  • 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

VARO wants more ROI authorization

Question

This is my situation:

But,  the St Pete VARO sent me requests for more ROI authorization signatures. But I have already sent in my 5103.  Do I still have to send in more ROI's?  If so, I have no idea for what who or when to authorize them for.

Another issue, is out of the blue, this C&P Contractor company QTC Medical Services Informed me yesterday that I will have 3 C&P Exams next week ( Dec 5,6th).  Two of which are in Tampa.

For someone who has serious issues with stress and anxiety, thats like getting hit with a ton of bricks.  lol

Seriously though, the ROI thing is bugging me,  I don't know what info they are still looking for, and they want the signature by a Dec 4th deadline.

I have sent in my 5103 with a list of all the evidence they have and I gently reminded them that they ALREADY had a TDIU from me from a couple years ago.  I asked them to let me know if they lost anything else.

 

 

any input would be appreciated.

Nobody said it would be easy. At this point, what alternatives do you have? Failure to show up or miss filing deadlines for anything will do nothing but add time and possibly damage your overall situation.

Just maybe, your getting close to the Jackpot.

JuanP,  I agree with Gastone,  it's actually a great sign you've been scheduled for exams,  make sure you go to those exams,  be honest about your worst days,  write down everything you want to make sure the examiner knows,  because if your like me,  there are always a few things I forget to tell them. Also comply with the release of info requests,  I believe you said that you already sent the form in with a list of what they should already have, which was a very smart move.  You are most likely getting close to the finish line on your claims,  best of luck to you

Also call the 1-800 number and explain (if you havent sent in the ROIs) that you need to know which doctor or agency the va is requesting records from.  I would call them asap.

5103 and 4142s are not interchangable, and the VA is by law required to do some things, even if you send in a 5103 response.

 

Can you write verbatim what the letter says please?

    • 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
