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 at my signature you can see my journey, the good years are the HADIT YEARS. Thanks to everyone that helped me out... FLASHBACK To my first post back in 2013.. WOW, I had no clue I would be here
Hi guys, as the title implies, i have finally received the news that i am 100% P&T no future exams scheduled. I did this without any VSO's or any help other than that of my family writing "buddy statements". I am still involved with my treatment plan, though the depression makes it hard to even do that but i just wanted to say thanks to the people on this forum for all of the help, encouragement, and information. Previously i was at 80% for: left carpal tunnel- 10% Asthma 60% Allergic Rhinitis 10% Cystic Acne (due to jet fumes) 30% My last claimed which i filed on 12/12 and was finalized on 4/4 was for: bipolar 70% Tinnitus 10% For a combined 100% Permanent and Total. It took 7 years, but here we are. This wil definitely help me and me family, actually this will change our lives. I know thats pathetic, but my situation is extremely somber. Thanks guys.
jfrei posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumMy TBI was joined by military doctors in 2008 as being permanent and then was physically fit to deploy in 2009. In 2010 got out wasn't service connected until 2016 so now I suggested to make it permanent and total like my doctors said it was and again in 2012 and 2015. I have all this document so when I go to my exam next Saturday I can show him. With my TBI review and my headaches being review I believe I could be 100% , I am 90% currently I am not requesting TDIU just PT for my TBI so no more exams it has been the same since 2008 in the military doctors have said it is what it is and that it won't get any better, especially my short term memory. I have currently found a temporary job to pay for my pregnant wife's and daughters medical, will working a temporary job effect my exam and possibly achieving 100% PT? And if not will continuing this temp job cause me to lose my PT rating? I know I can't work if I'm TDIU but is that the same as 100% PT?
Based on Ebenefits, they have closed my open claim and awarded me additional ratings. I was already 100% combined; however, when I go to Documents/Records and retrieve a VA benefits summary letter, it shows YES for 'You are considered to be totally and permanently disabled due soley to your service connected disabilities. The commissary letter goes on to say it is permanent and not scheduled for any future exams. Here lies my question......would any of these state unemployable if the VA decision was that I am total, permanent and unemployable? I realize this will be all spelled out when I get the yellow envelope in the mail but thought others with experience might be able to let me know what I should see on these. Thanks!
