  • 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 For Mtbi

Question

I am supposed to be having another c&p done because when I did my initial one back in February of last year they didn't schedule it. Last I talked to the DAV they said that the va expected to have all evidence by mid February.

My question is I read the thread about the dos and donts of c&p.

I guess I'm looking for any advice on what they primarily focus on and how to be sure they can see how it does affect me but also while being direct about it. I learned unfortunately too late that you should not try and act as if nothing is wrong and be the typical Marine who just deals with issues because then they equate that to you not having any problems.

Welcome to Hadit.com WhyMista.

Many vets have tried to "suck it up and march on" - it's what was instilled in us in whatever branch of service from bootcamp on...so you are not alone. A C&P exam IS NOT the place you want to suck it up - just be honest about your condition or symptoms and never give up the fight to obtain the compensation you have earned through your service to our country.

You might want to read this thread in regards to what they will focusing on in regards to TBI

Semper Fi!

So today I went to the va today get copies of my c & p. They of course didn't do mine for tbi but the doctor who did the consult for vertigo said that it wasn't vertigo I'm suffering from as there aren't any vestibular problems and that I should be seen by a neurologist as it is most likely my issues cause by either a neurological disease or tbi.

That and apparently I can't touch my finger to my nose with my eyes closed and I have balance problems when standing with my eyes closed so whenever I go for my tbi c&p having one opinion from within the va should help.

1stCivDiv is so boring.....

Don't worry devil dog, its boring but it has its perks...at least you don't have to worry about IED's here right lol... As far as your C&P, your exactly right about that docs opinion, put that in your magazine because it definitely counts as a medical opinion in your favor. And like you said... He works for the va so it's a win win.

    • 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.
