  • 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

Finished all my C&P Exams.

Question

Hello everybody, I'm very new to the claims process and had just submitted my claim October 20th last year. This week I was scheduled and finished all my C&P exams (3 of them). What can I expect as a wait time once the exams are finished for a decision? I've read usually within a month to couple months? VA estimated time for completion of claim is between 5/17 and 9/17. Not too sure how accurate that is considering I've already gotten my C&P exams done only 2.5 months into my claim. Also, I'm not familiar with any of the terminologies used and abbreviations. 

 

I'm in the VA Palo Alto health care system, not too sure if that make a difference or if the claims are rated at a central location. Also, I had my claim exams done at QTC Medical in stockton CA. I've read that you can download a copy of your exam, how does one go about doing that?

 

I appreciate the help everybody,

 

-Jaime

You can expect to wait. Any Decision less than a Year, would generally be associated with an FDC that stayed an FDC. Did you file an FDC?

Next, you indicate you recently, this week had (3) Separate C & P Exams, at your VMC or were they QTC?

If at your VMC, the C & P DBQ's should be posted to your MHV Medical File by next Wednesday.

If your at your VMC, M or Tues, check the Med Recd Dept and get the copies of the DBQs. Otherwise start checking your MHV site today or Monday. Get the DBQ copies, redact them and post so we can see what your working with.

Your a self-proclaimed FNG to the VA claims System. Chasing your tail worrying about when you'll get a Decision is a waste of time.

Then there's  always the possibility that your Claim gets Denied, spend your available free time being productive, learning about the VA NOD and Appeal requirements and procedures, just in case.

Mine was not a fully developed claim.

The C&P exams were done by QTC medical on Monday and on Wednesday this week. There is nothing yet uploaded to MyHealthevet as of yet. But I will post the exams once I obtain them, is the process different for QTC?

Also, another question; What about this button? If I submitted all my evidence and had my C&P exams done; doesn't it make sense to hit this button --->  Ask VA to decide claim

In my experience, you won't see the QTC exam info in MyHealtheVet.  At least, I never saw mine there, and it was in Spring of 2015. 

I also clicked that button, but my made no difference in getting results. Emailing Sec. McDonald and UnderSec Hickey at the 15 month point is what generated movement on mine.  

I agree with Gastone.  Read a book, find a hobby, just put your mind elsewhere, because the claims process can drive you nuts.

So actually, my claim just finished way ahead of what the commonality is on this forum. I think we need to take into account the difference between modern electronic medical records and old carbon copies. My claim just finished today at exactly the 115 day mark and it WAS NOT a FDC. I even got way more of a rating than I was expecting/brainwashed to expect. It seems the only people who have any real issues with claims when you served pre 2000's to be honest and I personally give the VA lots of credit because I'm in shock.

    • 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.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
