  • 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

C&p Results Are In


Question

My C&P has been turned in: Currently I am rated for 90%. Here is what the Dr. wrote: "IU" Opinion. "This veteran is unable to do or maintain any type of work that falls into the heavy category. He has significent heart disease with episodes of chest pain. Anything to do with heavy lifting and straining is contraindicated due to his heart disease. He also would be unable to do heavy work due to his knees with multiple surgeries on the right knee and instability. He would also be prevented from doing light work due to the instability and the heart problem, and due to instability of his knees he is at risk of falling and therefore at risk at work. He may be able to do some sedentary work but this would be very limited, he is a great risk of falling due to the instability of the knee, especially the right knee. He is in essence totally and completely disabled."

What is your take on this? Sounds like if the rater goes along withe Dr. then I will be successful.

Sound good John, it is now how the rater see it,the C&P examiner stated that sedentary work was limited,in "Essence" you are totally and completely disable,and it seen like a 50/50 posibility and if the rater look at it like that,you should be rater IU because when the evidence is balance,it is in favor of the veteran. GOOD LUCK!

I reread the complete C&P report (28 pages). The part for knees the Dr. marked (Chronic residuals consisting of severe painful motion or weakness) He checked this for both knees. I checked and this corresponds to 60% unter 5055. But I also noted that the echo for the heart corresponds to 30% down from 60%. I also have a 10% for problems related to blood clots which was not addresed in this exam.

If this is correct then this would put me at 95%= 100% whereas I am currently at 93%=90%. This is the first time that I have seen this type of worksheet for the exams. Maybe the IU will be moot and I will get 100% schedular. Thanks for any imput.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
