  • 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

Hi - Just want to let everyone know there is hope if your claim is stalled. They are working at the Houston RO. 

I got a call from DRO today, and told me I was granted IU with back pay. (PTSD/MST Rape & ATT Murder) 

I have my Navy retirement too,  so I think this is the end of the road for me as far as claims go. 

I will continue to pray for adjudication with other claims. This was exhausting. 

Graduating in 72 days with my BS in Criminology- Thanks Voc Rehab.

This is wonderful news and I hope your post gives others hope!

I assume this sets up CRDP for you as well.

CRDP is supposed to be automatic but I dont know how long it takes these days.

Congrats on the BS degree too! In Criminology?????

I think the way VA handles claims is a crime. LOL  

But it looks to me like it took a little over 2 years for you to get this award?   That is not a bad time frame these days....

Treat yourself good L, a great meal, new clothes etc etc whatever it takes, because you have won a Victory and many of us know how absolutely Exhausting the claims process can be...relax now...it is OVER!

Probably every one of us  have made mistakes with our claims , L, but I love what you said...there is Pride in knowing you did this by yourself...

When I had vet reps, long ago , they made far more mistakes than I did.

I did much better when I started fighting  my VA battles myself, too.

That is not easy for every vet with a claim but the info here at hadit is way beyond the expertise of 

many vet reps and VSOs, who might have hundreds of claims on their desks when most of us only have one or two.

Great on the CRDP- that usually always goes OK between VA and DFAS , but I dont trust VA to handle that right every time.

    • OK so I had pancreatectomy in 2003 due to an impacted goldstone 2/3 of my  Pancreas was removed I am type one diabetes with very large scars continued diarrhea stomach problems Constant back and shoulder pain I recently received a Nexus letter from my  endocrinologist related to my service in the gulf war.  Any suggestions or advice from anyone
    • 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.
