  • 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.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
