  • 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

My C&p Is Tomorrow

Question

well my PTSD C&P is tomorrow and I am freaking out. The stress load here is getting heavy. I feel like a cat walking on a hot tin roof. I know I need to calm down, but how? I have read evey statement on here from other veterans. I have asked questions and have gotten some very good replys back. I guess tomorrow will tell, if it is a yea or nae. I have things to say and show, but will they listen or just go thru the motion of listering to me. I know they have questions to ask, but will it be base strickly on the questions? I will just be glad when it is over and I have this monkey off my back, and maybe I can sleep more than a few hours at a time. Sorry about the rant, just had to vent.

Just be honest and truthful as to how PTSD affects your everyday life.

Try to relax a bit... I know, easier said than done.

Best wishes on your C&P.

ALOT OF US ON HADIT HAVE HAD THIS EXAM

2 cents worth !

Wording and what you tell the examiner is very important

Such as whether or not the claimed stressor is related to the VETERANS fear of hostile military or terrorist activity;if possible the answer should be yes,this is one of the most important question you may get

If answer no, could cost you a denial on your claim[if you can answer yes would be better for your claim

Try to tell all, this is not the time to hold back [normally this is a one time shot to get it right

take your time and think about the questions given

Who is doing this {QTC} or the VA

There is a sample of the PTSD exam on HADIT try to read it some today

Hope the best to you

The above apply's IF the claim is being rated under the new PTSD regs

and IF the stressor relates to the example above.

    • 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.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
