  • 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

You guys with psych issues, how did you prove s/c? 

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?

      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

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
