  1. HI, Okay quick question and I hope I get some quick advice before its too late. Okay so I put in for an increase in my husband's ihd, and his lungs because he's had terrible residuals since he had radiation for lung cancer. We applied for the caregiver program and was approved but the lady told me that his 100% for his lungs was temporary (which I knew) and that I should be trying to get him increased or made P&T so that his overall average would never go below 70%. So I put it in. Well the rep at the VA went in and said that he was Permanent and Total...yay. So I thought they we
  2. Hi. Any one know if this means back pay or not? Granted compensation issue?
  3. Hello fellow vets, I have a c&p exam next week for right hand pain and arthritis. I am currently SC for: 70% amputation of right index and middle fingers, post mortar explosion. 10% Scars right hand 10% osteo stumps with ankylosis of remaining 2 fingers. 20% right shoulder strain 10% right wrist sprain 10% tinnitus 50% ptsd. I am curious about possible pyramid issues, but would arthritis or carpal tunnel be added to my current hand conditons? Va math will have me at 100% if I get another 30%. Any information would be appreciated!
  4. I am currently 100% TDIU 70% PTSD 20% Back. I am on an ALJ appeal with social security. The judge has made a decision within 2 weeks of my appeal date. what are my chances that the letter is a favorable one. Thanks in advance
  5. If I were to get a job where I was considered a Virtual Employee(with a big company) and Worked from my home. Is that considered a "sheltered environment"? Meaning would I get in trouble for working from home and make more than the poverty threshold? Thank you Scott
  6. Checked Ebenefits today! Finally!!! I have 100% on the circle at the top and checked the letters and it says I am P&T! Thank you all for the help over all of these years! It was a rough ride! Now to fight for the backpay!
  7. OK guys. i have a lot of news to update you all on but i haven't gotten my letters yet so i am waiting on those before i post updates. but looking like i have won to very large claims in my favor that should push me over to 100% schedular. all of my claims are disabilities that obviously will never get better and will only degrade for the rest of my life(osa,tbi,tinnitus,back leg feet issues hearing loss,gerd) so with all that being said i am looking into what my next steps are. i know i am going to be fighting some effective dates on some of my claims and that will be a seperate post. b
  8. Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process! My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status. Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bi
  9. It's been awhile since I've posted. The process took a lot out of me and my health has been pretty bad. My TBI and residuals among other things were service connected and I was awarded SMC T. To all still in the battle, don't give up and keep fighting. Thank you all, it was a long road we traveled together and I appreciate the knowledge base.
  10. Recently awarded 70% for Bipolar Disorder, granted TDIU, proclaimed P&T, with correct claim date determined. I must Thank all of you for keeping my hopes alive over the years, when darkness set in. I must publicly thank Bergmann & Moore, LLC of Bethesda, Maryland, for without their perseverance and capabilities, I would not have had any measure of success. Professional in every way imaginable. I can not say enough about their latest hero, Fatima. Fatima, thanks for being rational, thoughtful, knowledgeable and thorough! Mr. Bergmann and Mr. Moore, you two rock!
  11. Well folks, I finally crossed the goal line that I have been moving the ball toward since I started this adventure in 2010. A few days ago, I saw all kinds of crazy activity on eBenefits and VA.gov as I went to check on my slow shuffle in the BVA line. I had already had my hearing and had several claims granted, and was waiting for the VA to move forward on the granted conditions, or see if they were were going to handle the remaining two remanded conditions that didn't amount to much anyway. I was sitting back with something like 33,000 claims still ahead of me in the slow march, so I
  12. Hi everyone! So I have bipolar disorder, and I've made massive progress in my wellbeing in the last 6 months from diet/exercise and tons of self-help books and a Bipolar Life Skills program. Anyway, I feel great, and have for months and months now, and I feel like I'm ready to go back to school and finish my degree (in psychology) and try to get higher education so I can help other Veterans out of depression (I want to be a psychologist, the Psy.D route). Anyway I'm at 100% right now for my bipolar disorder, and I'm getting re-rated in like 2 years. I have 1 month left on my 9/11 GI B
  13. Hello all I am fairly new to this forum however I get the majority of my insight here Currently I'm rated at 90% overall , out of that my depression is currently rated at 50% , about 6 or 7 more disabilities each rated at between 10-30% as well ranging from back ,feet and hip problems and recently I have submitted my claim for tdiu back in October 2018 and this past Feb 2019 I had my c&p exam and I was wanting to seek feedback based on what my examiner wrote in the notes in the results I've copied and pasted the portion that stuck out to me most Do I have a good chance at
  14. I hope you can help me; not sure what I should do. I was rated Service Connected Disable for PTSD on August 21, 2012 @ 70%. I didn't expect this at all. If anything, I thought I would get a low rating for my physical aliments............(neck, back head shoulder). When I applied in 11/2011, I had been out of work for 3 yrs and was totally distraught,confused and disoriented. Needless to say, I finally got a job in 02/12 and it is no where near what I use to do or the money I use to make. I'd like to know what your advice would be for this: I see where I do have serious social and econo
  15. I have watched for years now our 100% PT Service Connected Disabled Veterans, who served our Country, served her proudly and through no fault of their own, were injured, honorably discharged and unfortunately unable to have the opportunity to committ to a 20 year career and now being passed over and denied again and again, the benefit to be eligible for the DoD's Space A Travel Program while other non uniformed service personnel whom never served, get added into the Eligibility Categories as if they were the cat's meow! It's time to RIGHT THIS WRONG! It's time to stand up and be heard, lis
  16. I was recently awarded 100% disability, and the effective date went back to when I first took a stress test to evaluate my heart problems, 12 months earlier. My question is: while looking at my EKG, both my cardiologist and my primary care provider commented that it showed that I had a heart attack as far back as 2013. Should I file an appeal as to the effective date using the EKG that clearly states " Inferior infarct (cited on or before 10-May-2013)"? I don't want to appear greedy, or "rock the boat", but don't want to walk away from money on the table if it's there. Thanking you in advan
  17. It's official! After 3 years 8 months of fighting the VA. Now at 100% TDIU P&T. Chapter 35 Bennefits will be a nice addition. I look forward to hearing your success stories too fellow Vets.
