  • 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

I have a VSO, and rely on her to make sure no deadlines pass and often contact her... I still don't know why I only got an SOC for 3 and not the other 3, no one knows.. and since the dro isn't telling anyone anything.. there isn't much I can do.. 8 months has gone by..

in another thread I posted that I sent a letter requesting my case docket be moved up due to life threatening chronic illness. Let's see if that helps.. but of course finding out might take a while longer... everyoneis dragging their ass... I could rant here, but won't help you guys any..

retiredat 44:

I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS WITH OAKLAND RO. AT LEAST YOU HAVE HAD A DRO HEARING AND YOUR SOC SUPPLIED TO YOU SO THAT YOU CAN ADVANCE YOUR APPEAL FUTHER IF YOU DECIDE TO DO SO.(DONT LET THE CLOCK RUN OUT ON THE REMAINING 3 ISSUES). I SENT MY NOD ON MY DENIAL OF SEPT.10,2010 ON SEPT. 16, 2010 AND AS OF TODAY AFTER REPEATED REQUESTS HAVE NOT RECIEVED( NADA) NOTHING. SO LAST WEEK I CALLED THE OIG IN WASHINGTON, DC. TO FILE AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT AND WAS TOLD THAT AS OF FEB.2011 OAKLAND RO HAD 6480 CLAIMS ON APPEAL. I WAS ALSO GIVEN THE DIRECT FAX NUMBER TO THE VETERAN SERVICE CENTER MANAGER AT OAKLAND RO WHERE I FAXED AND MAILED FORM 21-4138 DIRECTLY STATING MY INTENT TO FILE A " WRIT OF MANADUMS" FOR FAILURE OF "DUE PROCESS PREMISED ON UNTIMELY DELAYS". IF NO REPLY IN 30DAYS I WILL FILE THAT WRIT. I MIGHT NOT SUCEED ON GETTING THAT ORDER BUT AT THIS POINT I FEEL I HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AS IN 7 WEEKS MY 1 YEAR ROLLS AROUND (SEPT.16 2011). HANG IN THERE BROTHER ,WE MUST CONTINUE THIS FIGHT FOR ALL VETERANS.

San Diego Regional Office This topic was created to try to help veterans who use this regional office. It is designed to offer a way for them to possibly help each other or band together to possib

My claim is at the Los Angeles Regional Office. My attorney and the DRO had their hearing on October 9th, 2009, almost 22 months ago. 2 months ago my attorney sent a letter to the Service Manager with no response. Today my attorney's office called and said that they have sent a letter to the regional director, he has 30 days to respond, if not, then they plan to send a letter to The Honorable Eric Shenseki, Secretary of the VA.

The Court has asked them to follow the above steps before filing a writ of mandamus.

Happy Trails

I probably should not be repetative here, but i sai dthis in another thread, but the answer fits here too..

my VSO told me, the regional offices are still busy with Agent Orange claims... and they might be done around October 2011. I could rant about it, but it won't do any good.. I am just passing on what i heard today from my vso... and why the regional offices are so frakkin slow..

I just wanted to praise the DAV travel...

DAV travel gives rides to vets and (disabled veterans) to and from their appointments... They are volunteers and get up early and come home late.. they drive long distances, and help many people. They do not get paid. They do it to serve the veteran community. I have no several great drivers who volunteered up to 2 or more days per week, as sometimes they were short of drivers. The drivers must go through a hard physical. Sometimes one or more will pick up slack whent here are not enough drivers. They may do this exra work for weeks and months at a time...

I wanted to give a shout out for al those that have done all the halp in bring my carcass back and forth to my appointments and drive with up to nine passengers in a VA DAV van (not always full, but often).

They put up with mostly good people but not all are nice. They help people in and out , in all weather,, soemtimes starting at 4:30 a.m. and getting home around 2 p.m. other times not as many hours. They can use GPS, the computer, or just know the streets. They sometimes put in up to 10 years, even more.

Thank your DAV travel office staff..

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
