  • 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

Question about exam & companies that claim to help

Question

First thanks to all of you Veterans for your service. I am in Georgia visiting my uncle. He needed my help the other day in returning some forms to what he thought was the VA. I had set his first email up and that was where the forms were sent. The email was sent to him from: vetcompandpen.com. I was trying to do some research on them, but with little luck. When doing a google search I found a link to a BBB.org complaint, but when i clicked on it I rec'd a 404 error: http://www.bbb.org/north-east-florida/business-reviews/veterans-and-military-organizations/vet-comp-and-pen-in-gainesville-fl-235963268/Complaints.

I did find a company in Florida with the same name but not sure if it is the same company as it actually lists it as a veterinarians,: http://listings.findthecompany.com/l/31696997/Vet-Comp-and-Pen-in-Gainesville-FL, but they are located in same area. It does share the same address though. The company's FB page is: https://www.facebook.com/VetCompAndPen

The bottom line is I feel my Uncle may be getting scammed. They want him to send them all kinds of sensitive medical information and release all his medical records and military records too. Yet the company's profile only has 3 employees and this business is run out of a home. My Uncle is an army vet and he does receive a VA disability compensation, but it is only 25% and he wants to get this increased. i do believe he deserves an increased percentage, but I am not sure he should use this company. he actually thought these people were the VA.

Has anyone ever heard of them, used them, or know anything about them? Does my uncle really need a company like that to get his percentage increased? Can't i just him fill out all the documents etc or am I being naive and one must use a consulting company like them? I sent them an email asking what was the charge for their services, but thus far have yet to receive a response.

Anyway if you got this far, thanks for reading. i am new to forums. I hope i posted this question in the right place.

Sounds like a scam to me and i would stay far away from this company and any others like it!!!!  You can help your uncle with a little guidance from here or your local american legion.  The process is pretty straight forward and if he has been awarded compensation in the past then he can ask for an increase at any time in the future if his problems have gotten worse.  Take your time and read thru this site and a lot of your question have already been asked and if not post the question and someone will answer it here!  Welcome to the HADIT family!!!

    • 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.
