  • 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

Question

How long on average is an appeal with the Vso.  I know Bronco said his was with his Vso for 18 months.  I believe that to be way to long.

Ok, I have another question about this process.  On my hubbys appeal,. On ebenefits it says it is with Vso.  Does that mean your local Vso, the one he went to to file the appeal?  Appeal was originally filed on 11-12.  It has a docket number.  We sent in labs after it was docketed as advised by local Vso so it would not get lost.   It is showing with Vso on ebenefits.  Does the local Vso send it to someone at D.C. Vso office?

The BVA chairmans report give the appeal times.  We can not tell you how long it will take your VSO to prepare the brief.  

If you post your docket number, someone may know how long until your BVA happens.  If it has a 2012 docket number, then you are coming on about 5 years which is about right.  If you have a docket number, it should have already been through your VSO filing a brief.

Doc number is10-39-312.  If anyone can guess when it should be thru?   We have another issue to.  They did re exams on his cads.  He is 60 percent for that,but temporary.  Today on ebenefits it shows completed as of 9-16-2016.   When I go to historical claims it says authorization review.  And view appeal status.  When you click on view appeal status, we get nothing.  Called ebenefits but they said it wold not show anything.  Then why leave where you can click on it.    I looked back at other time that it showed authorization review it was a denial of the appeal which we have in now for increase in diabetes  an ck sec to diabetes... is it possible for them to take that 60percent away.  He went to the exams that was done by Lockheed Martin.  Lol. It did say ebenefits no doc need from us.  But then it also said they did not receive anything from others.   The only way we even new about this claim was on ebenefits no letter was sent.  Then a call from Lockheed Martin for the appt.. we never got a thing from va asking us for any thing.  Any advic on what to expect.?

    • 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
