  • 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

Wait for CUE decision or file additional sc claim?

Question

My husband is 100% P/T disabled vet TDIU, no further exams. With the new proposal to eliminate the TDIU for vets who have reached retirement age, we are very concerned that his TDIU will be cut. Because of his disability, he has very little social security. There have been SC claims that have been denied, but may be able to be re submitted. The issue is that he has a CUE pending and his VA lawyer told him "Don't rock the boat with any new claims because it will set the CUE back even further". Any thoughts on this as to what he should do?

If he has a Lawyer let him handle it that's his job, but if it a VSO than you 

might need to check with somebody else.

@marina53 first stay calm this has a long way to go before it becomes law if at all and it's just as likely as not that many TDIU veterans will be grandfathered in.

A Pending claim takes precedence over other claims. In other words , in my experience this is what happened.

Filed CUE 2003 and a different CUE in 2004. When Nehmer came out (2010) I filed a new claim.

My CUEs were still pending BVA transfer in 2012 when Nehmer VARO started to adjudicate my AO IHD death claim. The RO was deliberately stalling on it.

I contacted the Nehmer VARO to state in writing that my pending CUEs had relevance to a proper AO IHD award.( Sent them copies of the evidence and the CUE claims.)

Then in mere weeks ( I also had to CUE them over the first decision which only tooks a few weeks -to fix ( GCY CUE)2012 -I dont know if I mentioned that CUE here....I forget it...

In mere weeks they awarded the Nehmer AO IHD claim and also awarded the 2 CUE claims.

I felt my CUEs had priority but don';t know if I found a citation to support it- yet it didnt matter when I go to the Nehmer VARO.

Have you posted any thread here before on the CUE claim? I cant find any thread on it.

Thanks Tbird----I agree with you 100%!!!!! 

As you know VA has pulled BS like this before that goes no where except it causes anxiety to vets who sure do not need more anxiety in their lives.

Berta, I posted in May a question on how long does it take for  a docket number to be assigned to a CUE case. My husband filed Form 9 over 2 years ago to Denver Regional Office and has not heard anything, nor can he get any information when he calls them. His VA attorney tells him to be patient and not to file any additional claim till the CUE is done. If the CUE comes through properly, he should be 100% schedular, not just 100% TDIU.That is the dilemma now, with this new mess regarding the elimination of TDIU for older vets. He is planning to run this all by the attorney again. And hopefully, as TBird said, it won't go anywhere,

    • 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

    • 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.
