  • 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

CUE, NOD or WAIT ???

Question

Filed for TDIU was denied however VA sent me for C&P exams for Cervical, Lumbar, Migraines and Mental Health, I was told even though my my cervical, lumbar and Migraines should all be increased (will show below C&P exam statements) the examiner will NOT use those contentions on making his decision because they are all 3 in an appeal status (dated 2013 still waiting on appeal) so it screws me out of TDIU.

Question?? Even though those 3 are in appeal shouldn't he of raised the ratings according to the C&P exam results immediately? or does that too have to wait for the appeal to go through??  If these increases are given to me i would be at 100% scheduler.

 

Was rated at 30% cervical due to ROM's this recent C&P exam states (Unfavorable Ankylosis of the entire cervical spine, that should go to 40%)

Was rated at 40% Lumbar Thoracic do to ROM's this recent C&P exam states (Favorable Ankylosis of the entire thoracolumbar spine, that should go to 50%)

Was rated at 30% for Headaches including Migraines and this new C&P exam states (YES to having very prostrating and prolonged attacks of migraines/non-migraine pain of severe economic inadaptability this should be rated at 50%)

Need Advice Please!

You were denied TDIU but have 90%?

Were you employed when they denied TDIU?

Have you started a different thread here recently?

I think he  means the 3 disability's he has been  S.C. & rated for and if he gets them  increase to 50% 40% 40%  that will put him up to the 100% Unfortunately this is wrong  if this is his way of thinking.

In my calculations with VA Math  those rating combined is a rating of 82%  so it would be a combined rating of 80%

    • 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.
