  • 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

FDC Decisions seem to be taking 4 to 6 mos, Reg A$$ Claims, depending on number of issues and complexity, can take over a year.

What type of claim did you file? How about posting a redacted copy of your C & P DBQ (s?), help us get a grip on your situation.

Given that only about 15% of first time claimants are awarded benefits, you need to understand there is a high degree of probability that you will have to appeal.  

Currently, VARO claims take about a year (sometimes a little less), and appeals to the BVA are about 5 years.  

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  Of course, you can talk to your VSO who may tell you 125 days.   He probably also would have told you Shinseki will elimate Veteran homelessness by 2012, and may sell you ocean front property in Kansas, too.  

With all that said, you could be one of the lucky ones who get benefits in weeks.  Its very rare, tho.

When you go on your MHV, go to BLUE Button. Do you know approximately when your C & P Exam was held, it was at your VMC, right?

1.  If so, click on the "Customized" for your download.

2. Then put in the approximate Dates of your Exam, allowing about 2 weeks after the Exam Date.

3. check the box for Treatment Notes (Clinician Treatment Notes).

4. Don't check any other Boxes, additional info will just get in your way.

5. Hit the Submit Button. If your C & P Exam was held at your VMC since about 01/2013, your C & P DBQ should be in your Treatment Notes.

In the event that you still don't see it, visit your VMC Medical Record Office, they'll hook you up. Ask the window clerk for just the copy of the  C & P DBQ. While your there, ask for your complete VMC Med Record on CD, always helpful for future reference.

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