  18. Can't believe that I'm 100% Permanent and Total. With VA jerking me around for all these years, but without the help from Hadit I wouldn't be here. The fight continues at the BVA level to hold on to what I've got, but now I can rest a little easier. The property Tax Exemption and the free Dependent Tuition is what my injuries deserved and that is what I was pushing for. I've seen Rheumatologist, Podiatrist, Vascular Surgeons, General Doctors, VA Doctors Nurse Practitioners, combined, with hundreds of pages of medical evidence along with buddy statements to help solidify my case. If you look
  19. Hi, I have been awarded 100% P&T by the VA. So i applied for social security, they recently sent me a letter saying that it was approved. But here is where things get tricky, I first filed on 9/27/2017. But on my award letter it only talks about 2016, it also says that my benefits were suspended in 2016... But why? at that point i hadnt even filed for ssdi. here is a timeline of events and my award letter. 02/08/2018 A Decision Has Been Made On Your Appeal Your claim for D
  20. Student Loan Disability Forgiveness for Disability (Changes) Please check out HR1, the new Tax Law just signed by President Trump. It appears, that if you have your student loans forgiven for being permanently disabled, the income tax liability has been removed. An copy of the law from the text of the new law is provided below. I do not claim to be an attorney, so please interpret it for yourself. PART IV—EDUCATION SEC. 11031. TREATMENT OF STUDENT LOANS DISCHARGED ON ACCOUNT OF DEATH OR DISABILITY. (a) In General.—Section 108(f) is amended by adding a
  21. QUESTION: Will/can a 100% TDIU P&T award get removed if my service connected disabilities reach or top 100% ? I ask this because I am +5yr into my appeal process and have received a "partial award" from the VA, as the rest of my appeal moves forward. I was given an increase to 70% TBI to qualify me for 100% TDIU which started last year. Already have 10% Tinnitus. Still on appeal is: MDD -- Arguing for 70% but probably will get 50% Sleep Apnea -- OSA with CPAP required to be rated at 50% My lawyer is inferring that I would be in jeopardy if I try and get +10
  22. I'm currently rated 100% schedular (non P&T) for a single medical condition with a follow up C&P exam scheduled for early 2019. I have no open claims at the moment. My condition is managed through a private doctor. Would it be a good idea for me to send my doctor visit records to the VA so that they can see continued evaluation for the condition? ...Or is it better to wait until the C&P exam and show my documentation to the examiner? Sending the records seemed like a good idea at first, but then I wondered if that's like poking the VA with a stick - maybe they'll decide to
  23. just got 100% IU. Jumped outta too many aircraft and choppers...fast rope incl. im having major back surgery next month opening from T2-L2 with rod and fusion. they just increased back from 10-20%, before any knowledge of all of this.

Thanks for the help and concern.....RLTW
  24. I am so lost and confused in this whole ssdi and va. My DAV rep tries to talk me out of applying for an increase but I told him to anyway and went from 30% for anxiety to 70% PTSD with anxiety. now at 100% schedular. My question is can and/or should I apply for SSDI and what are my chances based on what I have stated already. I have 11 different disabilities due to injuries and surgeries from military service. I continue trying to work but have had to quit 3 jobs due to the stress and disabilities :( I love working but struggle to keep working without causing more pain and hurt on my
  25. I have been on 100% TDIU for several years, and now I am coming up on age 65. I have a basic employee provided health insurance plan through Aetna from my Teachers Retirement System of Texas. This TRS-CARE1 program has informed me that after age 65, that they will become a "secondary payer". If I understand this correctly, what was once an 80/20 plan (TRS-CARE1) now becomes a 20/80 plan. I have a number of questions/concerns in how that works with VA 100% TDIU Disability. The VA has been billing Aetna (TRS-CARE1) for services I receive from the VA (contracted rate, 80%, etc). How doe
