    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

Does anyone have any info on P3 profiles/compensation? I had a P3 profile for arthritis of my left anke due to a service connect accident where my leg and anke was broken. I also was diagnosed and treated for lupus while in the military. My profile read as follows : Left ankle arthritis, arthrits. No bending, stooping,crawling,jumping,running(may sub required 2 mile run with walking 1 1/2 mile in 23 minutes for PT test.), No prolong standing (over 2 hrs, with a 45 min. break.) This profile was issued in 1983. My record is full of respraining, and complications from my ankle. I was granted 10% when I was medically retired in 1988. Over the years my ankle and lupus has gotten worse. I must use a cane, walker, and electric wheelchair to get around. I filed a claim for worsing of condition mmost rencently, (2003). My case is on appeal. Iwas briefly awarded 100% for ptsd, severe depression, anxiety, unemployability, I received 100% for 2 years(July2004-Jan.2oo6. When I appealed some other issues and the effective date, the CUE'd me and reduced me back to 60%. I have requested assistance with locating military and medical records, but they refuse to comply with their duty to assist! When I requested a formal hearing I told the hearing officer that I was still waiting for records from the VA, I could not defend myself in the hearing because they refused to provide me with the records from my last C&P. I went to the hearing anyway and told the hearing officer what happened and they reduced me anyway. I have both of the VA manuels and I know them regs better than most so...I was in voc rehab 3 times. I have had 6 VR counslors since 1988 when I was medically retired. I was placed on independant living in or about 2004. My case is solid. T-bird,/ole timers crew, you guys helped me in 1997 to get in voc rehab again... My old handle was sistasoldier/sistavet.

I sure could use some help. :rolleyes:

Holla Back :huh:

"When I appealed some other issues and the effective date, the CUE'd me and reduced me back to 60%."

Did you NOD that decision?

Did they use your Voc Rehab records against you? stating that your educational experience has rendered you employable?

Did they find medical proof of actual improvement in your SC condition?

Do you have a vet org representing you?

"I have requested assistance with locating military and medical records, but they refuse to comply with their duty to assist!"

The VA will send you a copy of your VA medical records upon request to the Records Access Officer at the VA that treats you.

The SMRs and other service records- you can get yourself at NARA:

If you have private medical records I suggest that you write to the doctor directly to get these records.

This is VA terrorism at its worst. Because you file a CUE the VA retaliates and reduces you!!!! That is dirty pool.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
