  • 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

Question

I recently went to my first VA appt after retireing from the Army, the appt was to get me in the system and for me to meet my new doctor. After the appt my doctor stated if there is nothing else she will see me next year (June 12, 2012), do I have anything to worry about as far as my comp. being reduced based on this appt and is this how VA treat all Vets?

No big deal.

This is just SOP.

If you get pills they should see you at least twice a year for blood work. When I started to go to the VA psychiatrist it was once a month. Then it was once every two months, and now I am lucky to see him once every three months. Is this therapy? No just med check. The doctor says I am stable. If they ever call me in for an exam I am going to be very unstable.

Thanks for the great advice. I recently had a friend who had an appt and he went in and told them he felt great, I told him that he just screwed himself and that he should never tell VA he is doing great. Not that he should lie, I think you should always tell them how you feel on your worse day, for me my worse day just so happen to be every other day.

When I see the VA or any other doctor I like to do something such as Play Golf or push a mower the day before, something simple as that will have me bent over in pain... I want the Docs to OBSERVE me ON MY WORSE DAY...

Sounds like a regular PCP (primary care doc) annual check-up. You posted that you are 100%. Is your disability stable? Do you have any other regular appointments with different specialists or doctors?

Best wishes,

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
