  • 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

What More Can I Do?

Question

We put in for TBI... a year later, DENIED. What for? No relation to the military. We sent in documents from the Military Dr. who said he had TBI when my husband came back from Iraq. We sent in letters from those who knew about the 70 mph crash from explosion as proof and came to the rescue. We would send in a letter from those who were in the Humvee with him... but alas most of them either didn't make it back from Iraq, committed suicide, or just disappeared from everyones radar... even family. RIP :D

The VA seems to be hung up on the fact that he didn't go to a Dr. and have it recorded after the accident. Hello, unless it is a life or death you don't get medical care.... even if you were knocked unconscious.

My dear husband, whom we will call evilerny, has been referred to the TBI special program to get help, by one of their very own VA doctors. The TBI clinic say indubitably he has TBI. He was sent to the neurologist as one of his C&P and finally received the results... after we were already denied. The Nero Dr said that their was definitely scar tissue and that evilerny should go to the TBI clinic... yeah we have already been there.

So here is the catch, our denial letter states the reason for denial is for lack of proof... but yet on the pages to follow where they explain why, they say in so many words that according to the C&P they don't believe he has it anyway. Hmmmm????

We have given pictures, letters, things different from before and after. medical documents from after he came back from Iraq. So I digress, What more can we do?

Is your denial from the VARO or BVA? Have you filed a NOD?

evilerny,

Can you scan in and upload the Rating Decision, minus info like real name, address, SSA number ?

What is his current 50 percent SC for.

Did you check out the Evidence Section of the Rating Decision to make sure all of the

Evidence was of record in the Rating Decision. Especially things like pictures ?

30% PTSD; 10% headahs; 10% back injury. I will have to get the paperwork out. I may have to type it up. As of right now I only have access to my iPhone for Internet. So it might be next week that I can get it up here

the conformation was not in that paperwork but we had recieved a letter several months prior to the denial letter. It stated that they had recieved all our info and had it all listed and it was submitted to the reveiw board.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
