  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Agent Orange - Check This Before Posting Your Question It May Have Already Been Answered

Question

This link didnt work for me Tbird-

maybe just a referral to NVLSP web site would be good?

Agent Orange advocates have done a lot of WORK-

The Agent Orange Equity Act might come to pass-and Kurt Priessman has written an inclusion to the actual regs - that Congressman Filner will be considering.

I helped with 2 parts of it- Nehmer has to be clearly spelled out as to its standing relationship to ALL AO vet claims,and I had a long talk with Rick Spaturo the other day as to Nehmer and all future AO vet claims-(NVLSP never considered the potential inclusion of other AO vets at other locales)

My point is the AO subject is in a fluid situation and we have Never had before this incredible opportunity to get full equity for ALL vets exposed to AO regardless of where.I am grateful to be a small part of this and advocates and vets have been working very hard on it and it sure it a lot of work-

I will respond to any AO questions I see in the regular forum-even if they dont access the info here-

but often have to refer these vets to NVLSP site and the Nehmer order anyhow because AO is an intricate maze of regs and the medical criterias are detailed too in many cases.

Haas too could change everything as well-NVLSP has appealed the Fed Circuit decision in Haas.

GREAT Tbird- alink via Google- this is GREAT!

AO claims are often so complex sometimes (like STS metasized cancer AO claims) and even Ao DIC claims that this is a great idea-a Google link!

Saves me time too because sometimes I spent more time finding and posting links here for questions at hadit

than I have time for any other posts-

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
