  • 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

Ptsd And Ebenefits

Question

I have been watching ebenefits for a long time on my claims. It state, need more evidents from me. Well I called the 1-800 and spoke to a nice lady. I ask her what else could they need, they have my DD214 showing I was on the ground in Viet Nam, and all the medals and awards I got. They also know my MOS and a copy of the eval from the MH facility from the VA in Columbus GA. Her reply was "I DON'T KNOW" and that is just a standard reply while waiting on a decision. She also said it would be about 8 months. I reminder it is showing up to 02/2013. Heck who knows what going on in the VA.

Hollis - 02/2013 is the next date your claim is scheduled to be looked at. At that time they may decide if they have all the evidence, may request more, may make a decision . . . who knows! Sorry it takes so long but "it is what it is" and that's just life. Your decision is coming, eventually. I know this doesn't help but hang in there. jmo

Dont let "Peggy" blow you off. They will often try just that. VA is trained if they dont know the answer they are to "baffle us with BS". Many times that works...we have to Holler "BS".

Send an IRIS email with your "question"....... it sounds like a legit one to me. Something like:

IRIS:

Ebenefits shows my claim is being held up due to non receipt of evidence. Could you please tell me the evidence that is holding this up?

Signed...Ima Veteran.

Time after time I have seen this with VA. If you ask three VA people something you will get 3 vastly different answers. Just keep going till you get the answer you want to hear. You have to keep reminding yourself the VA has inept management.

    • 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.
