  • 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

Anybody Have This Happen To Them?

Question

I was doing my daily scan through e-benefits about a month ago and suddenly all my open claims dissapeared.It showed no open claims.I called the VA and was told that the claims were closed but that my appeal was intact.The claims that were supposed to still be open were for IU;Tinnitus;Hearing Loss and bruxism.Upon further investigation I discovered that a request was sent to the VA to close all claims sent from my VSO in Phoenix.Having given them POA I was told it didn't require my signature.The NSO representing me at the time was someone I didn't get along with and had several verbal confrontations.He was transferred to Philadelphia but left a trail of carnage in his wake.I guess you really have to be careful with whomever you give Power of Attorney to.I now understand why my DRO appeal for increase has been taking over 3 years. You really need to stay on top of these claims and not take anybodys word that they did what they said they would do.Suppose to have it straightened out by next week but who knows.It seems these VSO's will tell you what you want to hear and then do nothing at all.

Yes, very similar problem with my VSO. His heart was in the right place, but he hosed up my claim and then quit or was removed I dunno which.

You shouldn't have to guard yourself from a VSO, Dyer.

If he did you wrong work your way up the food chain and burn his azz; contact his new station.

I have a VSO that is very nice, has too much faith in the VA, and does everything half azz. I chose him because, one he is the only one available, two he is a 30 yr retired E-9, but he is but hurt because he only got 10% for a cut finger, and the VA did not grant his claim for being overweight, WTH!. I should be 100% soon, and he is the type that will tell veterans that I received my ratings because of him, yeah right. Didn't mean to ramble, just tired of us having to work twice as hard, to make up for incompetence.

It'll take some time but I should be able to get everything back to where it was.The manager of the office where he worked is being more than helpful right now but I'm curious to see what will happen when I ask her for a copy of the letter he sent to the VA.Any bets on whether or not it disappears mysteriously.It should be in my VA file at the Regional Office but I've heard of horror stories where you cant trust them either.I've got a politician watching my back now also and he seems like a straight shooter.Haven't told him yet of the fiasco.`The stuff could hit the fan here in Phx before it's all done with.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
