  • 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

    • 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.
