  • 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

Tracking Houston Va Process For My Ao/ihd Claim


I first filed a claim for AO/IHD back in 2008 and it was denied in 2009. Refiled in April 2010 at the Houston VA.

So this puts me in the Nehmer class with a EP of 681.

The claim sits there in Houston from April 2010. While it sits there with no action, it also stalls my local appeals.

I have been waiting since Feb 10,2009 for a local hearing and a DRO review for my oldest NOD.

Houston finally schedules a QTC stress test which is cancelled the first time then rescheduled first without telling me and finally getting it right the third time.

I submit to the stress test in August, 2010.


everything just sits there until Congress finally opens the floodgates on Nov1, 2010. But wait a minute...Houston continues to sit on my claim until Jan, 2011 and they finally send my claim to Waco to the Nehmer team.

I don't know why it took them 4 months to send it to Waco for Nehmer review, but it did.

Since my Cfile is now in Waco, my local appeals have to wait for the Cfile to return.

Waco states that they received it Jan 28, 2011 and promptly put it in the development mode

I called today and was lucky that the call center person stated a letter was sent out to me today and she read it for me. It was the stupid VA letter requesting more info.

She replied to it for me to send it to the rating as there was no new info I wanted to send in.

So now unless there are any more delays the VA can dream up then maybe I can get a rating decision on this issue.

Now I don't know how the other VARO's are handling this issue, but I have to say that Houston is by far one of the worst run federal institutions

that I have ever encountered in my 62 year life.

I only hope that there is enough retro in this decision for me to pack up and move out of this state. I want to transfer myself and household to Henderson, NV. I will happily wait for the VA there to give me my local appeals.

    • 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.
