  • 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

PTSD C&P

Question

I was a USMC door gunner in Iraq and have been rated at 30% for PTSD after a MAYBE 15 minute interview last year at the VA. My rep advised me not to appeal but to ask them to reconsider the rating. I was scheduled within 2-3 weeks for another C&P Exam and I went there yesterday in Myrtle Beach SC. WOW what a different interview.. this was very intense and lasted the entire hour. Was emotional at times and he asked a lot of questions.

But when he looked up at the clock, while I was talking, he said well our time is about up and I think I have all the info I need to make a good decision. I felt like we still had lots to talk about but it was over. OH WELL... wait and see..

I completely understand that..... I learned when a worked at a vet center- there is never enough time to talk about combat....it was Vietnam then......and Vietnam is still studied by our Military as Lessons Learned and although  as my husband said -(it was horrible and wonderful-he loved the Vietnamese people he met)

these things never go away......are you tied into a Vet Center or have significant other to be a sounding board?

Make sure-if the reconsideration request does not produce a response from VA, that you file the NOD in time. One year deadline on NODs.

Did the rep seek any CUEs they might have made on the 30% award?

Sorry, I don't know what this means. My rep thought the 30% was too low as did my Psychiatrist. I have a great wife but really I don't talk about much with anyone other than the Dr I see. Sometimes I wish I had just left all this buried somewhere in me but the older I get the worse it seems to bother me.

    • 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.
