    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

Ptsd 70% <Paying 100% Unemployable

Question

Hello my sisters and brothers,

I have a question I know for sure one of you will have the answer to.First was given an sc for ptsd at 70% paying 100%IU.

I was told to put in for 100% pt which I did to get a date started on this claim. I received a notice that it was concidered a non-claim because

I was aready drawing 100% Unimployability. also sent paper work showing that I have been trying to get work since Dec 2008, through the texas state

work force comissions veterans program.And of course they have all my records that state that my condition is stagnate and my meds have been increased

througt out my my treatment. My question is- what do I have to do to get these people to declare me 100% permanent and total??? Its been 4 years now of trying

to get better or find a job on these meds that make it impossible to do any work at all.I'm going broke trying to keep up with my wifes medical bills,It would

be nice if I could enroll her into chapter 35,it would help out with our medical bills greatly> THANK YOU BANDIDO BILL

You can be TDIU P&T. All that will change is you will be entitled to extra benefits like ChampVA for family, and other stuff you don't get now

I feel ,when a vet gets TDIU,and some retro, they might want to consider getting an IMO from a Voc Rehab specialist with that retro for the purposes of supporting a P & T claim.

Some disabilities could be difficult to warrant a P & T status but the benefits of P & T are enormous-if an IMO would help.

I have never had a single problem with CHAMPVA and I used Chapter 35 as well.

I have not been medicated for many months now but as I recall CHAMPVA paid 75 % of my meds and will pay that for most brand name meds as well as generics.

I went on the DASH diet and don't need BP meds anymore but I certainly can imagine how this benefit could save money for your wife's health care.

Did the award letter state why they did not find you P & T?

    • 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
