  • 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

You would need a strong medical opinion from an independent doctor to determine whether the lung condition is secondary to the CAD.

With the 100% you have now, it could be secondary to any other SC disability you have as well.....but the key word there is "could" and that too would need an IMO/IME.

If he is an incountry Vietnam vet with SC for CAD ( IHD-Nehmer ) his 10% rating might  probably be way too low,if it derives from an older rating decision..

The VA changed their heart disease ratings some years ago, and that influenced some retro IHD ratings under Nehmer.

Can he join us here?

I recently filed for disability for IHD as well as several other items.  I read alot here about the retro for Nehmer, I still don't really understand it.  Does it apply only to those who filed claims and were denied? Also filed for TYPEII, PC and tinnitus.  I was boots on ground in 66-67, watched them spray this crap from our perimeter.  This is my first claim so I'm just sitting and waiting at the moment.  Love this forum!  Jim

Footnote one is explained here and in many discussions as well in the AO forum:

It only applies to Nehmer 2010.

The favorable EED of Nehmer 2010  rests on a past denial of IHD,(CAD) or Hairy Cell B, or Parkinsons in a past VA decision.

I think I posted one of  Rick Spataro's email to me in this link.

He is the NVLSP head Nehmer lawyer and I checked in with him many times to make sure

I had explained Footnote One correctly here as it was the most important part of Nehmer III.

    • 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.
