  • 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

Question

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!

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
