  • 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

Can expect a favorable outcome?

Question

Requested a DRO review and and the VA finally did another C&P exam that had a medical opinion this time (last C&P exam did not have a medical opinion). The C&P examiner stated "The condition claimed was at least as likely as not (50% or greater probability) incurred in or caused by the claimed in-service injury, event or illness." The examiner gave a clear and reasonable rationale for his findings that my service records shows a history of the disability ect... I read my entire C-file and there is no negative or contradictory evidence in there.

Nothing is always certain especially with the VA so my question is can I reasonably expect a favorable outcome?

I say Yes!!! but no one knows what the VA will say.

 "I read my entire C-file and there is no negative or contradictory evidence in there"

GREAT! They look for negative stuff in SMRs too but I really think you will be OK.

I maybe  out of line here

but I had a

VA C&P Examiner said some bad hings about me in his report , things that he went back 30 plus years to try to get my benefits taken away.

Proposal  letter to reduce back to% was sent  I elected a DRO Hearing at my R.O. in person and a rating specialist was present too.

anyway he (C&P Examiner) had said many lies in his report to discredit me.....it never worked for him, I had to see a private specialist to straighten it out.

 Lucky for me the DRO Believed my specialist Over the VA C&P Examiner....but his report is still in my C-File, I ask the DRO to remove his report from my C-File and destroy it...DRO said he can't do that because its an officially Documented Record....However  he also said once my claim was decided /approved  the VA can't go back and use his report against me & its now considered a closed claim.

this was back in 2002

I requested my C-File five month ago and still haven't received it. They say if or when you request your file you shouldn't put in a claim because that will slow it down due to the VA still updating your file or you have something pending....is that true?

Who ordered this recent C & P?

Could you post a redacted copy of the C & P DBQ? You should see a copy of it, on your MHV site, under clinician Treatment Notes.

You indicate that your Requested a DRO Review.

What "New & Material Evidence," not available for the original Rater's  review, did you supply?

RickyDee, never wait on a C-File Delivery request, to file a claim. At the very least, begin the FDC Claim on your E-Ben site to lock in your Retro.

Things may and could have changed, but unless there's some Magic Dust being sprinkled at the VA, FOIA C-File requests can still take up to 14 mos to be delivered. Way too long to wait before filing an Appeal or New Claim.

      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

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
