I had to quit my job due to a service connected disability which involved a total shoulder replacement on my primary arm , there was no way that my employer would fire a disabled veteran even if I could not perform the necessary duties for fear of pitch forks and torches at the gate. I was limited on clothing (shorts and T-shirt ) and they knew I would not last long due to weather and decided to wait me out knowing that I could not do the job due to severe pain and upcoming cold weather. My question is , can I still qualify for IU ? I have the necessary ratings and I am at temp 100% for one year but will resume to 90% next year. My VSO told me if I quit , I will not be eligible for IU. I called the VA 1-800 number and spoke with a VA representative who told me that I do qualify for IU based on the direct service connected disability and having to quit, I would appreciate any persons input that is in the same situation and or was either awarded IU and or was turned down. Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your service.
