 2 cents.

how would that be better?,  are you saying better if the $12000 was subtracted against the $20000 of earned income, instead of being subtracted from ELB

But if you are only able to work 20 hours per week, you would need to making more than $20/hr, in order to come close to the $20000.
what about income from CPPD, if a veteran was taking in $1000 a month from that source, $12000, since that # would be under $20000, would that have any effect on ELB.?

technically it means that you are not capable of earning 66.6^% of you military pay. So you could work full time, but because of the nature of your condition, say PTSD, you could only take a minimum wage job, very low stress. Seaonal work though, could be very tricky. I guess it would depend on the job. Like I would not say being a deckhand on a fishing boat, would be OK, but say working as a cashier at a amusement park, might not cause any problems. I would discuss it with your case manager, before taking any type of job. Because you don't want to risk losing the IRB, and possibly the CIAS, if you get it, because someone at VAC took exception to you working a specific job, while deemed DEC.

Okay so could someone work full time for say like 3-4 months a year at a seasonal job? Or does it have to a part time job? Just curious because I thought being deemed DEC meant you couldn’t work full time. Thanks

If you are getting IRB,you will be able to earn up to $20000, from employment only. You will still have to claim the money, but there will not be any deductions from the IRB, until you make more than the $20000. Even if you are deemed DEC, it just means that you are limited to earning less than 66.6% of your military salary.

Who exactly is allowed to make extra $20,000? I called vac but I can’t get a solid answer. Does one qualify if they are DEC, getting IRB and CIA? Do we have to report the income? Thanks
