  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • 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

Upon Being Awarded 100%

Question

For those that have been fortunate enough to receive 100%, please review the many additional benefits that become available. Specifically I'm referring to dental and eyeglasses. I am surprised to find out how many 100% Vets don't avail themselves of total dental work at their local VA. There are many other benefits, such as educational money for college students etc. You have earned these benefits, so don't feel as though anyone is doing you a favor. Educate yourself on what you justly deserve... and..Welcome Home brothers and sisters.

I don't think you have to be 100% to be entitled to eyeglasses though.

You are entitled to eyeglasses and hearing aides at 10 percent or any service connected eye or ear at 0 percent.

but the majority of us are not SC for eye related issues and in order to get free glasses from the VA you need to be rated 50% so they then treat all but dental issues Category 1 veterans

Test Vet,this is from the VA Q and A.

Any Vet with a service connected condition is eligiblefor eye glasses and hearing aids.

Hearing aids and eyeglasses are listed as “limited” benefits. Under what circumstances do I qualify?

VA medical services include diagnostic audiology and diagnostic and preventive eye care services. VA will provide hearing aids and eyeglasses to Veterans who receive increased pension based on the need for regular aid and attendance or being permanently housebound, receive compensation for a service-connected disability or are former POWs. Otherwise, hearing aids and eyeglasses are provided only in special circumstances, and not for normally occurring hearing or vision loss. For additional information, contact the prosthetic representative of your local VA health care facility.
