  • 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

Called the 1-800 # today and hit 0 and waited about 5 minutes before a gentleman came on. He immediately ask me for the normal information, and told him that I was sensitive seven, and he transferred me to a Lady that had the correct classification. She told me that my PTSD re-examination was still under review, and they were trying to determine if they need more evidence. Now, I had the C&P done back last Oct 2010. I just do not understand what other evidence they could need after the C&P. I do know that on my first C&P, the doctor gave me a GAF of 55, but I was in and out. The second Doctor gave me a GAF of 50, and gave a more detailed report of my suffering, and that I was unable to be employable. Could the VA just be stalling because the second examination was not what they wanted to see?

JMO Papa, I think it's one of their BS stall tactic's. Comeon! How long does it take to TRY to determine! Either they have the facts or don't. Don't tell me their just sitting there scratching their heads wondering. I'm sure you sent all available evidence and went thru 2 C&P exams, so what else could they possibly want from you. I think their just taking their sweet ass time with it. My second thought's on this stalling crap is, it's probably going in your favor, and their TRYING to figure a good lowball % for you.

To Papa

You can always write a letter to the VA, stating that you want them to decide the claim with the evidence they have.

(The usual certified receipt required mail, etc., or deliver it in person, and get a date stamped copy.)

I think they see the second exam as being enough for 70% rating as opposed to the first exam which is more in line with 50%. If they grant you 70% then TDIU is almost a given. I think they are trying to figure out how to find a reason not to grant 70%. Knowing these bastards that is probably how they think. I would write them a letter and tell them to go with the evidence they have, but they may not do that since that does not fit their ideas. This is my opinion only.

I think I finally found out what the VSO people at the rating board looks like.

    • 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:
