  • 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

C and P took 10-15 min, Is that bad?

Question

 I had a C and P exam 2 weeks ago for an increase in my PTSD rating. Im currently at 30% and when I did my C and P exam, the examiner asked my 3 questions and pretty much rushed me out of there. I feel like the exam should have taken longer than 10-15 minutes with the 36 pages of evidence fro my therapist. Does this sound bad, in that my claim will be denied. Thank you

It just depends on your evidence  if your evidence shows an increase is warranted.  yes 

But from my experience with a PTSD C&P  My Exam took 90 minutes   and some can take hours.  but now with all the reading off the computer  the examiners have a week or so to read all your information and  when the C&P Exams are scheduled   they usually read all of it from the computer.so 15 minutes  if he got to the part that the evidence showed  and warranted an increase within 15 min.

sometimes its hard to say if you had a favorable exam or not   because some examiners are not very friendly  or have a good up-beat personality.  some just go by what the evidence states and that's it.

Well glad you made it thru the exam bud. As stated above it can be good or bad. Really hard to tell as the process is much smoother and Docs have access to most of the evidence these days. Now I had an PTSD exam two weeks ago and I was in there for a couple of hours, but everyone is different. Just try to relax, and keep us posted. God Bless

I knew something wasn't right when I was in and told someone at medical, the corpsmen sent me to the naval hospital to see a psychiatrist who of course chalked it up to a "phase of life crisis" but that was in my record.  That was in the early 90's, I didn't seek treatment at the VA or file a claim until 2006.  I had seen counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, psychologist and been hospitalized once between my discharge and filing.

Ok, my issue is I had an event, but I never got treated for psych issues while in. So if there was an inservice event, and I received a favorable c&p with a diagnoses that points to the event being the cause. Could I still be rated even though there was no in service treatment?

    • 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.
