  • 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

Assistance With Program


My classes online have begun but I still need materials ordered and I have not gotten any communication with my VRC. I simply can't get a hold of him to order my

books and he already knows that my classes have started but has made no effort to get the books needed or responded to my emails and calls.

I feel like I'am being set up for failure, I haven't even received my stipend from last semester when I was under a different counselor. Is this really how this program operates?

What the hell is going on? My classes have started and I still have no books

If your counselor hasn't responded then try calling his/her sup. Maybe he's been off work sick, or vacation.

Your school- whether online or traditional college should have a VA counselor on site or accessible via email or phone.

In my experience this is the way Voc Rehab should work-it is the school's VA liason and counselor who handles the books and other stuff.

When you say VRC I assume you mean the VA person.

," I haven't even received my stipend from last semester when I was under a different counselor"

Say what????

This is ridiculous.

"Is this really how this program operates?"

Absolutely not.

You need to contact the school's VA counselor as well as their Financial Aid officer.

Thanks for the replys.

Cooter, that's a negative I've spoken to people in the office and they say the counselor has just been sitting in his office ignoring all phone calls. I haven't even been paid my stipend from a previous semester when that counselor quit in the middle of my semester without even informing me!!!!! LEFT ME HANGING!!!!!! NOW I"M LEFT HANGING AGAIN!!! I HATE THESE PEOPLE THEY DONT CARE ABOUT ANYONE! They shouldn't have approved enrollment in classes if they were going to do this to me!

Contact your Congressman and have them pose the question. I bet you will have an answer with 3 days. Try it!

    • 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:
