  • 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

How Does It Work?

Question

I hope this is the correct place to ask this. If not, I do apologize. I have MS and urinary frequency. I have the urge to go about every 30-45 minutes. I know that MS is rated at 30% minimum and that urinary frequency less than an hour is 40%. I have been on some medicine that has helped and the urge to go is about an hour and half now, which is rated at 20%. Does the VA rate me on my normal baseline without medication at 40%, or 20% on continuous medication? It doesn't really matter that much, but I would like to know how this works? Thanks for the help.

Jones v. Shinseki 2012 says they have to rate you on the baseline before medication. They cannot legally take the medication into account in deciding the rating. File a NOD if they low ball you.

Yeah, you know to me it would be similar to a person being rated for high blood pressure, but when on medication they no longer have high blood pressure. Are they rated for high blood pressure even though it's gone with medication? That is why I was thinking they would have to base it off your normal baseline before medication.

Has anybody had any luck filing a claim and using the "Jones v. Shinseki" information, or had to file a NOD using it?

    • 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.
