  • 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

Va Sux..nothing New

Question

I know everyone here is sick of the unjust treatment of vets. It just blows my mind how the military just uses you up and then when you develop problems from things that happen to you in the line of duty, they toss you aside with little assistance. I'm tired of fighting the VA just to get money to get by on. I have PTSD that was diagnosed when I was on active duty. I haven't been able to work for almost 2 years now, because it is difficult for me to even be around people. I see a therapist twice a month currently. I filed a claim for disability from the va over a year ago. Of course they low balled me at 30%. I currently have an appeal pending, and i'm waiting to hear from them again. Hopefully they will be more merciful in their decision this time around, but who knows? I've been reading this PTSD forum and it seems like alot of folks are getting 30% disability rating at the beginning. Don't you just love how they throw you a tiny bone and expect you to be satisfied with it???

Welcome brother, the VA threw me a tiny bone too.

they were like "here fetch boy" "here fetch boy".

I didn't fall for it though. I threw it back with an appeal.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
