  1. This is where some much needed information would be helpful. As in, How many claims for big bucks gets all three signature at the get go, How many get the rater and 1 st supervisor, but not the second signature, And how many get the rater , but no supervisor(s). Without that info, we are all just speculating. Maybe a FOIA request, Hamslice I would find it hard to believe a won claim for over a million dollars does not have some severe adverse scrutiny.
  2. "while the manual allows them to establish P&T status without using this standard" "decision makers did not always explain the reasons why they established P&T status in the rating decisions as required" Regulations written by lawyers, so you have to use a lawyer to win. The two sentences do not compliment each other. The first sentence says I can use whatever or nothing to establish P&T, while the second sentence says I have to explain why I did what I did. Technically, I could say I flipped a coin and awarded P&T, and that would fit both sentences. Hoop jump
  3. Thanks Tbird, I was looking for something like this when I seen your notice last week. I hope to become a patron after the 1st. I too, wish I had know of this site before I became life members of the VFW, AL, AMVETS, TWS, EAGNUS and a couple more I have forgot. I wasted a bunch of money only to be asked to park cars at numinous fund raisers, etc. More to come, Your way, Hamslice
  4. Check your disabilities on Ebenifits, as in the Disabilities tab at the left of the main page. Then at the bottom, see if they show any "pending" disabilities or claims. It may have resolved itself with the 100% P&T. I would not be as worried about the IU forms as much as I would be about a C&P exam. Keep checking the calendar and watch the mail. Never, ever, miss a C&P exam, Hamslice
  5. You and I have had this conversation before; My view has not changed, Hamslice
  6. Find your local CVSO, (County Veterans Service Officer). He/she usually has an office in the County Court House. If you have lived in that county your whole life or most of it, they probably have a file on you already. Ask them which VSO they would recommend. They have first hand knowledge of who works best in their county. All of the Service Organizations have VSO's that can help you or your CVSO will route your claim through them. I have actually never met or corresponded with my VSO, Veterans of Foreign Wars, VFW, but that is who is my POA, and my local CVSO sends my cla
  7. 90% rating is a bitch... Just sayin, Hamslice
  8. However, There is a time limit to file for SSDI, from the last time you worked. 5 years. And they don't waiver that one. Hamslice
  9. OK, now it makes more sense. Except, you must have committed a crime to be indicted. Whether you knew you were indicted or that there was a felony warrant makes no sense. Did you think the court would just forget about you if you waited them out? What type of crime did you commit and think you were scot-free? As always, there is more to the story, Just sayin, Hamslice We convict people all the time for drunk driving from other states that never show for court. Any reasonable person would know if they got stopped in WI again, they would be held, etc.
  10. You can be "wanted" (but not active) in one place and incarcerated in another at the same time. Counties, States, etc. do this all the time. We had a guy we wanted for shooting a local during a robbery, and after finding him in prison in another state, we waited one month short of 7 years, statute of limitations, before we charged him. I.e., we let the other state pay for his incarceration for the first 7 years of his now 14 year sentence. All comes down to money, Hamslice In this case, I believe its the, incarceration, not the felony warrant, that's his problem. I think you
  11. Buck, I will agree with you on the 80% and 90% Veterans. I am at 90% and now need a 50% disability to get to 100%. Which doesn't make much sense when a newly disabled Veteran is rated 50%, as in, lost half his ability to work, etc. With that said, I would have to lose half of my abilities, I have left, to get to 100%. Not sure how that works in the real world. I think it should be real hard to get to 50%, than from there, easier to get to 100%, as more disabilities are than contributing to your whole dysfunction. LOL, Hamslice
  12. Ah, the famous Ebenifits jump jump jump. It tells you someone is looking at your claim today. I have had it go both ways. Finalized, and believe it or not, back to Gathering Evidence. The good news is, back to Gathering Evidence, this time should be relatively shorter, less than a week. Looking for someone to clarify if its a 2 or a Z. LOL. I think your going to get a letter in the mail soon, Hamslice
  13. "The VA Needs to change this either let both veterans work or neither, one of the two , but just let a 100 % scheduler veteran work its simply is not fair (jmo)" Buck, I have to respectfully disagree. TDIU, is getting full benefits because you can't work and don't meet the requirements for total disability. 100% scheduler has nothing to do with work, it has to do with disabilities. The VA compensates us for losing the ability to perform certain activities because of disabilities. An simple example would be a 200% (scheduler) rated quadriplegic Combat Veteran, that can m
  14. The conundrum is 100% scheduler, VS, TDIU, which is what you are probably alluding too. 100% scheduler is a disability or disabilities that represent a percentage of a whole person, and has nothing to do with needing A&A, but could. So, you can be 100% scheduler and work. However, if you are TDIU, you are not supposed to work. I think your question has some validity, however, you would need evidence to support it. You would need an employer that would support all your home A&A requirements that granted your A&A. And I would think that if you go VA A&A, you pro
