  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Something Is About To Change?


Is it just me? It seems like Ebenefits has been unstable, off and on, partly operational.

Makes me feel like something BIG is about to happen. No evidence, just a gut feeling I have.

I think I know what it is but, if I say it I'll jinx it.

Anyone else feeling it?

I think they are going to fast track all the FDC claims (they can) using a low award to move us into Appeal.

Politics of this is not looking good for them.

There will be alot of claims that will need more 'Evidence' or other info that will have to move slower. There is nothing preventing them from changing policy based on demand and load. All this is just a gut feeling, it may be someting else, or just re-fried beans causing my gut to talk.

well I dont think thier objective is to move claims into appeals, thier objective with the fdc claims is to get that first time claim filer, who doesnt know any better, and has trust in the system, because he or she just came off active duty, where they could pretty much believe they were in pretty good hands. The va knows that the mindset of young soldiers is to " suck it up and drive on"

Once recvieving thier denial letter, or lowballed rating, a large portion of the claimants will just take what they were given and move on. If anything they are trying to kille 2 birds with one stone, because if they can convince the young soldier,. that they submitted a fully devloped claim, that doesnt leave much else to do. MOST VETERANS DONT KNOW HOW THE PROCESS WORKS, !

thats what they take advantage of,

Just like the big promise from underdeskratary Hinkey, she promise that she would help the soldiers out by letting us file PROVISIONAL CLAIMS. These were supposed to be fast claims,. that put some money in veterans pockets, gave them access to healthcare, stop the suicides, stop, the poverty. stop the suffering. Then later the va would relook at the claims and correct any mistakes. Well the research ive done, says less than 5 percent of the claims proccessed after she promised them, were provisional claims. The pressure is on the va, and they are grasping for straws, trying to make the numbers look more favorable. If the veteran suffers at the hand of thier claims manipulations they could care less.

At least we don't live in Egypt along the De Nile River.

There isn't anything Vet Friendly about this game.

When you add Politics to anything you always come out with Crap. Unfortunately I understand Politics better than I ever did. Unless you contribute to a campain you have no real voice.

VA+ Politics= ????

Hopefully there are a few real people employed with the VA that have not been run off or forced out. That is who is overworked, underpaid and stressed out.

      Claims Process – Your claim can go from any step to back a step depending on the specifics of the claim, so you may go from Pending Decision Approval back to Review of Evidence. Ebenefits status is helpful but not definitive. Continue Reading

    • I was rated at 10% for tinnitus last year by the VA. I went to my private doctor yesterday and I described to him the problems that I have been having with my sense of balance. Any sudden movement of my head or movement while sitting in my desk chair causes me to lose my balance and become nauseous. Also when seeing TV if there are certain scenes,such as movement across or up and down the screen my balance is affected. The doctor said that what is causing the problem is Meniere's Disease. Does any know if this could be secondary to tinnitus and if it would be rated separately from the tinnitus? If I am already rated at 10% for tinnitus and I could filed for Meniere's does any one know what it might be rated at? Thanks for your help. 68mustang

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67. 
    • If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.
