    • Hello Fat,  Thanks for the reply.  I'm asking for people's opinions on this matter out of curiosity. Nothing else.  
    • Just a side on SSDI retro. My cousin went blind last year and applied for SSDI. He got his benefit last fall, but no retro pay. He was told that he was in the first group to not get retro SSDI. 
    • THANK YOU Andyman! They give us a tracking number but it is easier to just pop our name into their search feature at the top to make sure our comment pops up. You just click on View all comments, and in Search feature click on New search within this document and your commenter name will pop up with your comment. I have not found any of the vet lawyer's comments yet but one other hadit member has commented too. A VA anesthesiologist made the point that there is no lack of qualified anesthesiologists in the VA. This could change the VA in many many ways. I am not even sure if the nurses ,like the VA docs, dont have to carry malpractice insurance, and how it would work out if a VA APRN makes a critical medical error with a patient. There is the NPDB mandate as well...and the VA's reporting requirements of doctors who have caused FTCA awards. Will that apply to these nurses too? I have nothing against nurses and known many who are superb at their work. Still, as many commenters (vets and/or their family members said) you all earned the best medical care the VA has to give. Maybe this change will ensure the best care. But maybe it wont in every case. And how much weight will the VA give to APRNs in the claims process?        
    • Let the medical facts speak for themselves. Don't develop another mental heath issue (anxiety) trying to anticipate. Rating Officers are supposed to evaluate medical evidence, nothing else. Relax, it will work in your favor.

Dic Decrease?

4 posts in this topic

i would appreciate your thoughts on my question.

if a person already receives dic and/or social security disability retirement can the monthly check amount be reduced or stopped if the government doesn't reach an agreement (i believe by august 2, 2011) or in the agreement they put together?

thank you very much for your answers.

No one really knows right now. Keep current on the news about the possible shut down.

FYI our SSDI/VA compensation weren't interrupted last time, but this is a very different situation!
