    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

The media buzz seems to be all about the VAMC and health care. It appears the VAROs and their affiliates are being played down. If the public only knew... Cmdr. Bob

I hope the new VA Secretary does well. I will try to remain optimistic...there is a lot of improvement needed and we need someone who is up to the challange. Maybe this guy is the one who will rise up and do it.

The VARO's are just criminals. They put the F-you in Fraud. I watched 60 Minutes last Sunday and there was a segment about SSDI fraud, and how so many people are getting SSDI via crooked lawyers, and judges possibly on the take. Next it will be veterans getting compensation for Tinnitus and PTSD fraudulently, and nothing about the millions of vets cheated out of just compensation for the last 70 years. The VA is a baby of congress and congress could fix it and make it really work except for possible cost, and all those jobs, research money for local medical schools and construction projects congressmen can use as rewards for their districts. If they just gave us all VA cards we could use like Tricare, Blue Cross or Medicare who would that reward besides the actual veterans? The VA as it is is just an excuse and a sham instead of a solution. However, when asked many vets seem to love the old VA. I think they are only talking about the health side to vets who probably have no other options. Any medical care is better than none. If you go to any big VA hospital you will find many vets living in squalor close to the hospital or VARO just so they can be near it. Many live near the VA hospital in Tampa even though the area is dangerous and apartments are dumps. Maybe there are VA hospitals that are good. I have not been to one.

And the band played on. I have no high hopes for McDonald, Vet or not, been there done that.

I see appeasement, and within a year we are gonna joke about him not being able to spell, or the VA asking you if you want fries with that good care they just gave you :tongue:

My Wife is working out of the Richmond VA, they do heart and lung transplants. She loves that job and is amazed at the quality of care and the amount of great doctors that give it.....I told her that that is great to hear, but if she ever got time, she needed to go to the other side of the VAMC where the average everyday care happens and she would tell me a different story.

When this all broke on the tube, she could not comprehend it, yet I told her things are not always as they seem when it comes to uncle sucker doing the right thing......I think she gets it now, but still a little dumbfounded about the whole thing.

      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.
