  • 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

Disability Benefits Questionare

Question

I am filing for TDIU. My rating has been at 60% for more than 20 years.  I am trying to make sure that I have everything I need before submitting the claim.  I am wondering whether I need to have my doctor complete the Disability Benefits Questionare.  I am applying for TDIU for a condition that is already service connected.  I also have a nexus letter from my doctor.

As far as the DBQ, my VA doctor, who has now retired, answered most of these questions over the years in filling out forms related to my job.  That is why I am not sure whether the form is needed or not.

Thanks for your input.

A favorably filled out DBQ makes things a lot easier and hopefully faster. With or without one the VA is likely to call for a C&P.

(Standard RO CYA practices)

Do you know if your C&P is att he VAMC or QTC?

If your current SC Condition is Mental Health...PTSD/DEPRESSION ect,,ect,,

check your MH Notes on Ebenny's and make copies of'' all favorable information'' they may have noted, take those with you to your C&P.

However you can check the Ebenny's Notes on your S.C Condition..especially  if you are being treating at your VAMC.

Some times the C&P Examiner don't get everything!

Buck52 - Thank you for your reply.  You made great points.  I haven't received any notice of C&P, although I expect that I will be given one.  Time will tell.

 

Thank you again.

Last month I finally put in for an increase on my PTSD and A&A. I ended up having to C&Ps last week with Civilian VES Docs. What sucked was the first Doc had access to Ebenefits and actually had my VA Medical Records. It was the PTSD Review Increase Exam. The second Doc was for Physical health and A&A. She had no access to Ebenefits and no records whatsoever. So thankfully I had my SSDI and VA Doc Notes as well as my last 2 yearly Home Assessments for my wife's Caregiver program stating that I still need a full time caregiver. It sucks that we cant see those exams. It always helps to have those DBQs bud. My VA Psych Doc was going to fill out my DBQ next week but she had to have last minute surgery, so it will be a few weeks. Get your wife or a good buddy, to do support letters as well, Anything helps, and makes the VA's job easier even though we can submit every piece of evidence, yet VA still orders C&P exams. Good luck and keep us posted. God Bless

    • 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.
