  • 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.

    • 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.
