  • 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

Prep for notification before C&P??

Question

Today my ebenefits status changed to "prep for notification" as you know from my recent posts I claimed 3 conditions. Bladder (CUE, reopen) shoulder(new) and mental condition to include PTSD (reopen) I have 2 CP exams scheduled for 1-4-17 for the shoulder and bladder. I submitted a ton of evidence for the PTSD including a completed DBQ. Question is, if I haven't had the CP's yet how can they be at the notification process already? Is it possible they are notifying me of the PTSD decision and rating the other 2 later? Question 2, at what point will my disibities be updated on ebenefits? They haven't changed even with the prep of notification. All 3 still show as open claims.

Is it possible they are notifying me of the PTSD decision and rating the other 2 later?" 

Yes...possible........Your PTSD medical evidence was enough N & M for a re open...

If the stressors were verified ,(I think you said they were)your past PTSD claim might have been grandfathered in to the pre- 2010 new PTSD criteria.

And if the DBQ and other medical evidence etc were recent , there might be no need for an additional C& P exam.....

I am only guessing here because I have searched and cannot find the post that you made with the reason they had denied PTSD in the past.

Ok I finally found the post: (in a different thread)

It was denied due to a lousy C & P exam......,in the past......I think they grandfathered the old PTSD claim to pre 2010 PTSD regs OR better yet they called a CUE on themselves.......because of the ridiculous C & P exam you got that they originally denied with.....

as I mentioned before, if they award SC for PTSD now, I think there is a CUE potential for the older denial...

 

but one more point....it is impossible to depend on what ebenefits says because that status changes a lot...

and my opinion on the PTSD claim is only based on what you have posted here....I think it is the strongest claim you have.

to add ,you stated in the other post:

"Yes. As a matter of fact the first time I filed and was denied, the VA conceded my stressor. Do I do have a confirmed stressor on file." 

 

I had the impression you first filed for PTSD , shoulder and bladder issues  in 2001 or 2002????

 

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Hope we get more input here on the PTSD claim from others.....

Berta,

my original file date for PTSD was feb of 2016. My original file date for the bladder was early 2002. I was denied the bladder condition. I received the PTSD denial in sept of this year. It wasn't until I started gathering additional evidence for the reopening of my PTSD claim that I found the discharge physical from 02 that mentioned the bladder issue.

 I decided to reopen the bladder issue on this PTSD claim. I also decided to include a left shoulder issue as a secondary claim for a service connected right shoulder  

as it currently sits, I have a CP on the 4th of Jan to examine my bladder and shoulder  

The PTSD claim has not been scheduled for CP exam  I'm pretty sure all the evidence I submitted, including a DBQ is holding water  

hopefully that will clarify things  

john

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.
