    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

Ptsd 70%

Question

I am a female veteran who is in need of some informaiton, I am an OEF/OIF veteran who just got an increase from 50% ptsd, anxiety and major depressive disorder to 70%. I work at the VA as a clerk. I was working in a surgery clinic then they changed my post and put me in the outpatient mental health clinic (also the ptsd clinic). I explained to my supervisor if I should be working there since I had ptsd. He stated "why not" and i worked there for a year being crused at, verbally abused and harrassed by patients everyday. I told my chief that my condition is worse due to my job, she did not move me and I stayed there. After many incidents they decided to move me. I took one month off after having a breakdown and going to the ER. When I returned they placed me in a different clinic (HIV

Welcome to Hadit. Sorry that the VA is not helping you more and it is also sad that patients would curse you or be mad at you. I always try to be polite to staff and have found that being nice helps me as well as the people I deal with at VA.

Please write more but I really do not have much to offer except that if you are in Union you should tell your Rep what is going on.

If you have any more problems I suggest you write a Request for Accommodation and send it to the VAMC Director.

Keep copy and send it with proof of mailing.

The VA will probably not act on it and if they dont-you would have basis for EEOC complaint.

Then again they might well make sure they do something to help you.

As a federal contractor the VA comes under laws to accommodate veterans with disabilities who are also employees.

My husband made VA employee accommodation request and his VA shrink supported it.However the VA did nothing at all to accommodate his disability of PTSD.(30%)

He used that fact and filed EEOC complaint against them.

During this same time frame his college (he was Voc rehab too) did all they could to honor his need for accomodations.

All of above became evidence for his 100% PTSD award.By getting your situation well documented it will support an eventual TDIU award if you can no longer work due to SC.

Have you formally applied for another VA position?

Do you have copies of all of your personnel records to include performance appraisals?

    • 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.
