jbowen0205 - i'm not sure we can provide much help here, we focus on VA claims question and your question sounds like you might need an attorney.

I wish i could help man, but i have no experience in this, This is something i think isnt a question of personal stories but is the realm of lawyers.  I would get a good family lawyer and fight this.

I want every vet that has PTSD to get help, but i do see this as another reason why most vets dont get help. These can include

  • losing control of your finances.  Why the VA cares whether i can pay my bills or not is beyond me.  If i can, fine.  If i cant that money has nothing to do with the VA.  If they say i rate 1200 a month, if i spend it on gambling, housing or booze, they shouldnt have a say in what i spend it on, once i deserve it, i deserve it.  If i owe creditors, thats a "me" problem, not them.
  • Losing guns.  I think this is overblown and doesnt happen that often.  it can.  but its a real concern.  But i do agree, if someone does have suicidal and homicidal tendencies (and there is a watershed between "i have thought about it before" and "i am planning on it/have planned on it/will do it".) from owning a weapon.  If you are wishing to cause someone harm, im sorry but i dont want you with one.
  • used against you in court.  Such as the family case above, i have a real fear, that if i get in an altercation with someone, say they jumped me outside a bar or on th street and they say "hey he attacked us, he was acting crazy" if a jerk DA sees i have PTSD, then that will be good enough to not be believed.

I dont know what the answer is.

    • 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.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here

      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.

      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.

      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.
