    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

Va Messed Me Over

Question

OK here is a beautiful mess created by the VA. As earlier stated in a earlier post I had a decided case and put in a request to find status on the case.

The status was the case had been decided upon and was in the notification page. However when th VA in Washington applied a TDIU claim to my file

I find the whole file back in development. So apparently because they filed the TDIU they will put me back at the starting line and I am in development stage. Lord I waited 14 months for the case be deceided and now I hope not but all signs to a new 14 month wait.

Somebody please tell me I am wrong LOL.

Did you send them a filled out TDIU form?

They might be checking the employers and anything else they need to check.

Also if you get SSDI they will want to get those records too.

I don't think you are going to start from day one at all-I think they are 'developing' the TDIU claim and TDIU is better than any lower rating you might have to appeal.

Most vets have to apply for TDIU themselves as the VA wont consider it because of their rating.

In your case it looks to me like VA did the right thing to consider you for TDIU at this point.

Do you have a vet rep? They might be able to get more info for you on the status.

But no one can predict how long any claim could take.

    • 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.
