  • 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.

Yes I do have a VSO, called him yesterday and left a message.  The claim was for Sleep Apnea  (SEC).

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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
