  • 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

Question

When I had my PTSD C&P evaluation last week, after the ptsd part was done, she had me do a "Beck Depression Evaluation. It was over 320 questions and took about an hour to do. I looked at my records at myhealth to see if anything was in my records for the ptsd exam..(none posted), but this Beck Depression evaluation was there. The range for this is 0-63, with anything over 29 considered to be "severe depression" . My score was 52...so not only severe but also at the high end of the scale.

My question: is anyone familiar with this test ? Will the results play any part in the rating process? In otherwords, does this test mean anything other than telling me what I already know ? Or is this one tool the Dr will use in report to RO?

Thanks........greg

I have never had to do the test, and my PTSD here soon should go up to 70-100%. The VA went away with the GAF score, used for Mental %, but just like the GAF and the test you completed, they do help in the final evaluation, for the rater to see how severe a SMs mental health disability is. You did just fine bud, you were honest, and just wait and see what the VA says. I know how you feel, I had 6 C&P exams on 2/14/14, and the results are on MyHealthEVet, and know I am going crazy just waiting to see what the RO gives me. Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks SCPO...I appreciate your words and insight. I wish you all the best with your claims, and like you I am going crazy for the results. Patience is certainly not one of my virtues, or could that be one of my symptoms.

We all go crazy til we get the news, and even when we win, it just doesn't seem real. I am Navy04, the SCPO is an internal thing that Hadit does.

I recently had an exam with MSLA, and was wondering what will be the next step in the process of my claim.

    • OK so I had pancreatectomy in 2003 due to an impacted goldstone 2/3 of my  Pancreas was removed I am type one diabetes with very large scars continued diarrhea stomach problems Constant back and shoulder pain I recently received a Nexus letter from my  endocrinologist related to my service in the gulf war.  Any suggestions or advice from anyone
    • 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.
