    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

Peggy Says: "adequate For Rating"?


I had submitted my claim for PTSD, and about 5 other physical issues in October of 2008. I was in Iraq during OIF III. I got denied (no C and P)in 2009 while inpatient at the Montrose VA PTSD unit, of course I hired a lawyer and appealed I finally had a C & P for PTSD October 9, 2011. Peggy said they recieved the C and P exam October 24th, and also said that on November 28th my file says "adequate for rating". Unsure what that exactly means. I've had a lawyer since the original denial, not to mention contacting 2 congressmen, and a senator, all of which seemed useless. I'm just curious if this is going to a ratings board, or doesn't really mean anything. Welcome home everyone, and good luck.

It means they have done the development needed and will continue working towards

adjudicating a decision.

Hopefully you will have some resolve within 3-6 months, but there really is no set timeframe.

At this point I would submit absolutely NOTHING else at this time, unless requested to do so

and I would not contact a congress critter again, for now.

This is the time to sit back and let your claim issues continue working their way through the process.

Now my lawyer wants me to send in some employment history to the VA, I've worked two menial jobs since '07, and both times I almost got violent and got fired. I keep thinking that he is prolonging the claim just to make his 20% of his cut bigger. I really didn't know a whole lot until I started trolling on here. I wonder if this guy is the reason my claim has been laying in the cracks for the last 2 some odd years. And no, no more congressmen worms. If i had a big enough yellow ribbon I'd string them all up. Thanks Carlie. Sorry about my frustration, on New Years Day I'll be homeless for the third time since I got out. I got my phone turned off for Christmas. I bet the DRO and my lawyer both had a great holiday.

Yes they had a great HOLIDAY. Try to take your time! I know it can be rough out there, but you can do it. Everytime i get in a hurry i lose money to some one else. I hope the best for you, YOU keep trying! That's what my Doctor's at MD Anderson tell me!!! Keep trying :ph34r:

    • 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.
