  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Re-evaluation

Question

Brothers and Sisters,

I am SC 70% with IU for PTSD as of 03/2004. Today I got a letter from the VA saying that I was going to be re-evaluated to make sure everything is proper. In my award letter it said "no further exams will be scheduled" and on the last page it said that I became P&T as of March 2004. Does anyone know about this re-evaluation? I don't have the date yet and they didn't call it a C&P. Is it really another C&P?

Thanks for your help,

Judi :angry:

You know the VA seldom looks into a vet's C-File if ever beyond the first few pages. Inferred claims should be a priority, but the VA has never filed one for me and I have several conditions that should have been inferred claims but I have to file on them or nothing happens. Wings is right that the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing at the VA. Say, for instance, you have high glucose readings will the VA file an inferred claim for DMII? Don't hold your breath. The untreated DMII leads to many secondary conditions but will the VA jump on this to prevent further disability or death? No, they do nothing even when it is right in their face. Many times they do not even treat the condition much less alert someone in claims to do something like an inferred claim.

Back in June I received this letter from the VA. I am tdiu for Parkinsons disease as well as anxiety disorder. I to freaked out as I wa worried that they were about to pool the rug out so to speak. a week later my so contacted me about filling out the did you work form . I filled it out and it all went away. I beileve that this is one of those letters that is automatically generated when other forms are sent. I.E. did you work form. If you are IU and work then be prepared to be questioned as you should be.

Just my opinion

My daughter has written a letter stating that their letter has caused a lot of problems and that I do not work and have not worked and all the other things that still are the same as they were. I will make copies of everything and send it in to them. I still don't know when this appointment is going to be.

I have to get through the stress of seeing a neurologist Thursday for the MS. I am on SSD and I'll be finding out what they will cover with the Medicare. I hear MS medications are really expensive.

Thanks for all your input. I'll keep you posted.

Judi - if you are being paid at the 100% rate your MS meds should be free from the VA, even if it is not service-connected. You shouldn't be worrying about that. pr

Well...I just got a call from my SO and he says I should not bring up the MS because they might say that the PTSD got better and the depression is from the MS. The letter my daughter wrote mentions it so I guess I am not going to have her send it. Actually, I had a migraine in August and the doctor did all these MRI's and they discovered the demylenation in my brain. I didn't even know I had it. Anyway, he said to just go to the evaluation and not worry about it. That is not so easy to do as you all know. I did not file a claim for the MS but my VA doctor put the results of the MRI's in my records. I don't know...it's all so confusing.

Sounds like your SO is an a**hole. Unless you feel your PTSD has gotten better, also? Any chance the MS could be SC? Is the evalution a C&P? For MS?

    • Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is governed by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

      It can be a bit daunting. Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.

      It's helpful to understand how statutes, regulations, and VA directives such as the VA’s Adjudication Procedures Manual, the M21-1MR (Manual M21-1MR.) are related. Of these three sources of law, the statute, written by Congress, is the highest form. The statute that governs veterans’ benefits is found in Title 38 of the United States Code (U.S.C.). The VA writes regulations to carry out the laws written by Congress; these are found in Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.). The VA’s internal instructions for adjudicating claims are contained in the Manual M21-1MR. VA regulations may not conflict with any statute; the manual’s provisions may not conflict with either statute or regulations. If they do, the Court has the power to invalidate them.

    • I was unable to find a reply box to your post.

      We have a full Agent Orange forum here.

      Many veterans (and even their survivors) have succeeded in getting a disability, not on the presumptive list, service connected due to their proven exposure to AO.

      Also Secretary Wilkie is considering a few new presumptives, but we have no idea if  he will even add any to the list.

      I wrote to him making a strong argument, as  to the potential for HBP to be added, as well as ischemic stroke and have prepared a personal claim based on the same report a veteran used at the BVA, who also had a strong IMO/IME, and the BVA recently granted his HBP as due to his exposure to AO in Vietnam.

      Most veterans with HBP were deemed as having "essential" - a medical term for no know cause- now we have a cause in Vietnam veterans---AO caused it.

       

      The report is here:

      https://www.nap.edu/read/25137/chapter/2

      On page 8 they found there is "Sufficient" evidence that AO caused HBP in Vietnam veterans.

      The BVA case and this report is also searchable in our AO forum.

    • I just received a deposit to my checking account. The description says VALG TREAS 310 TYPE: XXVA.
      I'm not sure who to ask about this deposit. I am concerned because I was not notified I would be receiving it.
      I retired from the Marines in 1997 with 10% disability. I've been receiving a separate disability payment from my regular retirement pay. This deposit is completely unexpected. thank you for any insight.
