hello,

My name is michelle, aka Chelle--I am retired from the Navy since 2004. I have been extremely fortunate to have been guided to the hadit site shorly after my retirement in 2005 by another veteran who told me that there are very knowledgeable people here at hadit that would see to it that I received the sc disability ratings that I deserve. So, I am a fan of the hadit family b/c when I started my retirement journey I was recieved a total sc rating of 30%. I used the hadit.com site to conduct my research, open my ears and eyes --and THANKS to all of the reliable, accurate information on this site, after writing many letters, going through many comp and pen exams--am now at 90% with TDIU.

I am an avid reader--now since OCT 2009 sc rating of 90% finally able to breathe a little easier (in between my asthma treatments:) and not worry so much. I have empathy for all veterans who are entering or going through the process of winning their VA SC awards and will help anyone I can. Forgive my spelling and rambling--I like many others here have cognitive concentration issues along with PTSD. I would like to say THANK YOU to the hadit family (Berta and T-Bird among everyone in the Hadit. family) for all of your information and encouragement. I am one of your success stories--and reiterate I will help anyone that I can.

Blessings

Chelle

    • 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.
