  • 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

Extremely Dissapointed With The Va

Question

As I said in my other post, I went to my VocRehab meeting on Sept 28th. I did qualify, took the test and that was the last I heard from them, even with repeated emails. My counselor just refuses to answer me. All I have asked her is for an idea of how long the process takes and what are my options regarding work (my job, which is a factory job, is way past unbearable because of my disability). That's it. I don't expect things to happen overnight, but to have some idea of the process would be helpful in planning for certain things.

I even contacted my State's Department of Veterans Affairs to see what I could do in the mean time and they never responded. I am 46 years old and I come from the generation that only knows the VA to be inefficient, unresponsive and uncaring and it seems like it really hasn't changed.

I think you need to have a plan of action. You need to choose the school you want to attend and the degree that you are hoping to achieve and then go to your Voc rehab counselor and make sure they set everything up. When I started my Voc rehab my counselor did not have a clue, so I was very prepared in starting school that very semester and he got it all done fast.

Thanks for the reply Pete.

How long did the process take (from submitting your school information to your counselor to attending the first day)?

If I remember correctly I think it was like 60 days or less since my semester was about to start. It has been years so I may be off a little but if you have a school in mind, you may want to contact them. I finally completed my degree and I can't even use it.

It wasn't too long for me to wait at all for them to do something...after months it was decided this was not the best avenue for me and was transferred to IL. Keep emailing your counselor and keep all emails and replys.

You can appeal any decision or no decision. Ask if you can have someone else for your Councilor.

    • 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.
