  • 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

Still Waiting- A Time Line

Question

Hello to All,

Just updating for those waiting like me. I filed my claim in Nov 2009 for anxiety, IT band syndrome, and depression. I had a C&P in July 2010. In early Nov 2010 ebenefits shows my claim is at the Decision level phase. So it has been a month at that stage and I'm still waiting. Nothing has happened and I do not know how long it takes at this stage. I am amazed at how some people get a decision within a few months and others wait years. It is a mystery beyond understanding.

If you obtained a copy of the C & P results -that can give you a possible heads up on the decision.

They only rate on one mental health issue.

I called the 800# today and a snotty rep told me "you know, there are over 1 million new claims, you will just have to wait your turn", anything else I can help you with. I guess she told me! Ps-my claim has been with the rating board for over 30 days now. I guess all the agent orange claims are killing them-and of course they go to the head of the line.

Berta - I called the 800 number about a month ago and requested a copy of my claims folder. I'm waiting for that as well. I assume that my c&p results will be in that.

Also it seems to me that PTSD claims were streamlined due to them being a political hot topic over the past year, maybe that is all of the claims coming to the forefront.

Wow - I'm embarrassed for all government employees. I know the rep was probably stressed, but that was uncalled for. Also, you're better off submitting an IRIS request/question. No guarantee that the response will be any better, but IRIS is in writing, and you would think the DVA has to try to be somewhat more accurate. I avoid using the 800#. With your condition though, it’s hard to resist trying to get instant results and info. As I've read in other posts, find a hobby, do some fishing, volunteer if you can, but find anything to keep your mind off the claim. Please don't torture yourself; a decision will come. Maybe you could set a date each month to check status? It works for me - keeps me from obsessing about the claim and appeal in the pipeline.

Hi all! I have a claim in at the St.Petersburg RO that has been at the rating board since 10/06/10. I was told that I am in a long line before my claim is rated, this is very frustating but all I can do is wait. Unbeleiveable!

    • 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.
