  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

Claim Completed Sat 12/15/13

Question

My Claim completed Sat 12/15/12, This is the following MONDAY & no change in my AB8 letter. I also checked benefits explorer & payments & my bank----NOTHING CHANGED. I've been at 40% SC for a while, How long does it take for the Houston RO to update the AB8 letter?. I'm thinking I was denied. Guess all I can do now is wait for the envelope & appeal if denied. Anybody got any other idea whats going on? I know Ebenefits is not that reliable at times.

Tuesday 12/18/12 Just talked to my SO. He called & was told I was denied on hearing loss & that the others (anxiety depression IU ) was pending. Then why did they complete the claim???

I don't know if anyone can tell you for sure, but maybe those serviced by that VARO can answer. Also, you might check:

Got the envelope today Denied everythingmad.gif . I'm gona appeal. Called Peggy all she would say is that if I disagreed with the decision send a NOD. While I had her on the phone I ask for copies of my C&Ps, She said she would file a request I should get them in 4-6 weeks. Does it take an appeal as long as a claim??

It can take much longer. My claim has been on appeal since 2006 and has made it up the chain all the way and remanded and back again in the last three years. I have at least a year to go for a decision and then who knows?

    • 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.
