  • 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

Think They Are Going To Shaft Me...with Rush Job


Question

Well I looked at ebenefits a few minutes ago. I moved from gathering evidence to prep for decision.

I had my C&P exams Thursday, they have them logged in on Friday. The papers they sent me for my doctor's records that they dated 03 apr, that they mailed on the 16th by postmark, and I did not get until the 21st, the closed out Friday saying non receipt. I just got the records Friday and was going to drive them up Tuesday. I will now have to drive them up tomorrow and hope that they will at least look at them. Seems they have already rushed through their decision. They are just jaming this through to get it off the books, Great, move it out of the backlog and into the appeals area....Looks like they are going to double down on their tactics using to screw Vets and hide the truth from the gov't officials, and the public. Way to go Houston. Of course I will take all this back if i get approved, but I just have that feeling.

Update....got BBE yesterday....Guess I have to take back everything bad I said about Houston. Was granted everything in the end. No increase in IHD, but ended up with IU so it didn't matter. The one thing that I don't understand, is all the new percentages listed, between increases and new contentions approved, seems I meet 100% scheduler, no need for IU. But, in their letter, they said they did not give me specific percentages (or total percentage rating) because they gave me IU. Just mentioned I had 80% prior to this new rating. I know it doesn't matter as far as check is concerned, but if it now equals 100% scheduler, why not do that instead of IU??? Anyway, looks like I will not have to deal with the hamster wheel of appeals, thank god, as don't know if I would have lived long enough to see the end of that battle.

Congrats on the good news, and I prefer to be scheduler 100%, than IU, so the VA does not micromanage as much.

Is the IU permanent and total (P&T)? Or was the 100% schedular rating P&T? There are advantages and drawbacks to both, depending on your other ratings, how long you've had those ratings in effect, and your age.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,
    • This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
