  • 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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • 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.
