    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

Permanent And Total


Question

I called the 800# today to request a new statement showing Permanent and Total. I was told P/T is not in their records. I have had these statements before under my maiden name for 10 years. When I married in 2007 I sent in all the paperwork etc. My husband is on ChampVA and I got my ID card with my new name. My husband has an ID card. I get Tax exempt on my home here in Florida. This scares me. I usually write for any request to St. Petersburg. Today I used the phone and their info differs. They insisted I was not permanent. I did not want to argue and told the rep. that.

I faxed. St. Pete( processing center gave me the wrong fax# too). Not a good day. I sent them my last P/T statement received and a copy of my military ID card showing permanent That the VA authorized. I asked that they straighten out the processing center. I mailed the same info and I sent a message via the VA web site. I covered all my bases. I just get scared when my benifts are messed with. I am just venting...Did I do all that I can do???

Send it in an IRIS inquiry. The 800 number you called was a regional call center where they have 2 minutes to get you off the phone.

If they persist, send them a copy of a later letter or tell them to look at your award letter.

Thanks Jbasser . I did send in an IRIS message today through the VA web site. What scare me is they will agree with the processing center even though I have the paperwork showing P/T. That may be silly but no one know what the other one is doing any more(it seems). I do not think I would have all these benifts if someone did not know or agree I was P/T. I do not want them to tell me all this info I have been told/given is a mistake and my benifts taken away after 10 years. Times are too bad now to have lost benifits.

I'm sorry, but I'm sitting here wondering why you are requesting a NEW letter/statement from the VA attesting to the fact that you are P&T?

What I mean is, ONE letter should be enough. After all, being PERMANENT and Total, is PERMANENT, so should the letter that you ALREADY have.

Mine is dated for some reason. The one I have has my maiden name and I need one with my married name. I thought I saved a copy when applying for ChampVa for my husband and ID cards etc. I only can find the one with my former name. It is dated.

I have been asked on many occasions from the county etc. to get a more recent dated statement of disablity from the VA.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,
