  • 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

Currently in NOD review, but have new MH appointment and weekly meetings

Question

Good day all,

quick question. May be a little confusing but I will do my best. My comp is currently under review for NOD. However, I recently admitted myself to a walk in VA clinic for MH. It is not one of the issues contested in my NOD. Do I have to file a new claim, or do I assume that all of this will work itself out. 

I'm not proud of the reason I went to the walk in, and I don't want to ask the question as if I'm trying to pull a bigger percentage, but after reading threads, I feel safer asking here than there. Thanks all.

The VA will not consider a walk- in to a MH clinic as a New claim.

It is not one of the issues contested in my NOD. Do I have to file a new claim," Yes, Unless you already have an established SC for the TBI and it might be related to that rating...??? 

 "or do I assume that all of this will work itself out.  "

We cannot 'assume' anything with the VA. I am even assuming too much here myself....to suggest maybe it is related to  your TBI.....

TBIs are almost always very traumatic events and VA must rate PTSD separately from the actual TBI...if they can....or will

Thanks. I have a lot of mixed emotions, then add "hey, can I add this or start up a new claim" to relive it again in front of someone different. I'm scheduled for weekly meetings UFN. I know I shouldn't assume anything, at least sensible when it comes to the VA. I guess if I decide to open a claim, claim it as PTSD?

I think I would if I were you,and have been diagnosed with a TBI  but I would also, if I were you, read all the info here on TBI and PTSD.

The problem with TBI is, did it come from an Explosion from a IED or from slipping in a shower at the military barracks.....my point is that ,will VA determine a 'stressor' had caused the TBI.

Have they diagnosed you with TBI already or is that one of the issues they denied?

If so, can you scan and attach here their Reasons and Bases for the denial (Cover C File #, Name, etc prior to scanning it.)

    • 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.
