  • 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

Question

I certainly hope the diagnosis is not leukemia.

The AO presumptive regs cover CLL (Chronic Leucocyte leukemia and Hairy Cell B leukemia.

There is a US CAVC case which was recently remanded to the BVA as the veteran claimed he had a subform of CLL and had medical evidence suggestive of the association to CLL.

Someone asked me to offer suggestions to the case and all I could offer was to tell the vet to get an IMO that is strong enough (from an oncologist) to raise the claim to the BOD level (Benefit of DOubt)

with a full medical rationale that his type of leukemia in fact was subset of CLL. Which is quite possible.

If you do get a diagnosis of leukemia please let us know exactly what the medical terminology is for it.

Then I can check into the status of this other vet's case to see what the VA did as to his attempt to prove subset.

and post his CAVC case here.

Thanks, I cannot thank you enough.

So far I've been through a tread mill test. Had a tube stuck down into my gut and one the other way (if you get my drift), so far every thing is good. I still need to complete a few more tests and as soon as I know more I'll post it.

Berta thank you.

I hope all test news is OK!

With 80% now, you are not far from TDIU paid at the 100% rate.The decision you got when you got up to 80% should have stated why they did not consider you for TDIU.

Are you still employed?

If not do you get SSDI solely for the 80% conditions?

Have you ever formally applied for TDIU with the 21-8940 form?

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
