  • 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

I Am Not Incompetent. How Do I Convince The Va?

Recommended Posts

asknod you say you have used firearms in anger many times and you and you were actually kicked out of the military, and yet you are interested in "old guns that go rat-a-tat-tat."

That's pretty xxxxxxx hypocritical. Maybe you should evaluate your own situation before you shit your opinion onto the internet.

to original question of fiduciary - if someone is helping you with your bills even just keeping you organized can be flag for them to set up a fiduciary, it happened to me and i got bergmann and moore vetlawyers.com to handle it.

on the anger issue and guns, i know i may get blasted by folks, but if you are anger is such that you cannot control it and since you got fired from 2 jobs for assault, it seems like it is. then no personally i don't think you should have guns and the va will probably feel the same way. like asknod said each veteran is different but given the severity of your symptoms - well if you could control your anger then it wouldn't be a problem, but that does not seem to be the case.

i'm loath to strip any person of their right to have a weapon, but when they have a history of violence and have trouble controlling that anger - then it's really for their safety and the safety of others around them and i have to put safety first, i do not want anyone to have easy access to a gun if they have feelings/thoughts of suicide or homicide - rights or not

Thanks for answering the original question. Any information helps.

I don't understand why you could possibly presume to assess my competency off two sentences. You have no clear understanding of my ability to control myself, but you feel some need to comment on my right to bear arms.

How about you provide general information on what I can expect from the VA and you trust that I can assess myself better than a stranger who only knows two very condensed sentences about me.

I don't need to be insulted when I am asking for information.

proudveteran - i'm not trying to insult you. what you can expect from the va is to look at your current situation financially whether you get help with it or not and your current symptoms and how well managed they are, they will then based on your history and what you tell them decide whether they recommend a fiduciary, if they decide you need a fiduciary. chances are they will also want you not to have guns. you can appeal the fiduciary decision but make sure you do it right away you don't want to much time to go by between getting the letter and disagreeing with it.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
