PREPARATION FOR DECISION! CALL FROM ST. PETERSBURG VARO

Question

Hello all!

I am in prep for decision now, but have heard from the MST coordinator from St. Petersburg VARO where my claim is, and she said unofficial.......probably 100% P&T! I still am grateful for anything at this point.  she said if they do 70%, all I do is turn around and NOD if for 100%, but she said everything is lined up in my favor for 100% P&T.........I feel blessed whatever the outcome, but I will let you all know when it comes in.  She said to wait about 30 days and then call her personally, but she thinks it will come through in a week or so! fingers crossed!

Based off your MST/PTSD  C&P you should get 100% for that... & along with your other disability's  and if you can't work b/c of this S.C. Disability's they may refer you to IU with P&T  which is a nice rating  but don't let them do that to ya   You Deserve the scheduler 100% kiddo!

However prepare yourself for anything!

I don't trust these people from R.O.They will say what we want to hear (but they work for the VA) and were all happy and then VA Low Balls us.

Just be strong and be  prepared & if your case its all favorable and its what you want then You can dance a jig.

Let us know!  be sure and check out the 100% P&T benefits that you will get   The Property Tax Exemption is especially NICE

Chapter 35 for you your hubby and your kids.

Take you and your Family on a Nice Vacation and enjoy your life.

I wish you the Best

...............Buck

FYI

In case you don't know this/??  

My advise to you is  stay in treatment for your PTSD ( seeing VA therapist) for at least two years after your award,b/c the VA keeps a ''check-up'' on us that has been recently Awarded PTSD  Claim. 

If they do a medical audit so-to -speak and see that your not in treatment  this will put them on Alert and try to propose a reduction in your ratings  that you shown improvement  even with the P&T so watch that.

After 2 years they pretty much leave us alone  5 Years your safer  and 10 years even more safer 20 years your safe  they can't reduce you or send you to a C&P  Only under special circumstances can they reduse  you or they can prove Freud as been committed.

Ain't I full of good news   eh!

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
