    • Wablackwell, Not sure if you have filed yet or not, but the DBQ will definitely trigger the VA to complete a C&P exam.  Its been my experience after filing with documentation from an outside provider I was scheduled within a month or two after submitting the evidence. Along with your DBQ and the letter if you were deployed you should highlight your campaign medals and expeditionary medals on your 214. it wouldn't hurt to have the orders and order your LESs from DFAS showing you were receiving hazardous duty and or hostile fire pay. 
    • This, alllllll correct, YOU never lay aside your Weapons soldier, pick that shit back up and march onward.
    • Just to reitterate, these opinions are based on my own experience. When you have a Claim in, don't file New claims. They would looooove to kick it back "downstairs" for the slightest reason. Keep your Focus on TARGET
    • So, as of now in 50% Scheduler Rated. My Lawyer's Case Manager swears up down left and right that i will receive 70%Sched, 100TDIU and T&P I am only 33 years old. Here's some info: I have been out for 16 years. Grand total of earnings BEFORE TAXES, $116K Averaged out by 16 years, 7,625.50 a year. Only 4 of those 16 years in total did i breach the Poverty Line. 2 years were 0, you know, while i was homeless I have attended and droped out of College 2x I have Vocational Skill training as a Phlebotomist 2 I unfortunately also have drug and assault charges, misdemeanors yes, but hospitals wont even give a "criminal" a interview. So we shall see, Age is not something they are Currently using as a basis for TDIU, but always remember! Every claim no matter what percent should have a "Infered" claim to TDIU, in both Chapters  A) AND B) of the regulations concerning TDIU, so ALWAYS file a NOD upon receiving your Bennies Award Letter!!!
    • Agreed, that was my thoughts also. Thanks for the confirmation.

Cancel Disability Compensation

14 posts in this topic

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)
