  • 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

C & P Exam

Question

I found this board a couple of weeks ago and have been reading posts and learning. I would not have known I could get a copy of my C & P if not for this board, so thanks to everyone. I was in service in 1971 & 72. I was discharged for anxiety and panic attacks. I started soc. sec. for this about 5 years ago. My question is I just got a copy of my C & P today and it says "I do not believe his psychiatric disability pre-existed his military service. It is as least as likely as not that it is related to an incident or incidents of service.

Is this good.

Thanks

Welcome to Hadit. I am service connected for Panic Disorder and was awarded SSD for panic in 1991. Because the attacks were documented in my Service Medical Records I eventually got service connection at 100% P&T.

A good medical opinion that opines that you had panic disorder while you served should do the trick.

Good Luck

I was medically discharged for this, but denied disability in 1975 because they tried to say it was pre-existing. Never had C & P until now, because in 1975 when they set me up for an evaluation I panicked and didn't go.

The opinion you got was a good one but I am concerned about the 1975 decision. You may possibly have a CUE claim from 75. Do you still have that decision?

It wont be easy but you may be entitled to a crapload of retro, Are you an in country RVN vet?

I just didn't go for the c & p in 1975. They said because I didn't show up I was denied and they said they sent me a denial letter, but I don't remember getting one and there was no other correspondance from them. When I was in Washington DC for my BVA hearing my lawyer addressed that to the judge and said we would pursue this after a decision was made on my case.

Thanks

Yes get a decision first and than go for CUE. Looks like you have a good lawyer.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
