    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

Authorization Review Question

Question

Does anyone know for sure if the yearly TDIU letter the VA sends regarding employment shows up as "authorization review" in the Completed Claims section of eBenefits after they receive it?

Sending them in certified mail w/return receipt is great in theory but how does one REALLY know if they have processed it? Heard way too many instances of fellow vets having their TDIU stopped because the VA says form wasn't received. In some cases, it has taken several months to get it re-started resulting in financial hardship...just sayin'

About the only way I know of to be sure they get your

yearly employment questionnaire (for IU) is to submit it

in person to your VARO and get a date stamped copy when you

do it.

Many always post to send paperwork via USPS and do it RRR.

That way you at least get the signed green card back to verify

you sent something to the VARO and they received something.

My problem with this is it leaves them an out to dispute what it is,

that they received.

If a claimant has more than one thing going on with the VARO, this

could be a problem.

If I lived even 8-10 hours away from my VARO (luckily mines a 10 minute drive)

I would invest in a little one night road trip to ensure proof in my hand, that they

received whatever I was supposed to submit.

JMHO

I'm about a 3 hour drive from my VARO but I will gladly make the drive if it gives me piece of mind. In this day and age, I hope the VA strongly considers putting a system in place similar to what banks do when you deposit a check over the internet...an email is generated with a picture image of the check confirming its' acceptance. Perhaps since they already allow this for other supporting documents for claims then it too can be displayed on eBenefits...just an idea!

Just hope the people who work on the Obama Care website don't get transferred to work on the eBenefits site...Can you imagine the mess we'd have?? LOL!!

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
