  • 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

Hello everyone, I should introduce myself. I retired from the army in 2004 after 26 years, 21 of which was active duty. I currently reside in Kentucky and have been given a 50% total rating (7 different things at 10%) My VA shrink told me that she had not seen someone with so many things wrong with such a low total compensation and that was as she was diagnosing me for depression and anxiety LOL.

Anyway, it is nice to be here and learn from all of you.

Tim:

Welcome to Hadit. Looks like the VA has lowballed your ratings. If you are not able to work due to any service connected condition you should draw 100%. Hang in there this is the place to move your claim along.

Hi Tim,

I am sure that the folks on this site will be of much benefit to you. You will really be surprised by their knowledge.

I appreciate your posting for me.

I notice that you have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression also.

Hang in there and you will receive your compensation.

Always and Welcome,

Josephine

Are you a candidate for the concurrent receipt meaning your retirement pay and disability pay?

I think if you were 100% you would be. You are in the right place here.

Thank you all for your welcomes.

I am indeed entitled to concurrent receipt and disbaled pay. You get that if you are retired and are awarded 50% compensation. I am also in the process of paying back a Special Separation Bonus I received in 1993. That will be paid off in July at the currnet amount they are collecting out of my retirement check, so I am trying hard to not mess that up too much. I have sent in a NOD on three of the things I was evaluated on, and I think the time is about right to file on the depression/anxiety. I know it sounds weird waiting, but I do like to have a plan for the future, plus it has allowed the VA psychiatrist and psychologist two appointments a piece to this point with a thrid scheduled for Wednesday. I wanted to establish some treatment before I filed.

    • 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.

    • 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.
