  • 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

As long as it doesn't go from an FDC to a Reg A$$ Claim, be patient, one way or the other, a Decision will eventually be made.

I don't see an SC % listed on your profile?

Just be sure that whatever bank account is set up as your VA Direct Deposit account, the notifications are set to Txt & Email you real-time regarding all financial transactions.

I've always got my Retro direct Deposit 2 - 4 weeks before anything showed up on E-Ben. As for the actual Award Letter, anywhere from 2 to 4 mos after the Retro hit.

Have to admit though, this past 01/03/16, E-Ben had a mid 12/2015 Award Listed, Retro Hit a week later. Maybe E-Ben has finally got their act together. A 04/16 EED CUE Review Retro hit 07/16, E-Ben still showed it as an open claim when I received the Award letter end of 08/16. E-Ben was a little slow on that one.

Thanks Gastone, 

my situation is this. I'm currently 70%. 40 for hearing, 30 for shoulder, 10 for  tinnitus and 10 for bhronchitis. 

I submitted a FDC in February for mental condition to include PTSD, (which was submitted with a ton of evidence including a completed  DBQ) a bladder condition (CUE from years back) and secondary shoulder condition. 3 conditions total in this most recent claim.

I have been scheduled for CP for the bladder and shoulder for Jan 4th of 2017.  Nothing scheduled for the mental health claim. It's been at least 3 weeks since my ebenefits stated "prep for notification" and nothing  hit my account and nothing in the mail. Then a few days ago it went back to pending decision. 

So now that you have the details, any thoughts?

The PTSD DBQ, was that the result of an actual VA Forensic C & P Psychiatrist or Psychologist PhD?

A PTSD DBQ completed by any other Private or VA MH Clinician, takes a backseat to the Mandatory VA Forensic PTSD C & P Exam using the DSM V criteria. The Secondary Shoulder & Bladder issues could be resolved without the need for a C & P, providing the necessary Compelling Evidence (Med Recs & DX's) are in the hands of the Rater.

    • 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
