  • 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

Mailed Nod Today

Question

Thanks to my DAV Rep and all the posts on this site, I mailed my NOD off. Any SWAG's on a favorable outcome ?

***NOTICE OF DISAGREEMENT***

Consideration by a Decision Review Officer is requested

I received a rating decision dated April 15, 2011. I disagree with the 30% award for PTSD and am requesting the maximum allowed by law. Please consider this letter to be an official "Notice of Disagreement" (NOD)

Please refer to new evidence enclosed;

1. Attached letter and V.A. Progress Notes from Dr. **** and Dr. **** pertaining to current impact of my PTSD and related symptoms on my Social and Occupational functioning.

2. Attached letter from *****, Supervisor and ****, Regional Program Manager regarding accommodations made for me at my place of employment due to the current impact of my PTSD and related symptoms on my Occupational functioning.

3. Attached letter from *****, Step-Daughter, relating to the current impact of my PTSD and related symptoms on my Social functioning.

Considering the attachments and with review of my V.A. Progress Notes, it appears that I have not been evaluated properly. With my reduced reliability and productivity due to depression, anxiety, frequent panic attacks, difficulty in understanding complex commands, impairment of short and long term memory, disturbances in motivation and mood and difficulty in maintaining effective work and social relationships, I am walking billboard for severe PTSD.

If you are able to work full time even with accommdation then I think 30%-50% is the kind of rating you will probably get even if your doctor says you are out of your mind. If you get 50% then that is good place to be if you have to retire on disability one day. It is a shorter jump from there to 70% TDIU than from 30%. I would have asked for a DRO Hearing in my NOD.

    • 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:
