    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

 Our late Carlie got a C&P Request just months before her untimely passing   and she wrote the  VA Under  Secretary  and the secretary cancelled her C&P...However every veteran is different.

I'LL SEE IF i CAN FIND HER POST ON THAT!

Do you get your treatment care from the VA?

Has a VA Dr notice and mention to you that your disability is showing improvement?

and have you had this disability that you been rated for from 2003 concurrently?

Has your disability shown an improvement?

Is your disability considered chronic in nature? (with no future exams scheduled)

Are you  the age of 55?

If none of the above...you may want to email the VA under secretary and request a cancellation of the up coming C&P..AND LET THEM KNOW WHY!

If your pcp can write you a letter stating there's no improvement in your SC Disability at this time  or go get a private specialist and let him/her read your medical records and ask for there pro medical opinion on your current condition of your S.C  Disability.

 

And also sate its a waist of VA Time and yours  when other veterans can have that C&P Space as much needed to speed up the claims process.

Here is the link to Ms Carlie Post's about getting a C&P Request

I believe she would want all us Veterans to read it when getting a C&P Request after a long period of time has passed.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
