  • 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

Dead Veteran Set For C & P Exam

Question

Guest Berta

The Buffalo VARO sent my c file on Sept 23rd to the Bath VAMC to have the veteran obtain a C & P exam.

He has been dead for 11 years!

I can hardly believe this-

wait a minute- yes I can-----

I think I better get over there to the VAMC and see how this will be done.

Is this ridiculous or what?

Maybe they could exume him? The VA is probably the only idiots who would argue whether or not a Veteran has been dead for 11 years.

he's not dead until the C&P doc says he's dead. knew it was only a matter of time before they started arguing that point,,,,,,,,,, Berta do you still have the urn? I would make sure he showed up for the exam.

I sent some of Rod's ashes to the VARO long ago as evidence in response to some idiotic medical statement they put in an SOC.

My vet rep from Buffalo justed called me- this is being squared away.

I filed additional service complaint with the VA just to be sure-

My vet rep feels that I have definitely put my claim into Relative Equipoise already- when you have two good IMOs (one from a treating VA doctor)and the VA has Nada- that is the Benefit of Doubt Doctrine-

but only another VA doctor's opinion at this point

seems to be the answer and they assured me it is going to a specialist.

I reminded my vet rep- yes I have already tipped the scales in my favor- as he agreed- and the fact that NO one at VA medically diagnosed and treated Rod properly (documented FTCA settlement and 1151 award)in 6 years would indicate a negative medical opinion from some VA specialist would be in the same category of the quack stuff

that Rod's med recs are full of.

I would slap that down with another IMO-

My vet rep and I went over the critical evidence-it actually is one single med rec which will win this claim.That is all I ever needed. I am fully confident I will succeed.

Of course- that is if the VA does drive me completely nuts first.

Berta you will win cause its just your incredible fortitude. I am so impressed with how far you have come since we met on Prodigy.

Quite a journey from someone who did not have a clue to an expert. But you were like many when you started including me. I did not know why but I knew that the VA was wrong about my claim. Than you found out and beat them at their own game.

Dont suppose that someone in finance has been posting debits for his account to some unknown bank account? :unsure:

Naa no VA employee in finance, especially Austin Texas would ever do that!!

Must be a "clerical" error.. :rolleyes:

Im Paranoid though..

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
