  • 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

Has Houston Lost Their Minds? New Timeline.

Question

I just checked Ebenefits after receiving a C&P exam report. My claim was in the preparing decision phase after being in the gathering evidence phase for over 900 days. Well, it is now back in the gathering evidence stage, and here is the new timeline: 08/12/2013 to 04/20/2014. My claim started on 02-16-2010. "We determined that your claim needed additional review, and if additional evidence is needed, we will send you a letter." Now, the only thing that I did that lately was have my Nuerologist complete a DBQ for my Parkinson's disease, but that has nothing to do with this claim. I just can not understand what is happening. But, I do have a feeling that since my claim is so old, that they may want me to retake all the C&P exams over, but that would be total BS. I know there is slomething wrong, but what pis*ses me off is that I don't know what to do about it. My Lawyer is too busy with Sandy at the moment.

I would say that it probably was to review the DBQ. JMHO. Hopefully that will be done sooner than later. Good Luck...

The Parkinson's disease claim is not part of the 2-16-2010 claim. The DBQ was done because the VA gave me the basic 30%. Regardless, it should not take that long to review this DBQ. JMHO.

Papa,

just another way to try and wear the Veteran down. They should be able to tell by your tenacity, you arent' giving up!

We have a dependency claim, the projected completion date was 2-2013 which has now moved to 4-2013. And get this, a projected completion date for PTSD claim 11-18-2012 changed to 11-20-2012. REALLY! you changed it by 2 days???

What the heck is wrong with these VARO's.

Good luck to you.

Papa, I definitelyl understand your frustration. My own Timeline jumped forward in time this week from an estimated completion date of 09/01/2012 to 09/24/2012. It has jumped forward and backward in time many times now, and I no longer pay attention to it. Now I won't lie, and say that I won't get mad if they push it forward to 2014 or 2015 again. My own claim is a little younger than yours, since it all started on 06/19/2010.

I wish I had some answer, or idea the method of their madness is, but I don't......other than like has been said many times on here......they are hoping that a Veteran will either lose interest in their claim, or die.

It seems like eBenefits has been offering the survey link suggestion several times lately when I log on, and I always complete it just so that the VA can get some input. I keep asking them to provide digital images (jpg's or PDF files) of all records belonging to a Veteran that are filed with the VA.....imagine how great it would be to be able to log in and view or print out your C-File contents, or other VA documents that attached with your files.

I also keep asking them to bring eBenefits into a more "real time" mode whereby there is little delay in between the time a Veteran, doctor, medical center or the VA submits information and it is available almost immediately for viewing or printing. It would save the VA tons of money on call center staffing, and in answering FOIA requests, and God only knows how much money in postage, envelopes, etc the VA would save if a Veteran could view/print documents themselves.

I look at it this way. If I can drive down to the bank and deposit a check, and then drive 5 minutes and get back home, turn on the computer and view/print my deposit slip online when the ink is not more than 10 minutes old, then the VA should be able to at least have documents viewable within a week long period.

Good luck on your claim, and I'll keep y'all posted on my own Gathering Dust status as it changes.....or grows moss.

Peace out and have a great week.

Mark

    • 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.
