  • 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-File In Limbo

Question

Over 2 weeks ago went for a second C&P exam at Va Hospital in NYC. My DRO is still waiting for it to come back to him so it can be rated and completed. After a six year wait on my appeal and many exams this feels like an eternity. So today I call the hospital itself and was told it was sent back to RO in NYC a week ago. Then the gentleman tells me that it is probably in the mailroom at RO and no one has opened it yet . C'mon , I know we all have waited and waited for many things from the VA but this seems excessive ! Can I go to RO personally and ask for it and take it up myself ? Or can someone offer advice on how to get them to open the mail ? As always thanks for all the advice.

Negatory on donning USPS gear, sir. I can say I feel your frustration. I had to wait seven months for my file to travel less than a mile from the CAVC on 625 Indiana Ave. NW DC over to BVA at 810 Vermin Ave. NW. There it sat for several more months. And then, ... it went to the AMC. You are lucky. It's local. It will get done but it will be painfully slow. The only consolation we have in this is winning. Well, that and our good name. By denying us, they are calling us liars and cheats. That didn't sit well with me then and it still doesn't now. I expect that's why there are so many of us eager to help you and pay the VA back for their rudeness. Best of luck, sir.

Hey brothers and sisters ! Just went on ebenefits and under appeal status it was changed to " no info " and under the date of my NOD it now has a new entry with todays date and SOC { statement of case } next to it. for 4 yrs it hasn't changed. The SOC I assume is from my intial denial from 2009. What does this mean ? Good , Bad , Ugly ? Is it finally being worked or rated ? HELP !

Where was your appeal for six years? Did you appeal to DRO and wait six years? Did your claim go to BVA and get remanded back to the VARO. I have been waiting about 8 years and my claim has been to the DRO twice, the BVA twice and the CAVC twice. A lot of movement and still waiting but I think the train is on the track, maybe, this time.

John never went to BVA has been at RO since the NOD . Spoke to DRO last week and he has been waiting to get the file back after a second C&P for PTSD. Both CPs say I have PTSD from 2 diff doctors and I have been seeing a VA therapist the entire time.

    • 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.
