  • 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

I’m somewhat confused. Back in July I had opened a new claim and yesterday I received a phone call from the VA Hospital in Columbia, Mo and was told that I have a C&P Exam appointment scheduled on 17 Nov and that I do NOT have to be there for that appointment? Has this ever happened to anyone and should I be concerned?

What was the claim for?  what disability was the exam for?  Do you have a VSO?

This concerns me. This AM about 6:15 on Fox news they said thousands of  vets are still waiting for appointments over 30 days at VA and then said some appointments had been cancelled by the VA.......

(like in the last appointment scandal).....

I assumed they meant initial VA appts? but  not sure.....

It is possible they (VA) have all they need to decide your claim,such as nexus established and very recent exams...... but I sure would not put any money on that.

If you filed in July-of this year, I can hardly think they even obtained your SMRs and all med records yet.

Why not ask IRIS what is what.

Go to www.va.gov and click on the Contact Us thing,and then on Ask a question.You will be directed to IRIS. Ask IRIS for an email reply so they cant make something up by phone.

Something seems wrong here.

The only thing about not being there for your C&P is they only go by medical records and look at them close to file a report to the VA Raters.  are you bedridden? or incapacitated in any way?

This seems unfair in my opinion. veterans need to be at their C&P I would think.

 What if they don't look at all the records  or Records Pertinent to your claim.

Above post error

They are suppose to file a report to the Rating Dept after viewing all your records of evidence. (not close) sorry bout that

I f you have enough probative (EXCELLENT EVIDENCE) and every thing is lined up so-to -speak

They will go ahead and rate you  without a C&P.

If you disagree with the rating % you can file NOD within 1 year of the Decision.

    • 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.
