  • 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

A VSO came to my site and admonished me for teaching Vets how to cheat. It figures.

I didnt read your article on that yet Asknod but many years ago the VA OIG investigated web sites that they thoughtcould possibly be inappropriately influencing vets as to going to C & P exams for PTSD.

Of course hadit.com had no info at all to cause the VA OIG any problems on that.

The investigation was well known but all vet reps. vet orgs , etc and any vet sites on line at the time.were concerned about it.

I argued over the 2010 PTSD regs as a few here did ,as to the VA MH requirement but now I think it is a good idea.

Many years ago I thought I had met all the PTSD wannabees in the southern tier of NY. I was wrong.

One of them ran the closest Vietnam Veterans of America org. and one was the director of some big vet org in Rochester,who never served a day in his life and he had all of the combat medals to prove it...:unsure:

I read the article and you clearly said you were kidding....

All a PTSD vet has to do is be honest with the VA at a C & P exam.

A former member here asked me to give him a buddy statement long ago...one reason I Never give out my contact info anymore.....

he knew I was a civilian and a woman and the navy did not have women on board ships for the period of time he wanted the buddy statement for,(maybe 1960s) nevertheless he wanted a buddy statement from me, that would read as if I was a sailor who witnessed a detailed episode he had while on the ship, that would prove he had PTSD..... yeah right......

he did this in email and not here at hadit.........otherwise I think the VA OIG would have picked up on that here as they investigated web sites around the same time this happened......

I don't think it matters who reads Hadit post  can't find out our real names or address or our claims #  this is all suppose to be hidden. if OIG Read these post they don't know who is who.

IF Veteran has evidence to send in with his claim  more power to him/her  how he gets that evidence I would think most veterans are honest about it.

    • 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
