  1. HELLO, MY PRIVATE DOCTOR RECENTLY WROTE A PRESCRIPTION FOR WHEEL CHAIR TWO MONTHS AGO. I REQUESTED THE CLOTHING ALLOWANCE PERMANENTLY TO BE AWARDED TO ME THROUGH MY LOCAL VARO. I STILL HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING. ARE OTHER VETERANS HAVING THE SAME DIFFICULTY AS ME IN REGARD TO THIS CLOTHING ALLOWANCE ISSUE. I HEARD THAT REQUEST DOES NOT GO TO THE VARO BUT TO AND ONLY TO THE ORTHOPEDICS CLINIC @ VA HOSPITAL IN MY AREA? SHOULD I RE-SUBMIT 21-4138 OR DO I USE A SPECIAL CLOTHING ALLOWANCE REQUEST SLIP? CAN YOU HELP ME IN THIS MATTER? THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. GRT PS, SAD

  6. I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION FOR THE FORUM. IF A VETERAN HAS ALREADY BEEN RATED FOR CERVICAL AND LUMBAR INJURIES AND HAS ANOTHER SEPERATE 100% SC CAN THE VETERAN RECEIVE SMC IF THE LUMBAR AND CERVICAL ISSUES ARE CAUSING HIM URINARY, BOWEL AND WALKING PROBLEMS IN THAT HE HAS TO RENT A WHEELCHAIR OR WALKER TO GET AROUND ? THNKS GRT
  7. I HAVE A QUESTION ON HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. IF A VETERAN HAS HAD HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AS SECONDARY TO BEING AWARDED CERVICAL AND LUMBAR SERVICE CONNECTION IN OTHER WORDS>>>>>>>> COULD THE VETERAN RECEIVE 100% RATING FOR THE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE SINCE HIS CHRONIC BACK PAIN BOTH CERVCIAL AND LUMBAR PAIN WHICH HE IS SERVICE CONNECTED FOR ALREADY IS CAUSING THE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND HE IS ON HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATIONS ALREADY???? THANK YOU GRT
  8. if a veteran is scheduler 100% P and T and one of his sc's is 100% PTSD can a veteran work and make as much as he wants?? Or if he does work can the VA move to suspend, reduce or take away any SMC or any K awards i know if you have A and A attached to SMC I think i read you cannot work but if you do no have an A and A and just have SMC without an A and A award you can work and make as much as you want could the forum please clarify my question I hear a lot of information but not sure if tis correct. Thk you again Gt
  9. I would like to know after a veteran gets a Bachelors Degree can he still re-apply to voc rehab for graduate school? how long does a veteran have before his voc rehab expires? thx gt
  10. Most of the cases i read @ bva web site end with bva judge saying complete social and occupational impairment veteran is here by awarded 100% PTSD the doctors who comment seem to by pass the anger issues and focus on whether a veteran is able to1 maintain relationships and be 2 able to work in a work type setting when he is not able to then he is awarded 100% but in my opinion i would say the underlying causes for that could be anger and poor behavior or what VA terms as loud out burst of anger or innapproriate behavior i see what your saying i agree thks gt
  11. I have a question for the HADIT Forum. My question is this regarding PTSD if i veteran meets only one of the 38 CFR criteria for 100% rating for PTSD can he be awarded 100% PTSD? Yes or No? If say for instance a veteran meets only the social occupational aspect where by he cannot secure gainful employment due to difficuly in adapting to stressful circumstances (including work like setting); inability to establish and maintain effective relationships, should not the veteran be awarded a 100% PTSD rating?? or does the veteran have to meet more than one of the 3
  12. my question is this If the VA suspends a veterans benefits do they have to send the veteran a letter or do they just go ahead and suspend his benefits in other words if they are going to reduce you have 60 days to respond do you have 60 days to respond before they suspend benefits thx
