  1. Hi Buck52.

    wondering if you can advise? I’m presently at 100% metastatic prostrate cancer, still going through treatment, which my last another 5 months. This was awarded as blue water agent orange. In the last week I have been diagnosed with kidney cancer and my kidney must be removed ASAP. This I’ve noticed is on the presumptive condition for water contamination while stationed at camp Lejeune. How do I do this in filing a claim, with one already being paid. American Legions here are closed most of the time so getting help from them is difficult. Thanks

      In that case, probably just make a statement that because of his ongoing health issues from the contaminated water at Camp LeJeune etc, his health is not good. They don't have to react to it, but they are human and it may make a difference in moving it along.

      I would suggest that the expedite due to the advance stages of cancer and age.

      I would suggest that Aviationtech ask them to expedite the claim because of critical condition also.

      Taylor I'm not going to address SMC's; way beyond my paygrade. But I will remind you that it is way too complicated a claim to put much faith in what is or isn't in ebenefits. You've waited a long time and, unfortunately, you'll need to wait longer. Wait for your decision lette/BBE.

      carfixer208 You are welcome here. Keep reading, educate yourself , go to referenced materials that members post, and you will know when it's a good time to add your comments to the dialog. Remember, no religion, no politics and be respectful of others. Maybe start out by only addressing those disability issues that you have some personal experience with. Start by updating your profile a little; disabilities, interests, where you live, that kind of thing. Being  a little thick skinned helps; sometimes someone will disagree with you and maybe doesn't do it nicely. Sometimes, we all have a bad day. (Spelling or grammar isn't graded. Thankfully.)But I guarrantee  you'll be appreciated.Again, we are glad to have you.

  7. The difference between veterans who need help,  and are willing to help themselves, and veterans who just want help without doing what it takes to help themselves, is the difference between getting 100% and getting 0%.

      Allan I'll agree with you up to a point. But there are a lot of veterans out there that have disabilities that should be s-c but they are just not capable of managing the process. Their memory is gone, or just too feeble to get to someone to help them. They don't have an advocate to help; maybe is financial, or transportation. I've helped a few in nursing homes; found out how to contact a family member so they know help is possible. But unfortunately, many just are too lazy to do anything to help themselves. I tell these veterans how to do and what to do and who to see, etc. Then I tell them if you don't do what I have advised within 48 hours, you won't do it at all. Sad part is, most don't follow thru. As we say all the time, you the veteran are your best advocate. If you don't care, why the hell should anybody else?

  8. DAV rep put in claim for hearing increase and 100% temporary hospitalization? Not sure why he did it that way but the claim status on eBennies says it's closed. Under disabilities they increase hearing loss from 0% to 30%, brown envelope is on it's way. I was previously 90% scheduler and 100% TPIU. Now scheduler is 94% with the addition increase of 30% but of course that rounds down to 90% scheduler. I am not sure why but it appears on eBennies they dropped my TPIU (unemployable)???? OMG please tell me that is not so, that's about $1,000 less in benefits, spouse loses her health coverage (Champus)... I'm scare to open the envelope when it arrives. What about scars? I had a CABG with left me with a approximately 9” scar down the middle of my chest where they cracked me open (I jokingly call that my zipper). Is that rateable?  This stress is killing me!!!! My wife is under going treatments for breast cancer, NOT a good time to lose her health coverage.

      X020574 I would wait to see your BBE; should be quick. You need to see what it says. If they took away TDIU, you need to see why, and you need to appeal it. Post what the decision letter says here when you get it; be sure not to have your personal ID stuff on it, like name, ssn, address, etc.It's not a done deal yet. Yes the scar is rateable, probably, as it is long enough but other considerations are how wide, is is sensitive, deep, how wide, does it effect movement, unstable, etc. See diagnostic code 7801 thru 7805 for more info. Run the rate calculator and plug in each of your individual ratings, plus, based on what your scar symptoms are, plug in your estimate on what your scar might be, say 10%. That might get you to 95%, which rounds up to 100% schedular. If it does, that is an additional option for you. Post the letter.
