This C&P doctor (or any other doctor, for that matter) needs to state that you have "lost the use of" your hand/arm to the point that it would work just as well if they whacked off your hand/arm and replaced it with a prothesis. That your hand/arm is as useless as if you had a prothesis. They must be willing to state that you have effectively lost the use of....whatever it is that you've lost the use of......

I'm workin' on them giving me smc for the loss of use of my mind..... :angry: ......HEY, don't knock it and don't laugh......I haven't found it since I got up this mornin' and here it is 9AM!

but my position is the arthritis is so bad and bone issue is complicated as well i am arguing that the hand arm is no good

found out something else to day good news to really just pleasant joyfull news

i have 2 life insurance policies both for 10,000 for a total of 20,000 when and if i die one is free the other the premiums

come out of my 2 500 disablity

VA insurance tells me even if i get a schedular 100% if i go back to work they will take i think the one for free away is what the kind VA lady said to me

my asbestosis claim oh man yes you have asbestosis but no intastatial lung disease Dr Bash says yes i do and VA radiology said yes you have pleural plaques

NATURALLY THE C AND P DOCTOR SAYS YES YOU HAVE ASBESTOSIS BUT NO YOU DON'T HUM WOW OKAY DONT EVEN GO THEIR IM NOT GOING TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THAT SUBJECT

now that wouldnt be from all the pipe lagging the navy had me remove while i was in 1st division hum something dont sound right here oh well food for thought maybe McPain can address that issue at his next convention?

wow aint life grand learn something new every day whadda ya think???

i might add Great Benefit Insurance Comapny in the movie the rainmaker reminds me of the VA VAROS and the way they handle claims for veterans John Voight played Leo Drummond to a T reminds me of the whole VA system the music in the begining is the kind of music you here at most VA hospitals in the foyers or elevators which always seem to be broken or always going down

hum something dont sound right here

Trez has said that he is 70% with TDIU, and he has said that he is 90% with TDIU. Trez has also said that he got a four year degree under Voc-Rehab, and that he still has two years of Voc-Rehab left. The problem with that statement is that Voc-Rehab is a four year (maximum) program. Once you have finished with training, and became employed, they usually write you a nice letter telling you that you have completed the program. Trez seems to be saying a lot of contradictory things. Trez needs to figure out his exact disability rating, and where he exactly stands within the VA programs before members here begin to think he is a fraud and stop answering his questions or helping him in any other way.

My thoughts exactly. I followed his posts but got just as confused with the contradicting information. :unsure::lol:

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

  • 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