  13. HERES WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE VA WILL HAVE TO AWARD ME 100% PTSD BASED ON MY SOCIAL SITUATION WHEN THAT HAPPENS BRADLEY V PEAK AND THE OTHER NEW LAWS REGARDING SMC SHOULD KICK IN AND I WILL BE REVIEWED FOR SMC BASED ON MY SMC ISSUES WHICH I WILL HOPEFULLY GRANTED AFTER YOU ARE REMOVED FROM TDIU AND GRANTED 100% P AND T THEIR ARE ONLY CERTAIN CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH YOU ARE GRANTED SMC I FEEL CONFIDENT IN READING ALL THE OTHER POSTS THAT FOLLOW ALONG THE SAME AREAS AS MINE FOR ME ITS NOT A QUESTION OF HOW ITS JUST A MATTER OF WHEN THANKS I CAN SEE WHERE I AM HEADING NOW
  14. the va mis diagnosed me and said i have mood disorder then later down the road they re-classified my mood as PTSD and gave me 70% when in fact based on my not being able to obtain gainfull employment because of my PTSD the va should have given me 100% PTSD THAT DIDNT HAPPEN I GOT 70% PTSD THATS ABOUT TO CHANGE !! now the laws changed once they give me 100% Ptsd they will have to consider smc but going back when i was removed from TDIU and granted 100% P and T (70% PTSD included) the VA should have considered SMC and going back even further if i read the law right when I was placed on TDIU
  15. I was on tdiu then i filed some more claims based on lost records and i told the VA my mood was not mood but PTSD months later without even telling me brown envelope comes in the mail and it brown envelope does not say hi hello you are kicked off tdiu it drabbles on in the VA mumbo jumbo legal dictum so i had to call DAV and they told me I was removed from TDIU granted 100% P and T and my mood was re-classified as PTSD but only at 70% because during that time frame VA put a directive out to all VARO's NO MORE 100% PTSD because VA started to see a spike in 100% PTSD awards friend of mine
  16. I am currently 70% for PTSD my question is this If one of the requirements is met for 100% PTSD ----- I E ---- 1889 38 CFR 4.16 a mental disorder precludes a veteran from securing or following a substantially gainfull occupation the mental disorder shall be assigned a 100 % evaluation under the appropriate diagnostic code their fore since i cannot secure a substantially gainfull occupation because of my PTSD my 70% PTSD should be moved to 100% PTSD. I don't believe all the requirements have to be met to get 100% for PTSD whats your opinion on this matter any comments
  17. i have quick question i am currently 100% P and T if approved how much would i get permonth for A and A thanks
  18. I would like to know about the white envelop vs brown envelope every time i get an envelop from VA good or bad its always brown i see posts on the white and brown whats the differance? thks gt
  19. My doctor has prescribed wheel chair for me my doctor has precribed leg brace for me i kept sending in the copies of the RX to the VA VA has not answered me on the clothing allowance i guess that will come up at the BVA hearing since i will be appearing in abstentia my lawyer will be their any thoughts?? i guess if you have a BVA hearing everything stops on your pending claim and the VA just waits until the BVA makes a decision thks gt
  20. i was on tdiu i continued to file for other sc those sc were granted and at that point my mood disorder was re-classidfied as ptsd 70% then after that i was removed from tdiu and granted 100% P and T i am currently filing for smc and housebound my question is this since i have total occupational impairment from my scs should the va move my 70% ptsd to 100%???? also would like to know if i am granted 100% ptsd can i work if possible?? thank you for your help
  21. my question is since the va said we are reclassifying your mood to ptsd and we are moving your 50 % mood to 70% ptsd if i am awarded 100% ptsd will that count towards my request to be considered for smc???????????? my reasoning is because 100 P and T or 100% tdiu cant be used for smc unless you have 1 sc rated 100% now my next question for ptsd i am at 70% PTSD currently in my 214138 i stated to the VA and to my lawyer that my PTSD should be granted at 100% level because in march of 1989 38 CFR was amended to add subsection c stating in cases in which the only compen
