Why should a Veteran accept less than full benefits? I think its a dumb idea.

That sounds like one of those vulture companies that tries to get you to give up your annuity for an immediate payout. My insurance company tried to get me do this by offering me a payout on a life time annuity. I would be giving up 150 thousand bucks over a life time to get 50 thousand now. That to me is a bad deal.

I agree 100% ---- perhaps Filner should willingly give up his salary.

No way should any Veteran accept less than full benefits... It's a dumb idea.

It does sound like a vulture company john999.

I agree with both John999 and VetsLady that no Veteran would accept anything less than full benefits. First off you never know what problems your current disabilities are going to cause you in the future. This from a man who wants to help the veteran just like his Agent Orange Equality Act, introduced it but did nothing.

a vet would have to be crazy to sign this deal as we all know most medical issues get worse over time and to get 30% now at maybe age 25 might sound good but when that issue becomes totally disabling 20-30 years down the road and you can't work anymore they will cram that signed contract down that veterans throat so fast they would be harming themselves and their families to sign off on that type of deal

the sad part is there are many veterans who would do it just to get this claims process over with

Filner should be ashamed of himself

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    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
