  • 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

It's My Turn! Fdc On The Move

Question

OMFG! I don't believe it. My FDC status has finally changed from the 1st step of Under Review to the 2nd step of Gathering Evidence! The estimated claim completion date only extended out 2 extra months--not bad! Under Contentions, it always previously said VBMS (new); now it lists the 2 contentions we actually filed for.

I realize Ebenefits is only as good as the person updating the info at the VARO, but nonetheless, I'm so excited and happy. I feel like I just won the lottery or something. Also, a little bit emotional because I've been working my a$$ off for 40 to 50 hours per week on this claim & learning the "VA Process" since September. It's nice to know someone has actually looked at it!

It says "Development Letter Sent". This is an FDC, so I've already signed the VCAA 5103 notice. What could that be for?

The past 2 weeks, I've been emailing every other day, the VSO's in my area asking for status updates. Also, my FDC just hit the 125 day mark. Coincidence?????

Good Bless.

I never got 5103 Waiver notice. They are five months behind in sending it to me, but I did swear that I did not have any more evidence. I filed in June of 2013 and nothing has happened since that date. I refuse to check Ebenefits again since the so-called completion date retreats in front of my eyes every time I check.

    • 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.
