  • 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

I just received another BVA remand on my 1999 SMC "s" award claim, for HB/A&A, inferred issue, back to 1989. This is getting to be fun! You'd think I'd be tired of it but I'm not. This gives me time to add an IMO, if I can find a physician or shrink that can give me a possitive IMO. In the remand decision I discovered I was granted s/c, for nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy of the right eye, effective 9/8/10, considered a complication of diabetes mellitus, but was never notified of the decision. Here we go again (or some more)!

That is great Philip!

Whatever a remand calls for -to me-is what the vet needs to pursue as well.

Persistence and evidence equal Victory!

Sounds good to me - a remand over a denial and can submit additional evidence :-)

Might turn out to be some fantastic retro over more than a decade !

Is the retinopathy at a compensable level either past or current ?

Carlie - I don't think so. Just before they awarded it the eye exam I had says I don't have it. I still haven't received the notice awarding it. The remand is dwelling on whether my SC PTSD keeps/kept me from leaving the home specifically to earn an income. Based on that I should win and if I do it should be back to '89. Should know in about 4-5 more yrs. jmo

    • 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:
