  5. Per VA law if you become medicare eligible you have to take part b or lose your Champ VA.
  6. Buck gave you some good advice. If you apply for SSDI and you get denied you have to ask for reconsideration per SSA rules. At that time you are allowed to use an attorney to help with your claim. Now the fun begins. SSA uses a Blue Book or ratings book that has impairments and their severity. That is called listing level impairment. If you need one of these listed in the book you should be granted but it often takes an attorney and MD to put it together. SSDI also uses a five step process to determine your level of disability as it intertwines with the available occupations listed in the Voc Experts book of jobs. My best advice is do not go this alone. Get help.
  7. SDVI waiver of Premium is based on Permanent and Total. The case of a Veteran working or not is moot and should not be a discussion item. VA disability is based on the loss of earnings ability your disability has caused. It is not like SSDI as that is all or nothing. Go ahead and file the paperwork. The Permanent and Total is law. If these people would only do their job and quit confusing veterans about life insurance.

  9. We lost Kurt this month. He was a Friend of Hadit and was the first American to be service connected for his AO exposure from Thailand. To listen: https://www.blogtalkradio.com/haditcom/2019/10/29/tribute-show-for-kurt-preissman-originally-broadcast-in-2010
  10. James here is a thought. The VA has just changed the criteria for heart conditions. The old ones took Ejection fraction into play. Less than 30 was a 100 percent rating. Now it appears the new rating schedule puts the main focus on MET's. Even though there is no accurate test for METS as it is just a doctors guess. I think this one will fail in the courts once it gets pushed through.

  12. I agree with Broncovet. The VA can reduce any veteran except for the ratings protected by the 20 year rule. It really boils down to the type of disability in question. If you are service connected for heart or lung disease for example the VA will have more difficulty because those are progressive issues. The VA must play by its own rules.
  13. Hope you feel better soon.I appreciate everything you and Jerrell do on behalf of veterans.Such a wealth of information derived from your podcast.

  14. Be a little patient. The first thing SSA processes says SSI. It is like they take a loan from SSI to pay your first payment. The reason the judge cancelled is that you have likely won your case.. My only concern is did you have an attorney. If you did, Call and ask them what is going on. The attorneys are the first ones to know. Be checking the old mail box. Basser
  15. Jerrel and I have decided to go on a Hiatus from the podcast. as we get older our health is deteriorating.Hopefully we can improve and return in the future. We want to thank the audience for listening and the guest speakers for their support. The shows will always be available in the archives. I will be a little more active on the forum in the near future. Thanks for everyone's support We appreciate it. John and Jerrel.
