  • 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

Claim Turn-around time

Question

So, here's the thing. I got off active duty in 2012 after 6 years of AD. Since 2012, I was granted 40% for my dual knee replacement after getting injured in combat. Since I was only granted 40%, I had continuously submitted for PTSD disability as I'm treated for it and have been for 2 years now through a non VA psychiatrist. I've had numerous sessions within VA Mental Health regarding my mental state, issues, etc.

Now, about 2 weeks (Nov 2016), I submitted another claim after being denied about 6 times since 2012. I gave as much detailed information as possible. My symptoms, issues, etc.

This is the weird part. I've never seen such a quick turnaround. The claim is already in the  "Preparation for Decision" phase, with an estimated completion of Feb 2017. Could anyone elaborate on why all of a sudden the process is much quicker? I haven't received any appointment to have an evaluation and I'm just stunned. Does this have anything to do with Trump making changes to the VA? Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks brothers!!

It doesn't have anything at all to do with Trump.

I wouldn't pay much attention to whatever ebenefits says the claim status is, to be honest.

If that status is accurate, I'm guessing that your claim is about ready for a decision because there is no rationale to send you to an exam.  Did you send in any new and material evidence?

It could have a lot to do with president elect trump?

AS  he is in his transition electing officials to his cabinet!

I can only imagine that some VA employees will get the boot as he makes his 10 point transition within the VA.

And Make the VA Great Again. 

At least we all can HOPE.

If you don't have a VA Diagnose for DSM-5 PTSD  then you will likely be denied for that reason.

Its good you see VA MH for your treatment ...you also need the VA Dx and a nexus ....to show the combat events is the reason or cause that you actually do have PTSD, IF you have a CIB or Purple Heart Award  then your stressor's are conceded  and you won't need to mention those.

Tyr asked the key question-

if the PTSD claim has been denied many times already, the VA requires New and Material evidence to re-open it.

How about getting all your PTSD C & P DBQs, including the most recent, redact and post them so we can get a grip on your situation? Posting redacted copies of your "Numerous PTSD Denial" letters would also be very helpful.

Have you ever NOD'd any of your PTSD Denials? If not, why?

    • 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.
