  • 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

Outsider Finally Stepping In...

Question

Good evening everyone! I stumbled upon this site some time ago while doing research for my own ongoing claim, and after fighting with the captcha-lol-I finally joined after following you all to the point that I feel as if I know you! Let me say that being a vet of 12 yrs now working as a govt contractor, I admire the support everyone offers to each other here. I feel that now that I am a "civilian" my military counterparts (some not all) don't look at us as in the same boat anymore sadly, and one thing I always loved abt being in the military WAS that sense of family! Anywhoo, I am into my 8th month of what was supposed to have been a FDC. My VARO is St. Pete's, and after my last C&P in the beginning of Nov, I was surprised to see my claim speed up in Dec. A decision was made on the 4th and Peggy says I'm still in prep for notification! I'm getting nervous! Everyone else seems to have gotten theirs closed out a couple days or so after! Any ideas? This is my first ever claim and I had 4 issues put in.

Yes. And, make sure the VA has your current banking information, account number, etc, so they can make a deposit of retro and ongoing payments. If they dont have this, make sure they do. You may be able to sign up for this at your local VAMC, or with your VSO

@N.Kelly-hahahahaha yes I don't know what happened, I was struggling with it for a while! Thanks everyone, I've been watching Ebenefits more and its painful! Lol. I wasn't even sure how this claim would go! I've been out for 7 years already and was MEB'd for major depression at 10 percent DOD rating. I foolishly thought that was my VA rating and never did anything. I received a severance pay but I hadn't expected to get anything from VA. Although I've managed my condition without meds-ok maybe wine helps-but I've never really been able to afford regular therapy after getting out. Uuuugghhh, I'm hating this part of the process....

Tash,

I know how you feel about the FDC process. Mine was submitted in Sep 13 and the VA is just now working on it. With the holidays approaching you should know something in the next few weeks. Good luck to you and keep us posted bud. God bless and may we all have an early Christmas.

    • 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.
