  • 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

Desperately Need Copy Of C&p Exam

Question

Hello,

I just completed all three C&P Exams the VA set up for me through QTC. I am seeking an increased PTSD rating, a TBI rating, and TDIU. The first exam I had was with a doctor contracted by QTC who, after about an hour, told me in her EXACT WORDS: "Do not worry about anything. I will be recommending 100% disability for your PTSD and TBI symptoms." Naturally I was glad to hear that but I would feel even more comfortable SEEING her report.

I am also in the process of appealing my SSDI and a positive report/evaluation like that would GREATLY benefit that claim as well. How can I get a copy of her C&P exam?? It was not done at a VA hospital so that makes it harder. I am told that QTC likes to keep a tight lid on their exams.

Any suggestions based on experiences would be much appreciated as time is of the essence in regards to the Social Security Disability claim.

Thank you!

LC

I personally do not feel you will be able to obtain a copy of your

C&P exam/results, done by a QTC examiner, until after a rating decision

has finished adjudication and decisions have been made.

Thanks for your reply. You're probably right.... but I still wonder if there isn't a way around it. I've got to believe my VA case will be moving to the next phase soon since all the C&P exams have been completed and I have submitted every possible shred of evidence I can think of to help my case. Maybe, luck will be on my side and the decision will come down in time so I can get that report sent to me and submitted to Social Security before they rule on my appeal for disability...crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.:unsure:

When you filed for SSD did you include a medical report saying you were totally disabled for at least a year? Did SSD send you for an exam? I think your VA claim is in the bag if the QTC doctor does what she says.

John,

I filed for SSDI on 2/12/2011...I stated that I became disabled in early February 2011. They never sent me for an exam because I was advised to submit the attached "Document of Clarification" (see attached file for form letter I used). According to the SS regulations, nothing says a person has to have been disabled for a year...only that their current condition is LIKELY to be disabling for a period of 12 months or longer. I submitted Doctor's letters, etc. stating that my condition was not likely to improve and that I was not able to maintain gainful employment.

I was disapproved for SSDI on 9/16/2011 and filed my appeal on 9/21/2011.

I welcome any advice or comments you may have...Hadit.com has been a wealth of info- BETTER THAN AN ATTORNEY in my humble opinion!

    • 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:
