  • 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

Good One For A Laugh

Question

Hey Everyone,

I had to share this one. So my case was sent back to the Hartford RO via a joint remand issued by the CAVC throwing out BVA and RO decisions prior. So 13 years later they give me increases for my neurological back issues (40% right leg, 20% left leg) which does nothing for me because I'm already 100% from 2009 and they ignored evidence of the record going back from 2009-2000. So no back pay. So it will be another 2-3 years hopefully to get a proper decision.

Here is the kicker. One of my issues was an increase to 10% for hypertension. Everyone said I couldn't get 10% but I'm not good at people telling me what I can and can't get / do. So on the way back from the CAVC the BVA / AMC awards me 10% for hypertension. So the Hartford RO in their attention to detail in the decision referenced above denied an increase for hypertension and stated it will remain 0%. Come on guys. You can see my 10% rating even from the medical side of the house in their computers. I guess they paid attention to my remand and decisions from the CAVC / BVA / AMC. I'm sorry but you have to laugh at this one. I know it's not funny but after 14 years on appeal for 6 different service connections I need to laugh at something!

We all know the VA are idiots. Atleast record wise you have a Decent VA, I from your neck of the woods, but I live near Dallas, and our RO in Waco is one of the worst document ROs in the Country. As long as we win the War, the Battles wont matter in the end. Good luck with your claim and keep us posted.

    • 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.
