  • 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

Looks Like I Got Denied

Question

It appears my claim for an increase for PTSD and TDIU was denied. My claim was closed and no increase showing on the benefits letter on eBenefits. Haven't got the brown/white envelope yet but I pretty much bummed out.

If your current SC is 20%, that makes it very hard to get approved for TDIU. As far as your PTSD we need to see the Exam Report. I just had my C&P last Friday and this Friday I was able to download the exam. It looks like my PTSD, which is 30% now, will be bumped up to 70-100%. In my case I have had PTSD for 5 years, and well documented, to include 3 months in a Civilian Mental Hospital. Sorry to hear of your troubles bud, but again if you load your Exam Results on here, we can give you better advice. God bless and take care

I guess I'll have a better idea of how they found a way to screw me when I get the envelope.

Do you not have a copy of the Exam? We can help you a lot with that info alone.

I never had a second C&P exam. However, I did submit a DBQ from my Vet Center counselor.

I got denied for TDIU the first time. I went out and got an IME to put it right. The VA tried to say my 70% disability was not the reason I could not work. They tried to say the pain meds I was on at the time were the cause. It was BS, but the IME fixed it. Wait for the decision. Get new evidence and appeal and ask for DRO Hearing.

    • 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.
