  • 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

C&P Exam for 100% rated

Question

I'm rated 100% scheduler for 2 years. My ratings letter advises i'm not P&T due to one item (Planter Fasciti)s  possibly improving. Irony is even without that rating i would still be 100%. My ratings added are over 300% combined. I'm 55, on SSDI for service connected disabilities and unable to work. 

I recently (last week) did a C&P exam to check this item. Checking the benefits website it is in gathering evidence stage. I did not question the exam, thinking that maybe it will (after being reduced or remaining same) assist with my case being changed to P&T by rating officer.

Question: Should I upload to the claim, a statement the rating should not be reduced, and/or the claim should be rated P&T, since any change will not effect the 100% for the rating officer and/or whomever and copy part of Electronic Code of Federal Regulations?

§3.327   Reexaminations.

(iv) In cases of veterans over 55 years of age, except under unusual circumstances;

especially -

(vi) Where a combined disability evaluation would not be affected if the future examination should result in reduced evaluation for one or more conditions.

Thanks for any info or guidance.

You can up load this but if I  was you I would go get an IMO and ask the Doc if he can look at your records that pertain to this disability& Examine you and give his opinion as to the condition now  that in his pro opinion your condition as worsen...also request P&T be given & Attach it.

Actually you should have already recieved the P&T plus possible SMC S or any that meets the SMC Criteria special ratings table!

Not saying anything bad against your VSO if you use one? but I'd sure question some of his actions  if this was my claims.

Note: Normally  a P&T Rating is given when the disability is of nature or static and not likely to improve in the veterans life time.

Never depend on a Rating officer to do the correct thing.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
